Damage caused by poor driving:
  1. Completely smashed/crushed passenger door. May need to saw it off.
  2. 8 inch crease along hood and cowl on driver side.
  3. Bend control arm.
  4. Bend cage tube above passenger (original factory tubing).
  5. Ripped shovel and axe completly off of stinger.
  6. Smashed passenger slider tube flat in two places.
  7. Lost rear spring when I hopped her 3 feet sideways on Helicopter pad.

Really not bad for the first time out with everything done to it hours before the run. Good job guys and the old driver didn't do so bad ever.

I'm surprised that's all you did. When are you going to learn how to drive? :tonka:

Finished pics. Really happy with the way it turned out, I would like to change the rear suspension geometry a little and fix some other small things in a few weeks here. But we are all pretty happy with the performance.

It is being used to suck the front end down. It helps to lower the COG on hill climbs where the front wants to unload.

Yeah! What he said. But I have seen the pros do that too and it did work. I was having a lot of trouble getting up Guardrail until they did that. Then I finally made it unassisted. Of course that was a whole 20 minutes into driving the new build so I was very unfamiliar with it also.
