When I bought it used, the stock tires where pretty worn down. Everyday I drove it with ripped tires. I drove it until the tires ripped right off the rim lol. Another story is, I let my dad drive (BIG MISTAKE) so as he was driving around getting more confident, he floors it, catches 6-7 feet of air, lands on front right wheel, so it goes into a major cartwheel, like I mean 12-15 times, goes off the school field and into the parking lot BAM! right into those blocks infront when you park your car. I was flipping because I just got it and I didnt know mufflers can fly that high and dogbones can bend like a V. No damage was done, muffler fell off and the dogbone bent but was bent back with a machine. Now the only thing I do when I bash, always bring a camera with me, and never let my dad drive lol.

I was out at Square One in Mississauga and Tracer borrowed my TG-10 to run while I ran my Savage. A few minutes later I see my TG-10 go full tilt across the parking lot and I'm thinking "what the hell's he doing?" when it hits a curb, flys into the air and takes off again. I'm about to yell at him when it launches off another curb and continues to ping-pong around in the lot. Finally, it lands upside down after I don't know how many impacts and we kill the engine. Dead receiver pack was the cause. Not a single broken part. Don't know how.

To this day, Tracer won't borrow or run a car from anyone.
Any landing you can drive away from, is a good landing

About 5 or 6 years ago I had a Nitro 4-tec and the battery connector came loose (wasn't running a THS). I was at the parking lot at Humber college (lakeshore campus) and soon after I started it, it just took of and ran WOT right into the curb at the other side of the parking lot (ouch)! The car was a total write-off (except for the engine and rear suspension). The front end of the car hit the curb so hard that the rear shock shaft snapped in half!!!!

I guess you live and learn
