ok I ran my first metric caddy earlier this summer in a pretty short one heat go derby. it bent upfront and i was pretty disappointed, but it had cement walls and i got thrown into them pretty hard.
I continued to say in a couple different threads on here how i didn't think these cars were any good. And i would like to say I judged this car to quickly.
to get this car ready for the next show i didn't try and straighten the frame, i just plated it were it sat. I figured it was going to nose up in a couple hits anyway so what was the point. I got the rear off the ground and plated it best i could, and that's how i ran it..... and i ran it hard trying to junk it quick, and holy crap was i surprised. The front end was actually a tank, the radiator support and hood moved more than the frame actually did.
and to my surprise it's gunna run again. here is a link to my heat. and im sorry for cursing these cars so quickly, i WILL run one again.
yeah bolts stripped out of the quick release, so i was steering with the shaft, bad thing is it happened within the 1st min. and it took them until my car was basically junk before they dq'ed me lol. but it was my choice to keep going until they told me to stop.
