the first victim

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
well I am sad to say I am the first victim of the Southern Ontario Indoor Offroad Championship.
I went to practace day with my T-maxx, and got tboned and it snapped me in half, busted the bulkheads and the bottom plate.
No way to fix it intime for the next day, but they were great and gave me back my entry fee.
I told them that I hope they have another one my son and I will be back with better trucks!!!
lots of great drivers the track is insane, some BIG air had by all(exept me), some other minor breaks a wheel off here and there.
over all a great place to race, lots of turns lots of air.
going back tomorrow to watch and learn, lol.

not sure what I will be running at sammys this year.

Bottom plate? Do you mean the skid plate that goes from the frame rails to the bulkheads. The chassis is aluminum on those and real tough to damage. I put in the aluminum bulkheads and haven't busted since. Haven't even killed a skid plate since.

That sounds great Ron, I need the rear bulk head and skid plate.
looks like they may have been cracked to start with, I think thats why it broke so easy.
