Ive been into rc for about four and a half years now and iam always learning something knew. Today I learned a new lesson, Always check your radios settings. I was out ready to drive one of my ntc3's. I started it up and everything was fine. Since I have two tc3's I use one fm radio with switchable channels and custom settings for each car. Since i havent driven my car in a few weeks i didnt remember which car I had out, I thought I had the wrong settings on my radio and switched the custom settting to my other cars and for some reason off it went. It crashed into a curb at about 35mph. It flew up about five feet and landed sideways. I was lucky that the only thing that broke was a cracked bumper. The center driveshaft broke and the chassis bent but it was bent back and nearly straight. Man these things tough.

My .21 NMT ran away and hit a tall curb at at least 45 mph. Result=total front end replacement.
