    Hopefully the bulkhead has not bent on you, I managed to bend two FLM bulkhead in the days on a 2wd pede, and they never funtioned the same ever since, the hinge pins would bind, loosing the functionality of the arms.
    Thanks..

    The servo horn is aluminum "Racing Edge" I guess the integy aluminum isn't that weak if the chassis tore apart first...

    Good point
    If you had rpm arms or stock arms chances are the arms would be the only thing that broke. Looks like you hit with the wheel and there was no give to anything so all that aluminum just went with the force and ripped everything. Gotta love those objects jumping out of no where and ruining a fun day. I've had my fair share of them lol

    Mario. Thanks for the reply. Another question is about your shock springs. Do you run the white springs on all 4 shocks? Im running grey and have to turn them down 3/4 of the way to set the pre load. Id like stiffer springs

    I run the grey ones.Front is about 1/2 way and the back is less than half.I only did the one run and you saw the results.The preload seems OK and I can drop the truck about 4 feet and it doesn't bottom.I'll only be able to see int the spring/summer.Hard to tell on snow running chains…I have a set of blue ones in case the grey are too soft...

    Cool

    Back at it again !! The crash last winter bent the front bulkhead as you can see in one of the pics.Just waiting on the bulkhead to finish the repair,hopefully,nothing else is too badly damaged.Me and junior finished up our new bodies,here is mine….

    Good here.
    I no longer have the stampedes. Still have both chassis'. I might get them back up and running again sometime. I've converted them to road vehicles. I'm almost done with my new build

    The last few pics are of my car well the chassis part of it. But I went another direction and haven't posted anything about it yet. Once it's done I'm probably going to post something lol.
