Default First time at skate board park

So just came back from the skate board park and here is what I broke:

-bent hinge pins - kinda expected
-wire connections to the power switch and esc both snapped off with is something I have never seen of either of my MT trucks
-one of the plastic arms holding the esc broke off
-tires started to pop out of the beadlock wheels

Overall this is not too bad for a completely stock truck. I expected worse. The shock shafts were not bend and the plastic chassis was not damaged. But I'm not use to the slow speed given I was just using 2s. I'm used to 4s on my other trucks.

I'm gonna solder the wires back together, get new and stronger hinge pins, change the shock oil to 50, order some tbone bumpers, buy a 3s battery.

I did notice that the truck is front heavy so usually lands hard on the front end. Hopefully a tbone bumper will give it a little more protection.

But I do think this truck is more suited to the dirt and rocks then pavement and definately need 3s for more speed and fun. 2s is just slow
