If anyone else has one to destroy let me know. I have been looking for something cheap to use in place of lexan on a "stick". Sort of a tube frame body look only mounted with body post. I have also considered making one out of styrene.

I think its rediculous for anyone to come down on pyro for destroying that tuber. He bought it, he can do what he wants with it. This place is getting filled to the brim with whiny bitches.

It's up.


Didn't go the wuss route and do just the frame...ran over the entire RTR rig.

It's unharmed...not even a bent shock shaft.

Ralph is one tough S.O.B. I've seen the Ralph drop a couple times myself.

I just wish I'd been smart enough to plug in the Li-Po and turn on the ESC...then drive off at the end.
