http://instagr.am/p/COX305YAuwl/ How much of this rollover is lack of shock damping and body bounce? Vs how much is unavoidable on that line?

It's the second truck I've seen roll in the past month that was bouncing like a kids toy before going over.
Looks like to much skinny pedal and over lander driver. Spotters speaking Spanish so maybe driver no habla and ran un interpretable line.

Agreed on lack of throttle control. Guy taking the video calls it a while before the truck even starts bouncing or gets caught up. Would hope he tried a couple times with less skinny pedal and didn't make it but doubt that

So.....I broke a CV yesterday. Failed at the outer. Boot was no longer connected and only had one ball inside the outer. No cage.
Ironically my buddy broke his first CV and it was the outer. All balls and broken cage were inside the boot.
Is it true that the inner binding is what causes the outer to disintegrate? Of all the CVs I have destroyed, I snapped one shaft, and all but the two liters that failed were from the inners pulling out.

The two that I snapped, I snapped the outer. Full droop, locked, turtled. Based on rebuilding them, the cage should definitely be the weaker spot because the inner is inside the cup and seems beefier.

Apparently I broke somewhere on the trail and realized it after I got back on level ground. It was a fun day

Apparently the traction bar didn't want to stay attached to the axle any longer.
Threads on the rod ends are a little fuckered. Threads on the weld on bungs are fine. Nothing broke. How in the hell did my Taco managed to rip the rod ends out of the bungs?
any chance the lock nut/s have been loose a while and allowing the threads to move against each other until they final pulled?

They were pretty damn tight due to deformation from welding the bungs.
But I can see the wisdom in using them now.
Probably going to go back to poly bushings with sleeves welded to the bar.
I'm shocked you found threads easier to fuck up than a weld in bung, those things are stupid soft.
