    Wow.

    Well yesterday my friend was driving my e-maxx (3906). He had never driven an RC before. I don't know what happened whether it was radio interference or he was just not thinking about what he was doing. Well the truck shot off at full throttle (I've never seen it go so fast!) First it slammed into my neighbours fence and then........straight under a Hyundai that happened to be in the way. We both ran across the road to the Hyundai. And I took a brave look under it to see my maxx absolutely squished under the car. We sat there staring at each other wondering what to do. I tried to grab it and pull it out but it wouldn't budge. I tried a broom, but it still did not move. Eventually we got my neighbour who brought a long beam of wood. He set it under the car and pushed on the end. I got under the car and grabbed it. We said thanks to the neighbour who walked off. The only damage done to my maxx was a broken front shock tower and a bent shock!
    Anyway just thought I would share, it was pretty scary and funny at the same time. well off to the hobby shop then!
    What are these "brakes" you speak of?

    I dont think it damaged the Hyundai.......it was one of those tiny excel hatchbacks. Yeah the neighbour wasnt too mad but he wasn't happy either lol.

    Whoa! All I got from attempting front flips was a broken rear bulk. So im guessing you broke the skid plate, bulkhead, chassis supports and the chassis right?

    How much time did it take to replace all those parts and how much did it cost?

    It was over 2 1/2 years ago.
