i talked to him the other day and i know the front shocks took a beating. Possibly a broken shock shaft??? He's got new parts on order from rush and said he was looking at a 3 week eta.

Anyone making tires/wheels for this buggy? I have one on order, will be here in a week or so. I wanted to put on a more aggressive rear tire, like a chevron pattern or something. Something that would work all around in grass, loamy dirt, sand, street (and not break the nubbies off, I hate when I break the nubbies). Any thoughts?
