    Her + My E-Revo 2.0 @ Full Throttle + Curb = $120+ Fourth of July

    My fourth of July was going great until I asked someone to hold my transmitter...



    If I had time to edit the video more I would have just blurred her out, but I had to leave for work so I ran out of time. I was so upset, mainly at myself for giving her the transmitter, that I did not even look to see what the full damage was. I do not want to know what I need to repair until I have time and money to fix it.

    That was disappointing... I was expecting a full tilt smack into a curb, not a 3 foot run up into a curb.

    I hit a tree, mid flight at near WOT with my ERBEv1. Sadly, my camera was so out of whack that you could barely tell there was a truck... or a tree. It tops out at 45mph running 4S. Shattered my front bulkhead, T-Bone bumper/skid plate, popped the end of the motor out of the HPP motor brace and busted the front body mount/tower. Would hate to think what another 10mph into concrete would look like!

    You running 6S I assume?

    Smacked stuff pretty good with my savage and it seems to slough it off better.
    Expert rigging at it's best!

    Yeah I dunno man, I think I would have laughed my keester off then showed her how to jump a curb like a man. Let us know of any damage, I can't imagine it's too extreme. I bet just the bumper, time for an RPM one I guess. Keep having fun!

    it's alright son, I'll fix it when you break it.

    I have hit trees square much faster than that. Let us know what actually broke. Mine saw no damage other than a couple scratches on the bumper.

    olds - that was an awesome jump. The savage seems to always flight straight and level through the air!

    I hit a car parked in the street with my 5.9 powered savage at full tilt (it had actually made the shift into 3rd and approaching max engine speed) and the only damage was a fractured wheel nut which caused the wheel to come off. 5 minute fix and back at it.
    I have an RC problem...

    never hand a live remote to someone who is inexperienced. If you do and something bad happens, don't blame that person. You own that decision and the consequences 100%. Hopefully the OP apologized to that person.

    That was on 6S. I won't run anything less in the E-Revo.

    I ended buying a Slash 4x4 Platinum this week so she has something to wreck all she wants lol. I'll just drive my X-Maxx while I save up money for new E-Revo 2.0 batteries.

    I think you are a lucky guy to have a girl that is willing to hang out with you while you pursue your 'little boy inside the man' hobbies. Dont treat that woman bad! Now go buy her a nice dinner a apologize!

    I take care of her. She's done plenty of shopping since that wreck LOL! I will start taking the car apart next week to see how much damage was done.

    Not yet. I looked at it the other day but was not able to figure it out in the time I had. I have spent all of my free time working on my XO-1 and 4-Tec 2.0. I am trying to get those dialed in before the cold weather hits. I really wanted to take the E-Revo bashing with my friend in a couple of weeks but I am not sure if I will be able to look at it before then.

    I want my unbroken E-Revo 2.0 back. Looks like neither of us are getting our wishes!

    I was not able to take it with me on the road so it will be awhile before I am able to spend time taking it apart

    Still have not had time. I did notice the servos are not aligned. I hope to get to that truck soon - it has been in another state so I have not had a chance to look at it.

    Same car, one video shot before the other. The youtube description or comments have explanations if I recall correctly.
