    Now what happened to that brake and throttle linkage...?

    And damn - That shell was only two weeks old...

    :D

    Worse things happen at sea... Wouldn't be so bad; but my wheels where fresh out the pack and I sliced a tyre wall to shreds :( Trust me, the damage is under that concrete stuff somewhere.

    Wow, i was gonna say, were you bashing it in a concrete mixer?

    Looks like you really needed that rollcage protector, otherwise could have been more costly.

    Not too sure; had it about 8 weeks now from new...

    It's had (That I can remember)...

    - TVPs
    - Shocks all round
    - 3 Shells
    - 2 Sets of tyres
    - New exhaust (And kind of again I suppose :rolleyes: )
    - C'Hubs
    - Lower & Upper arm replacements
    - Several servos
    - A couple of fuel tanks
    - 3 glow plugs
    - 1 OWB
    - RotoStart/Now pullstart
    - Probably around 13 arial straws (looking at the receipt list)
    - Several packs of screws
    - Clutch shoe springs
    - Rear tie rods

    And the head... I think we're about there :D The vis here if you wanna see how I made this mess :D

    So in short... Yes; I suppose it will get expensive - But it's great fun ;)

    Plus I wanna be invited to the HPI christmas party for my loyal custom :D

    If you use thick fuel tubing as an ariel straw they don't get snapped.

    Lol... I stripped her down yesterday and found I've also knocked out my bevel gear in my diff's :rolleyes: - Haven't tried the fuel line idea; will give it a go when I've got her all rebuilt. Thanks for the tip :D

    So. Here's what happened. Me and my mate had just given the trucks a clean then decided to take em out for a drive about. we got 100 yards away from my house then we saw a set of steps with a nice long run up to clear the set of double steps. so my mate lined up the truck for the jump. set off at full throttle then!! Hit the steel post on the side of the steps at full throttle. oops!
