Arrma Kraton Destroyed

Post by dubbl-a » Fri Jul 22, 2016 5:39 pm

Slid on its roof into an intersection.

I made dome adjustments to the ESC and went out for a shake down run an quickly realized the brakes were set waaay to aggressive. Tapped the brake and rolled right onto the roof and slid 20ft and got clobbered by an SUV going about 45mph.

As devastated as i am, I'm just glad no one got hurt.

Haha, you know it!
I gave Andy a run for his money!

BTW: After the teardown, I was able to make a laundry list of parts to get this beast rolling again.
Luckily, all the electronics were spared. Not sure how they survived though...

Thanks Bloodclod, I totally forgot about this thread! I'm usually over on the Arrma Forum with my Arrma stuff... #-o

The Kraton rides again. Rebuilt and better than ever!
