Before the newest issue of car action came out I was jumping with some friends http://www.rccaraction.com/ubb/smile.gif Well I took my car off a 15 foot high jump that lasted over 30 feet long with a stock motor ( give you a general image of the launch ramp ). The battery was half dead and I wanted to go off one more time on the sidewalk . I wound up casing the wooden landing ramp and snapped the chassis right behing the ESC . So now I have to chase down my battery and front part of the chassis into the street and the ESC , diff , and motor in the opposite direction . Lets just say if you are ever going to do this : never use a stock motor , soft springs , a landing ramp , and a half dead 2000 battery pack off a jump like this . ( Also , if anyone is willing to donate an electric Traxxas Rustler chassis please tell me I ' ll be really happy !) So until I get a replacement next Christmas or somewhere else im going to use my friends new Factory Team GT while he is on vacation > http://www.rccaraction.com/ubb/smile.gif
