    I want you to go back out there and this time ... do it right!!!
    just kidding ....
    my first day my damage was....
    a broken castor mount and a striped differential center hub,,
    I now wish that I would have taken pictures like you did ....

    Just destroyed it...wait, no, that looks still way too new. Just remember each new bit of damage is just character, the more you wreck it, the better it gets. You want to know why? NEW PARTS!

    It was so much fun!!

    I think I just became addicted.

    The tiny damage to a-arm was what I needed to convenience my wife to let me buy parts already!!

    The a arm is only a little bit of plastic that was scrapped.

    It was hard to get the lighting right.

    I'll try to get a better pic if I can.

    I was ramping up my curb already.
    The curbs are just slopes no actual curb.

    So RPM A-arms are the way to go. I nailed a rock at almost top speed and took a chunk out my RPM A-arms and sent it in and they mailed me a new one...great service and lifetime warranty!

    damage is half the fun ... all though a bad crash when you just get started can be frustrating .
    I hit a mail box with my rc10t3 and pretty much totaled it once.. it was at about 60 mph .. broke lots of parts ... also rc's tend to have a magnetic attraction to poles .. lol ask me how i know ...
    i also agree that rpm is the way to go .. in fact a rpm front bumper alone can save you lots in other broke parts ...

    That sucks about your rc10t3.

    How many times have you hit poles?

    I've lost count on how many times I've hit poles ... at my buddys house the neighbors steel clothes line pole has claimed several victims .. I did repair the t3 after the crash ..

    Well my buddy that goes out RCing with me is my constant target. I usually hit him when he is filming me...it happens so often it's just a running joke now. I've even hit him with a plane...the plane was on the ground...or water actually cause it had floats on it but yeah, he is my target.
