That’s what happens when the ramp does not fulfill any safety standards at all…

Had a great great session yesterday. First run with the new setup of REV-O-RANGE 2.0 it it runs smoothly! Did a lot of jumps – stay tuned for the all new video coming later this week!

After the 6th tank I had to quit because of the after-effect of a 10-feet-high jump: the rear left rocker just broke in pieces!

Last week I somehow felt it would be a good idea to try some very high-speed runs on a rather new small road at a friend’s house. All in all the “course” was about 150 meters long. In the middle of the course I had to go into drifting to get the right hand corner to the second 75 meters or so. Well – already in second gear at full speed my Rev-o-range slipped and went off to the outer side of the road just perfectly timed to hit a steel lantern at full speed with its right front. Well……….. A-Arms, broken; pushrod, broken; toe-link, bent; pivot-balls, popped; driveshaft, adieu; Not too much carnage though.

After that I decided to do a complete rebuild – after all I had various sessions in the infamous Sandy Dunes and some really really REALLY hard bashing’ action the weeks before, so the car was quite challenged so far. I found out that almost all of the various parts were really badly scarred but nevertheless nothing was really so worn that I could not use it again. I decided to put some of the tuning parts I had in stock into the newly rebuilt Rev-o-range. I am still waiting for the new driveshafts, so that’s what it looks just like now:

Stay tuned for more pics of the progress and of course the final build REV-O-RANGE 2.0! 🙂
