R/C car fun

Ever wonder what happens when a Traxxax Tmax uses a Nitro sport as a jump ramp? Well I found out and here are the results.

Here is the front end being held together with 5 zip ties and some epoxy.

This is with the zip ties removed.

Here are the parts that were broken. The front shock tower, the left front shock, the steering servo and one of the tie rods was bent.

The collision pulled one of the screws out of the steering servo.

In the end I'm going to have to replace about $20 worth of parts and I'm lucky that I have another servo around. It was quite a sight to see though. My nitro sport and Paul's T-maxx hit head on and his T-maxx got about 2 feet of air off of my car. Needless to say his came out as the winner.
