If your going to wheel your rig this is something you should learn to do. See if a friend could help you the first time they are not hard to do. You will be doing them again in your life. Trust Me.

Well both u-joints (one 5-760x and one Alloy) held at SnoFari. I will continue to run this setup until one breaks, hopefully giving a some what side by side comparison (as there is no way each u-joint can see the same amount of stress).

Well the Chili Run at the Mounds confirmed that Alloy 1150's are garbage. I was running one Spicer 5-760 and one Alloy in a side by side comparison. The Spicer seems to be fine the Alloy on the other hand.....

Just a medium sized iced up hill in the back side of the park. I was being hard on it but not hard enough to warrant breaking IMO. Snocross2xtremes should have it on video.
