    Unhappy I just crashed my Ferrari into my Astra! Gutted

    Well, just had a quick go of the ferrari, crashed it straight into my astra!






    The throttle has been sticking a bit, but today, put it on the floor, started going, released throttle and it kept going, up the drive and straight into the back wheel of my astra!

    Just glad i managed to steer it clear of the gate and the load of bricks!

    Is it one of those ACME nitro cars off of ebay m8?

    Looks nasty, but nothing that cant be fixed me old mucka.....lesson to be learnt dont use something remote controlled if theres anything dodgy about a servo.

    Seen glitchy servo's do more damage than whats happened to the rc car.
    Smashed into peoples legs when throttles stuck open.
    Luckily there was only cuts and bruises.....but still not a pleasent thing.

    Hope you get it fixed m8 and get ya self driving again

    Yeah it is from ebay (Company called nitrotek) got it about 6 months ago, havent used it in about 2 months, and it was sticking back then (Luckily then i just went onto the grass and stopped! )

    I'm glad i only crashed it into my car tyre, and not some1's leg like you say, they're not slow things, i can see that doing damage to someone's legs if it hit 'em!



    With the bits that are broken, u can order all the bits and engines and everything direct from the website, hopefully shouldn't cost too much......
