It's one of the items listed on the report I gave to Brant.

I was looking at changing out the lower control arms for some from Total Chaos but they cost $1600 a pair and without the aftermarket parts I'm already looking at a bill of $2500 or more for the yota parts and labor...so I guess that this might be a good time to say I'm backing out of a lot of runs this year but I vow not to be a stranger, or no more than I am already.

How did that happen? I guess I was oblivious that your rig got tweaked.

So you did bend the control arm after all. It's interesting how obvious it was that something was bent based on how the tire looked - but just looking at the control arm it was hard to see an issue.

Bummer man.

Yep she did not hold but I did have fun after the hit, and not so much on the 3 hour ride home going 20 but I did get her home. And it does suck but it was all my doing and I did have a blast!!!! And it just means I'll have more of what I wanted done to my car with out the ability to go play with it since I'll be working of my last fun time after a day of picking up trash. I'm planning on making the rally and Bill Moore Lake and maybe try to make CM2011, but I'll have to be playing REALLY safe on that one.

And I forgot they are checking the bearings as well....fun times

Anyone who has seen me go through cars knows that this is nothing, plane and simple I was going to fast a thought I had enough room to get by a rock that was sticking out from the dirt at about knee high...completely of my own doing, I would say maybe the altitude had something to do with it but that would just be stupid.

I just made all of the orders I need to fix and up grade it, I'll soon be rocking new Total Chaos UFCA with AllProOffRoad Spindle Gussets and bump stops and Ricohet FLCA skids....as well as the Bud Built.com front stainless steel skid........she'll soon be all dressed up with no where to go.

Brandon - You are always welcome to grab a seat with us on any run you'd like. We always have something open and close by, so just let me know when you want to go! I'm sure we'll have one available!

Thank you very much It's more about the reasoning I have of that time on a trail or getting to a tail can be used to pay back the loan I've had to take, I can get it all payed off this next month, but feel I would be over working myself and the main goal is to pay it off by September.
