Yea, after I saw that Fazon, I didn't feel so bad about having to rebuild my Kraton...

Think I have everyone here beat with carnage.....lol. Run two 3cell lipos with 25c ratings for almost 5 minutes. Next thing I know car stops dead in its tracks with no response at all. As I'm walking over to it I then notice the flames, one of the batteries decides to let go and pops. Burned my battery tray, battery straps, center gear cover, roll cage, receiver box, battery connectors and body. All fixed now though. Replaced body with jconcepts illusion body and got everything else in a kit off eBay for $20 shipped to my door.

Probably the "C" rating on those packs. Minimum is 35C so you may have overheated the battery that let go. JMO.

Nothing some shoe goo and mesh tape can't fix right....??? Lol.... Just messing bro, glad you got it fixed for cheap it sounds. Were they older packs or possibly damaged?

That's exactly what happened!

Unfortunately they were traxxas lipos for my rustler. They were the only 3c I had and wanted to see what the senton would really do.......lol. They were 25c rated....

OR, Cut the top off and make it a convertible.
That'd be cool except for the roll cage. Kinda like a convertible batmobile with a roll cage.........lol.

A few lessons learned:
Led lights on a bashing bumper doesn't last very long: check
Landing on the front is baaaad: check
Landing when facing down is not good: check
Looking away when in mid-air is not very smart: check
Not finishing a backflip is not advisable: check
Jumping high on a hard surface is not very forgivingfull: check

:p

Speed run that ended with me hitting a metal girder at high speed. I went it sideways took a direct impact to the rear chassis brace. Battery tray completely separated from the chassis. Damaged the rear of the motor, bent the chassis, broke a mount off the ESC, broke the front body post and busted a shock top. It wasn't pretty but it could have been much worse.

I think the motor is fine. I took off the back and everything looked good. Shock top went back on. I'll need a new battery tray but that was in my list as a few of the screws had pulled threads on it. I'll definitely get another Voltage Hobbies chassis brace. My biggest question is the chassis. Can I just pound that flat? If not are there aftermarket chassis that are better? Not that I blame the chassis for bending, lol. But if I have to get a new one might as well get a better one.
