SHOWTIME is on the dinning room table right now. I worked on it until 2:30 and getting ready to start on it again now. Bushings might be the answer? Time to get back to work and also need to upload some vids to U Tube.

Robert I think the answer for you is preventative maintenance. Grease and/or replace bearings more frequently.

You are 100% right. That is what I did to the rear end and it was a pretty easy fix going to do the front now. I am ordering a few sets of Fast Eddies Bearings and going to start inspecting them then replacing them as needed.

Robert, there's no time for ordering trinkets!
We need ECSC video!

i think its totally worth it seeing the lines the guys with it were able to pull... if i had rear steer it woulda helped me out of a couple jams where the winch was useless. speaking of winches, i can also see how a rear mounted winch could help in some instances.

the c3 courses were BRUTAL. take busse, put it on a 45degree slope, and add moss to the rock.

Not to mention some cool points! I'm going to get one of those TZI's for the rear of the baller JK. That's a cool setup!

Last night I figured out that I could use my trim switches on the 4pl to control the winch! I had no idea that thing does all that. I'm sure it does a ton more too that I haven't figured out.

I was a judge for two of war pigs runs and I really liked the way he got creative with his winch. He'd drop it back around a section of his tubing and use it to pivot around trees on a slope. Gave me some ideas anyway!

I hope I can make it to some BALLER events next year. Sounds like it was straight up amazing. Still need to finish both my rigs... Anyone want to buys some 2.2 KMC Enduros??
