One of the reasons I bought a Short Course (SC) truck was because they’re so durable: bumpers on all sides and a large body to spread out any impacts. However, as I learned at Universal Raceways yesterday… after screwing up a jump for about the 20th time… they can still be broken.
You can only land the truck on it’s back bumper on concrete so many times before something has to give. A new chassis is only a $21 part: the real pain is moving all the rest of the bits over. Bah!
