  1. hi i have or had a Duratrax nitro StreetforceGP and now its wrecked and heres how. I had just put in a trx 2.5 motor and all the hop-up they had for the car so my friend and i decided that i should race my streetforce against his nitro 4-tec and i was burning his 4-tec but then all of a sudden my car started turning with out me doing any thing and when i pulled on the brakes it would stop and went full speed into the and was totaled. I mean both shock towers broke off, both servos snapped and basically the only thing left on the car thats any good is the motor and the chassis. ive tried lookn on tower hobbies 4 replacement parts but everything 4 my car is dicontinued and i dnt kno if any of the parts from the GP2 fit on my car. So i need help in many ways 1) Y did my car act like it did especially after i made sure all the batteries were good and new?
    2) were can i find parts 4 my streetforce?
    3) should i just trash the car and keep the motor?
    4) should i sell the car and try and save up for the StreetForce GP2?
    if u have any other suggestions as 2 wut i should do it would b greatly appreciated

    Sounds like you lost radio control ,Failsafe might be a good investment next time. Got a LHS close by ,if so see if they can help you salvage your wreck. Might be able to get parts at Tower Hobbies. Price parts out before deciding on dumping your car .Even tho your car looks like crap right now it might not cost you that much to fix.
  3. I 2nd that, I found a nice used Ofna failsafe for $15. It's very cheap insurance for expensive runaways. Check ebay for streetforce parts. Ebay usually has parts for older models and less-popular models. Keep the car even if it's just for parts. I suppose if you got this one fixed up, you could sell it and buy a GP2 but thats up to you.

    just take out your car and take the crank shaft out and then hose it down with sum loose up spray and then put the radio near the wall....that always works for me
