Newbie saying hi, and when RC meets toolbox!

Newbie here - been into the hobby for a few months now (see website in my
..sig for my RC).

Thought i'd share the calamity that was our last outing with the RC's We
were messing with our RC's in B&Q car park, K&N fell off my mates and
jammed the throttle servo open. 50mph+ - missed the front, 500, splitter
of my other mates 51 reg Corsa by inches, hit a decent plastic toolbox that
was FULL of little bits.

The RC was fine Flipped into a hedge, was quicky cut out. Spares/tools
EVERYWHERE - was pretty funny once we'd picked them all up

Best you'd get back into B&Q and get another one of those toolboxes
then...at least you were in the right place.
And is that the PC version of Sonic I see hidden away there LOL....!!!

except www.gmmodels.co.uk ? It wasn't actually my car that hit the toolbox
it was my mates Sinyth AX5
