Argh poo, dont you hate it when this happens???:\
Anyway, i checked my plug, saw it was running rich, so i decided i'd tune it, by running it up and down the road. All was going well, i sorted it all out and got it running really good! Everything was perfect! Then, as a took off, it wizzed past me, and as a turned around to follow it, i lost sight of it for merely a second, and saw it headed for a fire hydrant post(fat wooden stake in ground), i turned, but i wasn't quick enough, ka blam! I hit it with the left
wheel, instantly i could see id broken the upper A Arm, and bent a shock cap.
I should have stopped beforehand, as things didnt go well for me before and after the crash, i was walkign across the lawn, Tx in hand, and wtf owwwww, i look at my heel and i have a big ass stick wedged about 2cm sieways into my heel! So i pull it out and kep driving. Then, as i go to take pics for you guys, camera dies -.- borrowed some batters from the tx, and they got stuck!!!!! >: (
So i had to grab tem with pliers! GRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!
I'd say the buggy was going about 35-40 kph, so i guess i was lucky i didnt break more! Still, not really happy, considering i dont have a LHS!!!!!!!:angry:
Argh!!
Anyway, now for what you've all been waiting for, the pictures :(
Sorry i realise i spelt a few things wrong, but the editing is being GAYYY and tries to eat the writing in front of it instead of deleting the error
Just NOT my day :(

Funny how everyone thinks, "I didn't turn in time" instead of, " I never thought about taking my finger off the trigger--I just held on hoping it wouldn't hit..."

First time I let my brother-in-law drive my Slash he watched it go all out into a pole. Didn't hurt the truck mind you, but all he said was, "I couldn't let go." And he wonders why I won't let anyone drive my LST...

Your computer generated image of the incident was very helpful.
For health's sake, I think you need to put on some weight.

Now that you mention it, i kinda was thinking that lol.

Yes thank you rolex, lol
I've always been a skinny kid i spose :p:

Well if you look at my high quality computer generated imaging of the crash you'd see i was on the sidewalk. The reason for this was a car was coming down the court, so i drove it up the driveway, then went to take off and go AROUND the pole and rip up the road, as you can see i missed the around part.

Well, firstly its called toyworld, and they stock about 5 Rc Models. They are absolutey hopeless as they have no idea about Rc. The reason i say they will horrificly overcharge me is because, they are normally extremely expensive, and the way they see it is i can't go anywhere else for parts so they can be as expensive as they like. I dont know of anywhere that stocks my buggy, not even online. =(
