    Aaarrrrrrggggggg Im So Mad!!!

    The bulkheads have done it again I was riving today and testing out my new wheely bar when these kids wouldnt stop chasing my truck. I dont know what their dumb parents were doing because they always let their kids do this. Then I hear a loud sound and i look over and i see my maxx cartwheel like 5 times, hit a tree, then dig the rear bumper into the ground then complete stops. I nearly died in shock. I run over to find that the bulkheads have been ripped off the chassis with the screws still in the chassis. I am so mad because the weather man may have been right about the snow thats supposed to be coming tommorow. NOW I CANT PLAY!
    This is so rediculous...

    I don't like it when kids chase my truck either. To see a dog chase it is really fun though.

    my dog always tries to bite it but its really funny and the kids on my street always think i can avoid them at 30mph they just jump out in front of it... stupid kids. that sucks though. im not sure about those bulks havent heard much about them, but the flm ones arent much more and they have the warantee.. could save you some money in the future.

    I had that same problem with the kids on my street untill I got the MMM/2200 and a couple of 2s lipos. I was out in the back alley and one of them jump in front of it and it hit him at almost full throttle. Took his feet out and he face planted on the grass, was funny

    Yea, I don't have a problem with kids anymore. My dog on the other hand has torn more tires and put more holes in the body than I ever could.

    that seems to be the big flaw in the e-maxx. i've broken multiple bulkheads, skids and numerous shocktowers.

    this last crash i broke everything i just mentioned and the chassis too.
    So i said enough was enough and i went for a gorillamaxx and went aluminum on everything else.

    it's 100 times more durable now. i firmly believe i would have spent the same amount of money on replacement chassis and bulkheads eventually.

    UUUUUUGGGGGG...
    I just hope the flm skids and bulkheads get here before the snow melts. We got some flurries here in staten island (were I live) and in manhaten when i saw Madea goes to jail. I was thinking "Aw...why does the universe always do this to me?"
