    Watch out for rain gutters

    I went to a friends house and wanted to show off the slash with two batteries in series. I knew the steering servo was acting up but then I lost control of the car for some reason and it drove itself right into the rain water gutter on the street. I think it was about 10 feet down and only way to get to it was to remove the man hole cover and drop a ladder down to get it. My wife was flipping out thinking it was gone and I was a little concerned myself. There was only about an inch of water that it was sitting in. Seemed to servive the drop undamaged.

    You sure showed off.
    Showed off how well rc's find the one spot out of all the surroundings that could make things worse. Usually its a mailbox stake, this time a raingutter.
    I can just picture it happening... Glad it turnd out good for you.

    Yes they do find the one spot that gets us into the most trouble. I nailed my wife's rear tire (only car in on the entire street) with my 1/5 scale Rampage and tore the entire left front end off. Trashed her wheel cover as well. About a $100 mistake!
