    what happens when you hit a concrete staircase at full speed on 3s

    Dont think ive ever done this much damage to my slash and these things are pretty durable.. lost control of it and slid into a concrete staircase full speed on 3s Time to wrench on it again i guess.. Anyone else ever seen anything like this?

    Strangely...or, maybe not so strangely...enough, I believe it. Two weeks ago, I did something similar with, and to, my Rusty 4x4 while on 3S. Wish I had it on video, because the serial acrobatic was simply amazing. Repairs, for both of our vehicles, will take a little while, and be costly.

    looks like we're in the same boat.. that wreck was pretty gnarly and the damage isn't as bad as i thought it was gonna be, i bent both of the front steering links/ toe adjustment turnbuckles, 2 of the shocks (one was in the rear surprisingly) and completely destroyed the front differential casing. I'm hoping there's no more damage left that i didn't notice earlier haha now i just gotta wait for my parts!

    At least you've already assessed your damage. I was visiting family in Vegas, just packed that one up after the accident, pulled out the (brand new) Losi Baja Rey, and went back to having fun. I haven't taken the Rusty out of its carrying case since. Just returned to the SF Bay Area yesterday. Will try to assess damage before the end of the weekend, as I'm working on Bala Rey upgrades tomorrow, and my new ProBoat SonicWake 36 should be delivered on Thursday.

    WOW!!! I was running about 40mph once and got pulled into the drainage hole of a driveway. Caught the left front tire and ripped the complete side off, Did not break the bulkhead like yours, but it was pretty impressive. Always wish tere was video during times like this.

    Glad you have parts and backup toys, always makes it a little easier.

    I'm my case, "backups" yes...several, actually, although I had only brought one (Capra Class 3 comp rig) with me, plus I purchased the Baja Rey the day after seeing in Vegas...but, "spare parts", no, especially not new A-arms (which are completely destroyed), which is the only part I know needs to be replaced. Haven't even checked, yet, to determine other damage.

    I remember once, I was trying to drive in between two concrete pillars. I missed and hit one of them. Not even the RPM shock tower could handle it:

    That's crazy that it broke like that, those rpm parts are pretty hard to break. I'm still waiting on a couple parts to get mine back up and running hahaha
