I still like that jeep. I would say that picture was taken down the road a couple miles from here.

Now it's clear why it has so much torque steer.

I think the ROPS on a zero turn lawn mower is built better than that "cage". Only a lawnmower wont go much over 10mph and weighs 1/4 of that, but it will go in a straight line!

I see the problem. It needs shorter 4 links and a more flexible chassis.

Chassis flex > suspension flex.

It's the new hotness, like how semi big rig tractors do.

Is that really the "engineered" setup everyone's been defending as the king of awesomeness or was that some other yellow jeep with more engine than the owner could handle?

Man you guys talk a lot of shit. The jeep may not be the best engineered or have the safest cage. It does however pass tech at the sand drags and has held the pro truck class title. If any of you actually ran the class you would probobly shut the fukc up because this jeep would school you.

...

How fast do these things go?

If that cage "passes tech" then the officials are just as fawktarded as the owner of this rig.

If that passes tech the class is as much of a joke as that chassis.
