So apparently I hit the track bar mount with fitting on the steering ram last race. Unfortunately I never noticed it until I loaded it on the trailer last night. It was tight and only had a tiny leak so I tried to race it today anyway. Well I hit it again pretty early in my first lap and it began puking fluid, lost steering part way through lap 2 and dnf'do.

This truck just isn't built for going fast. I am gonna keep at it though.

Getting through the bigger rocks near the start on the gas in high range was a good confidence boost.
