Here's a shot with the new springs on and the sway bar disconnected. It's not flexed out yet and the springs aren't broken in either.

Finally did better than third this year but, it cost me a cross-flow radiator. :shock: Last challenge was a DEEP mud hole that twisted my fan into my brand new rad. I think I'm done with mud. It was fun though!

Unfortunately, no. Stock fan; it did flex, then bend; THICK mud.
