Hey all,



I was havign some drag races against a traxxs nitro rustler in the
local shopping centre car park. After a couple of neck an neck runs we
are making our return pass, back towards us and the pecker who was
controling the rustler decided to drive it into my foot at full speed.
Im glad he got me and not the swarm of school kids that was there
watching !!





as you can imagine i wasnt very excited. The nitro rustler lost a wheel
and bent the chassis and also did something to the shock tower or
something. I didnt hang around to find out !

Did you at least get an apology or did they just grab their RC and bolt? Makes me think that safety boots may be required for this hobby.



So the obvious question to ask is...


"Who was winning at the time?"

well all savage owners would be happy to know that the .15 os powerd
rustler with cvec pipe was no faster or slower than the savage,
he had me off the line but within 2 meters the ol sav was hot on his
heels. if the car park was any longer i would have actually beaten him
! also if it was any longer id have ended up with more than a sore foot
!

LOL... I take it from that then that he was winning, well there goes my theory I was going to suggest about WHY he ran into your foot. Of course it could be that he was auditioning for a part in the sequel to the movie "Changing lanes".

Stupidest thing someone's done is to ride a motorbike without any shoes going down a windy mountain road and the Brakes Fail...

steel cap boots are your friend. especially if you marshal 1/8th off road buggy

yep, and a pair of thick leather gardening gloves.





Ppl used to laugh when I go out to marshal wearing gloves... I laugh back at them when they come in with burns from hot motors.
