Woops!

Well, since I have my clod running now. I thought I would have a little fun with it. HEHE Anyway, I took it out to the little foot hills where I go wheeling with my big truck and there is a fire break cut through a small hill, looks like this from end \_/ and it's about 9 feet wide at the top. I made a little burm at the top of one side and attempted to jump it. Well, I got full speed and cleared and landed beautifully but, I guess on landing I lost the steering servo and went off the 16 foot cliff on the other side[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]. Well, the rear axle didn't survive. But, I had extra tubes so it's all fixed already but heres what it looked like:


This is what it looked like before:
