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?
OR, Cut the top off and make it a convertible.
That's hilarious!!! Hey, it will help keep the electronics cool right?
Oh Yeah.. a BONUS!
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....
That'd be cool except for the roll cage. Kinda like a convertible batmobile with a roll cage.........lol.
Yo, those are some gnarly pics. What the heck happened to that Fazon. I would have cried.
Soooo, this happened today...
Then you were driving it right!
Yup, right into a tree! 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
