    Default Todays Test / Poser Pics

    I was really worried about tearing my fenders off next weekend at Rausch Creek due to the almost 5'' increase in wheel base after installing new wheels with less back space and wheel spacers. So I thought I should do a little test to find out figuring its better to find out now and do a trim job if needed than drive home without a fender.... Looks like the 2.5'' BB was a good call. Here is a few pics out by the wood pile.

    Looks really good! Seems like everything clears pretty well. BTW, not to be a dick, but you increased your trackwidth, not your wheelbase.

    One thing i found out about flex tests is that your only doing a gradual spring compression. When you end up dropping down into an obstacle your spring compression is much faster and may flex more than you think it will.

    I have 4 33x12.50's to prove this.... cut sidewalls kinda suck.
