Here's a (really poor quality) video of a recent bash session at a skate park. Bear in mind that I'm driving one handed while trying to aim the camera. We were being relatively careful, but I think this is more than people general expect an RC to do. At the end of the night, my son's truck had eaten the spur gear ($3 part) and that was it. His slipper clutch was probably too tight or the motor slipped in the mount when it landed on its roof and threw off the pinion/spur mesh.

Sweet video ! Those Traxxas 1/16th platforms are tough ! I have had my fair share of those !

Keep the throttle pinned open and you would of had some really cool backflips instead of landing on your top.
