My old nitro Truck used to destroy anything it came in contact with and I hit myself with it once in the ankle at slower speeds so I can only imagine getting hit with one that was moving

+1. Had I been there, the truck would no longer be functioning or in one piece, and the little kid operating it would have shitty pants.

Re: some amusement for your day

I had an HPI gas car that went 45-50 mph and one night I drove it just outside it's range and it hauled ass WFO into this guys foot. Needless to say he was a bit mad and had a three broken toes. Thankfully he was a friend and didn't whoop my ass or break my car. I felt so bad. Catching it in the face....OUCH, that poor lady.

Yup that's why I felt like a jackass for not having one.

It looked to me like the place was used for other RC cars too. It looked like both people were not paying attention to what was around them. I would have been pissed if she screwed up my truck. I do what I can to stay out of other peoples way, but my truck is not quite either. You know when it is around and coming at you. Mutual screw up to me.
