Damn, that's some shitty luck. Why do you think the TG unit bearing let go? It was brand new wasn't it?
From what others have told me, the spindle will stretch and then the nut back off.
Yes they were new with only a few trips.
Guys have had good luck rock crawling with them, but talking with the other racers, they don't hold up.

I have 3 for sale, along with 3 brake hats if anyone is interested.

Been a while since I posted an update on here.

In Jan 2018 I swapped out all the trail gear stuff for Spidertrax.


Took it out just before 2018 KOH and wadded it up at a high rate of speed.




Moved a little dirt during the flight.




What caused it to get out of shape. The only thing on the car that I did not weld myself.

Went to 2018 KOH rigless once again.
The rig sat on a trailer untouched until March of this year due to going through a divorce.
Here is how it looked when I brought her home.

The cutting off of the bent stuff happened in March the rest of the rebuild started in July.



Could not save the hood this time.


Bent C/O and Bypass


Steering res


Cutting it apart
