Progress has been a little slow on developing more track terrain, so here is a quick video I made of my Losi Micro Desert Truck going over some cardboard jumps on my track. You can see how the truck handles in slow motion.
Things break on RC cars and Micro RC cars are no different to their bigger brothers despite their lower speeds and lighter weight (meaning less energy to deal with when hitting something).
