    now during the teardown several other bits of carnage showed themselves:


    part of the servo damage was from a few days ago




    in addition 2 screws fell out of the rear shock tower, pinion slipped on the motor towards the motor can, and several screws backed out some.

    yeah it was insane. and fun. had some busted contet barrier pieces aimed likema ramp. only used that twice. all the carnage started with a blown rear tire. if i had stopped there i would have been fine. but it isnt in my nature to stop. well got new parts ordered.

    Malibu do you ever run your truck and not break it? Honesty I dont get all the praise for messing up a truck. It is easy to run them hard and break them the trick is to run it hard and not destroy it

    well when i break the way i did i dont mind. i have some good memories of today. i enjoy the carnage cause it shows the truck gets used and enjoyed. and i love working on vehicles. so when i break it gives me a reason to work on them.

    yeah unlike me you get use of what breaks me I go of a jump land it on one wheel at 10mph and like a half foot of air in the first 2min of the bash and break a rear bearing carrier ending the fun cause i didn't have a spare
    My car learned how to fly then forgot the landing

    Lol, dad, I think it is kind of along the lines of the mentallity of when some guy gets hurt on a motorcycle, fourwheeler, whatever-it-be. He is in the hospital with a broken leg, and all his buddys are patting his back saying, "dude, sweet!" There is just something about breaking stuff, be it cars or bones or what have you, that is awesome (and appluadable).

    If you say so, but I maintain the guy who pulls off the same stunt but does not break his bones and is not in the hospital but kicking back relaxing is the one who should be patted on the back. Seriously I could hand my remote to anyone and end up with a smashed up truck.
