The 5 words that did me in............

Post by Tuner1989 » Sun Aug 13, 2006 8:31 pm

I'm gonna race the car............

Well today i finally found a cameraman so i could get some footage of the SS motor in action for the review.
Upon doing so my mothers friend shows up to pick her up. I figure what better way to show how fast this thing is than speed next to a car, right? Well the car backed out, and i followed pulling up alongside, everything was going fine until the car glitched left for some reason. Of course it went right under the van, I tried to keep my cool and steer it back out which i did. Only to be met by having to counter steer again to keep the truck on the road and avoid the curb. All of this was too much for the MZM. After the last counter steer to avoid the curb it flipped on its top. Which slid it right under the front wheel. Then if that wasnt enough the force threw it out in a violent cartwheel only to get run over by the rear wheel as well. And yes the camera was filming. Look and listen closely. Towards the end where the truck goes out of sight once again towards the car on its top, you can hear the 2 plunks following shortly after.

Ouch! :sad:

That would make me feel REAL bad. It did seem impressive with the rolling wheelies though. Maybe you can salvage some of the parts for other projects too.

oh donkey balls. It hurts to look at the pics. :(


Surprisingly the lipo looks undamaged, although I would keep a close eye on it for the next few days.

LOL, thanks guys.

Luckily for me There was a few things on my side, and a rebuild was already in store for this truck.

1: I did not have my Oil shocks Nor my Newly repaired alloy shock towers installed.

2: The alloy wheels are intact, just goes to show you how strong those things really are.

3: I have a Nelly Deluxe + Kyosho board and new lipo pack waiting installation as well.

4: Yes the Motor and Lipoly pack appear to be allright. Not sure about the elec's.

The only real things i have to replace is the front gearbox, chassis, and GPM Knuckles.
