Hey fellas i didnt no were to post this so ill post it here for now,


Anyway when ive been driving my car lately i keep on getting rocks stuck under my drive shaft and it is starting to ware away, and they are also getting stuck under my suspension arm which is causing the chassis to scrap along the ground, is anyone else having this problem and how have you fixed it if you have?


here is some pics.

if you want to go jumping then by an offroader, onestly i find it a
stupid idea that anyone would send a touring car into big rocks, made
some really fine dirt for all those rally type cars, but even they cant
handel the jumps, eg, a tamiya TB-01 with the dust cover is good for
big flat dirt area's with no jumps, but come, TOURING CARS OVER HUGE
JUMPS WITH LIKE ONLY 10MM GROUND CLEARENCE.......INSANE!!!!!!!!

going back to the first topic, try to use your car somewhere else then Bender!!
