Full throttle taking a break from work. I was walking while I was driving and I didn't take into account that my view in relation to where I have successfully cleared the steel pole was not factored into the equasion. CLANG. FLIP. PIECES. JAW DROPPED! GRIN! COOL BEANS! "Tell me, someone took a picture of that?" "No pic, uncool beans."

Hey; El Pirata; how did that happen???? Its a easy fix I take it isnt it?
I replaced both front A-Arms with RPM Arms. Replaced the both drive lines with stainless. Replaced the front bulkheads with alum and the shock mounts with alum too.

Don't worry. Everything is fixed better than new right now, actually $250 better.

Exactly. I think after I finish upgrading this one I'll build a titanium t-maxx to take the severe punishment that I can dish out. That one will have more than the average person puts into their car when I am finished with it.
