Really sick of the air issues. Hopefully by getting rid of the powder coat inside the rims, and gluing the SHIT outta them will make it more reliable.

Tires held air all weekend, combination of grinding rims down and cutting tires are attributed to this

Ugh went to put in my new rock solid shafts today found a crap load of play in the passenger knuckle... The spring in the king pin is real weak, but I had a spare high steer arm that is springless swapped it out just about to button it up now.
