    Well after just posting pictures of My FG Monster Truck you would think the next thing would be pictures of my new pipe or alloy parts or painted body. Well I didn't get a chance to do any of these before I busted my FG truck.

    Total damage isn't all that bad - broken upper rear a-arms and a rear shock tower. The rear upper arms I have already in alloy just need to install them, the shock tower is on order.

    Here is what my back tire landed on... on the blade of this:

    As much as it is painful to break things, it's funny how those are the first threads everyone will look at....

    I admit it, I love to see damage photos :D

    Hey could be worse you could of tanked out the new alloy a arms.:) Just looking for a bright side. At least those parts are cheap. Make sure if it was a big hit to check the motor mesh just in case the motor shifted. Oh ya, and next time don't blink while driving by the real big stuff. J/K.:blink:

    Its amazing how we can hit the big stationary object and can avoid the little moving ones.

    See what happens when you play with Monkey and Jet LOL

    It sucks that you broke your new ride but broken parts usually mean you had fun!

    It's sitting on the table trying to get fitted with DDM Dominator pipe, but isn't going so well.

    For the record, I had NOTHING to do with Wood hitting that 'dozer! He was showing off for some kids that came from nowhere!

    That thing is AWESOME, though! Thanks for coming to the races, Wood!
