I thought with 4 coats of WBP and the paint and thick clear would keep me safe. And i never thought it would ever go faster then 160. lesson learned. I have two more f-16s in the box and a squall. i just need decide if i want to try it again, the speed record that is. It gets a little expensive as you all know when you go balls out stupid for speed.

Eflux (Gary) the volocity cool 42 took it bad. The top of the motor can is bent and the shaft as you can imagine is bent over about 10-15 degrees. Can you get parts or should i just toss it in the trash with everything else. Well except for the back half of the alum housing you sold me. It looks like it might still be good. The "screw on" front half took and the impact.
Hey Gary,
Good seeing ya at the Jolt.
Your 16 was flying great, until............ It was one of the prettiest ones I've seen
Sorry to see that. Unfortunately, the shafts are not replaced on any inrunners motor that I know of. I wouldn't attempt to use any portion of the motor after that hit. You might want to contact Velocity RC to obtain a new motor. You can be sure that they will have the genuine article.
