I'm not certain what to say. It looks like a huge piece of trash, but at the same time it looks pretty damn cool. I think I need to see it in person to decide.

Majority of the front fenders have to dissappear or do they clear at bump when turned?

Why didn't this video ever get posted in those threads after the event? Whoever made it put a ton of time into it.

haha that vid was posted, Paul (night crawler) made it. Great job on that.

And I think I need to trim the fenders a bit at full bump they are withing a 1/4" of hitting I'd bet a good bump and it would hit.

How bad did the rear truss break? Did you have to fix it on the trail or what?

Just flattened it out but I was worried about it tearing the now weakened tube so we found a local fab shop and had it braced up. Held up to some beatings the next day with no issues.

Very much it made everything I pointed it at other than the really tippy spot but that's due to the shitty rear springs and having no down travel.

I'll order some new rear springs and move the shocks down so I can get some better stability outta the rear when I get home.

Great weekend for sure.
