    Holy crap spennie. Gotta give it credit though, thats not really much damage for being hit by a car. Cartwheels arent healthy either, fun to watch though! Lol

    Heres what I did yesterday, first time since new I really got to let her fly!

    Hopefully this works, never used pictures here... But this dirt bike jump was probably 6 feet to the top platform, the truck was easily 3 times that high a few times... after about 6 jumps, landed nose down... Broke the A arm....

    Ouch, I bent one of the shock gaurd screws(had a socket head instead of button head) and did my steering servo in the rest of the way. At least stock a-arms are cheap!

    Ahh, thats some damage.. haven't done that much to mine yet. But yeah, the stock ones are and RPMs are reasonably priced too, so I think Ill be going RPM. Hopefully the LHS has em in stock and I can try to break something else tomorrow evening!

    Does the rpm arms have the screw hole for the shock guards?

    Getting pretty annoyed by drive shaft pins.
    After replacing the pins and bearings at the (Tekno) front end, the rear (MIP) end decided to play up. Suddenly only front wheel drive and the car spitting out a MIP half shaft. Broken pin. Probably normal wear, but still annoying.

    They do, but I just put RPM arms on my pede... and I dont like the way they fit on the arm.. They are molded to fit the square sharp edges of the stock arms.. and RPMs are a lot thinner and round...

    That sucks

    Let's see. I've been away from my truck for a week been on vacation. Got back today threw a battery in pulled my ramp out and away I went. Hit the mail box full speed in air bounced right off and kept going. Threw another battery in hit road sign of course in the air. Same results. Only thing I broke was well body has a crack in it I must say these aluminum shock towers are taking a beating and holding real good. For how thin they are

    Without. They worked fine on the back but the shocks are shorter in the front

    Well I managed to break this somehow. But was able to solder it back on whoop whoop

    Now it's time to put it back together and see if it's able to still turn with resistance. And beated my body more in process.

    Ran the snot out of my p4de at a local gravel pit with some crawling buddies. Put 3 batteries (one 3s and two 2s),thru it in about 1.5 hours. Max temp was 171 degrees. Also landed my first back flip. I have never tried one before being that. I usually try to be easy on my RC stuff, but there was a perfect jump for flips. My buddy with an EXO was doing triple back flips on 4s. My P4de was the only truck that didn't break at some point in the evening. There was and E-maxx, HPI Savage Flux and the EXO. It held up really well with all the jumping I did and launching off 8-10 dirt walls. Much fun was had by all, and everyone was impressed on the P4de performance, especially me. NOTHING BROKE! (i didn't say that out-loud)

    hi
    has your pede been widened or lowered? 17mm?
    i love it

    Edit:
    Fiddled around a bit in front of the house. The Trenchers balloon way less than on Desperado wheels, that is an advantage. That also means the grip is immense. With my other wheel set it has good grip on pavement too, but with those a can manage to get it in a drift. With the Trenchers that is quite impossible.

    Maximizers held up great, until I did a backflip where a rear tire partly popped out. I checked the wheel and found out that was the one I was not sure of if it was tightened enough. The tire is still in one piece, so that is an easy fix.
    On the other weels the tires are in the same place where I put them.

    So far pretty happy.

    I don't think so but the rims have a wide offset.

    The Maximizers have a larger offset than the stock wheels. Besides that I am using FLM 17mm adapters which make it slightly wider too.
    I shortened the body posts. I'm not sure anymore if I had the XO-1 shocks at the time that this photo was taken, but that made it a little lower too.
