Default Crashed cars

Do any of you have pics of your RC cars after an accident that you’d be willing to let me use on a website? I’m thinking a car with a wheel missing kind of thing. PM me if you can help.

This is from a crash during the last final heat of a Nationals' race. I was in luck that the suspension arm was still supported by the shock. It lacked some droop and understeered, but managed to defend my position for the last minute or 2. This DIY gullwing arm got me the best result of that day

If you need something morbid I cannot help out, and I hope this will never happen, either. If my story is too boring though, Google is your friend.

Thanks, but I need permission from the owner to use the pics, hence this thread.

Nope, I’m unaware of this.
