Just gotta tweek the skid back straight then put it back on, maybe add some more supports.

Got it out to the Sand Lake carnival where Rocksolid Performance put on a obstacle course. Decided I would run in the buggy class, probably a bad idea but hey, it's all about having fun right?

So after waiting all day I finally got my chance to run, take off, doing good then I took a turn a little too soon caught a rut wrong and had to stop and back up to straighten out, took off from there and got to the wall where the hole in front of it was full of water, I splashed thru it and I think the truck took a big drink of water and stalled. I finally got it started and took back off with time to make up, went good on the second lap until I jumped into that same hole a little too far to the right... This time I rolled up on my passenger side and stalled it. People came and flopped me back over and iI took off again. But I was done, I couldn't steer. I ended up shearing off the sector shaft at the steering box.

All in all, I got third out of 3 but I also won the $100 wow prize lol. All is good, now I just have some stuff to fix. Here's the pics I have.
Loaded and ready



Racing



Aftermath




Not sure what's going on with my toe.... Last I checked tie rods don't grow, but somehow my toe is way out, I don't see anything wrong yet.

I also bent my leaf spring


I blame it on my new sticker

Yeah, that's the plan James. I will do it after August 10 as long as nothing serious is broke. Hope to put my backup steering box on and just run it.

Gotta figure out what's going on with my front axle. Looks like the drivers side is messed up. I put a new box on and with the pitman centered the drivers is toed way out. Gonna pull it apart, but I don'tsee anything wrong with it. No play in the knuckle/king pins either.

Can a knuckle bend? Does it happen?

Passenger side square ish



Driverside



Any ideas?

The ear of the knuckle the tie rod attaches can bend.
