    ok, so i haven't ran my buggy in like 2 mths. i took it out side, started it, pulled it up to a pole so i could back away and make sure the remote and everything worked. it seemed fine so i took it out to the parking lot, and let it go it was running really well, and wanted to see how fast i could get it up to. i made a few passes, and on the 3rd pass, i went to turn around and nothing happened. i hit someones back tire going around 50mph. i cringed, then went to inspect the damage. buggy is totally #$%^ed lookes more like a horse shoe now it even bent the driveshaft, and broke the alum shock tower in half. the funny thing is that the car i hit now has a flat. the bolt on the left front shock tower punctured the tire. i could hear t leaking. oh well. should have got a fail safe.

    ya I would have to say mine is pretty big like that and it is a push also! What sucks even more is rakeing it all THAT TAKES ABOUT 6 HOURS AT LEAST to rack and then move. He take the leaves and put them in a bed of a pick up on top of a tarp and then 1 over the top of the leaves, a big pickup truck! He took us 29 loads of leaves to do it this past fall, and im not kidding I remeber the hole d@mn thing!

    When I got my first buggy about 8 years ago I was testing it out in the cul-de-sac and for some reason the radio cut out and it crushed into the curb right in front of me at about 45mph. Poor buggy :( I was a sad and broke kid for quite a while after that.
