my ramp, not my rig. Still plenty of ramp left there for my toyota.

This should have been a warning to me, his rig kept tipping over all weekend on the trail. Next time I'll try and distract him with the shiny chrome pieces in my scrap metal pile and head for the trail way ahead of him <IMG SRC="smilies/clown.gif" border="0">

Question

Scott,

I noticed dude appears to have a rear 1/4 elliptic set-up. Is there something wrong with it, or is the problem in the front being too stiff?
(I meant no disrespect when I asked if that was your rig on it's side BTW)

ok this is my rig. this is what happened. the rear qtr eliptical is making the tire hit the frame. this is why it rolled.the tire goes under the frame and and grabes the frame rail and binds. also the front springs are a little stiff compared to the rear. he failed to show you the really cool pics. if he would be so cool please post the cool photos "beech" <IMG SRC="smilies/flipoff.gif" border="0"> he also failed to tell you how the sammy ramped more that the yota. so show the pics.

yes, outramped the yota. However, I also failed to tell you you'll be talking to my lawyer about back strain incurred by having to push that thing back onto it's wheels 500 times last weekend, not to mention the crater that POS left in my parking lot <IMG SRC="smilies/thefinger.gif" border="0">

I don't know I think it's a toss up? You need to let go of the Runna so we can start "Project Sexy Goat". <IMG SRC="smilies/bender.gif" border="0">

The shorter the lower control arms, the more droop/steer you will get. The longer, the less.... <IMG SRC="smilies/smile.gif" border="0">
