I rode it for a couple minutes in rush hour traffic and was overwhelmed by how many cars where around me lololol, it’s a definitely a different feel with the trigger being different in a way that hard to pinpoint. I have a trigger finger and kinda found myself giving it to much throttle but it’s pretty smooth so far no cutouts or funny business in comparison to the old receiver :slight_smile:

Holy shit! Did you hit something? Ive never seen that before!!!

Didn’t hit anything it had a malfunction and hit the throttle all the way and it very violently was doing donuts and I couldn’t stop it. So I’m pretty nervous riding it now :grimacing: but it’s part of the risk we all take riding these boards. No idea what caused it.

Did the rods break or just come undone?

They broke

Inspecting them it looks like they bent very far before breaking.

The thinking is after full pin losing the rider, it went thrashing about taking shock loads while doing donuts and bouncing around at full pin. this torqued the main heim lose which allowed for increased rotation of the whole truck combined with more thrashing that eventually tweaked the radius rods.

So checking the jam nut from time to time isn’t a bad idea :face_with_peeking_eye:
