I remember someone saying that Tyco had some issues with white indy plastic.
Something to the effect of the mold not being cleaned out from the solvent used to flush them, it would contaminate the plastic and over time it would get extremely brittle.
Sun would have had nothing to do with it if this was the case.
I had a Malboro Indy break very easy once but not into 50 pieces.
Thanks,
Keith

Ugh. Sorry buddy, that really sucks. Ive never seen such a thing.

But if its any consolation, I went to go see G.W.A.R. friday, and the bartender got my girlfriend completely schnockered. I mean its fine to load up my drinks, Im 6'1" and 250 lbs, she's 5'4" and 120. She had 2 rum and cokes that were a bit stiff, the 3rd had her off in the corner miserable by the 3rd song. I missed the show to take her downstairs while the rest of my friends were getting to see them beheading Obama! [email protected]#$!!!!

Tyco grenade...

Sorry about your loss...

I had something like that happen to me nearly the exact same. I even kept the body in pieces to prove it in case I ever told someone the story.

It was a prototype "test shot" narrow chassis 80s corvette (stingray style).
It is off-white and while trying to snap it on, it blew up like a grenade. I stood there with 8 to 10 pieces in my hand and a couple on the floor. I couldn't help but laugh. I have never seen anything like that happen. Well- until today.

Aaaaaaaahahahahaha -- This happened to a friend of mine too. He was snapping it onto the chassis when it blew apart in about 5 pieces. Same exact body.

Sorry for you loss. If you want, box up the bits & pieces and send them to me. I'll put them behind the crash wall at Turn 2 on my big road course -- The turn gets everyone eventually. :)
