I beat the living hell out of it 2 weeks ago at the Superlift park and it held up great. the yukons up front did a great as well. too bad I grenaded a hub :grinpimp:
hope ya get it fixed and back on the trail soon
I did have one issue with mine though. I had a mini-spool in it for a while and I was hopping it pretty hard. I heard a loud bang and it felt like it came from the rear. I thought I trashed a pinion gear. it ended up being the pin for the mini was split into 3 pieces. everything else held up.
