Yeah I really enjoy looking at frame by frame video or super slow motion. Makes ya cringe a bit sometimes seeing how much abuse the trucks really take. Makes ya wonder how they survive sometimes too.

OH MY GOD! The ground swallowed your left rear wheel! That does look very freakish when you show it like that! I'd say you came out ahead!

Yes sir, those are the lengths as long as you are using axle mounts. What axle mounts are you going to use?

Well, since I have some time off from the KK-2 while I wait for parts to arrive I decided to tear into the original KK-1 and see what's up with the axle.

I knew I had a bent inner axle, but I just wasn't too sure where exactly.

Let me tell you, this sucker was tough to get apart. Bent her real good!

New part should take care of that wobble just fine.

:explosion: Nicely done sir! =D>
Bottomed out the front suspension pretty hard ehh?

I have done that a few times. If your careful you can actually bend that back.
I had that same thing happen to me with my super-stocker..... more than once..... LOL

Yikes! At least you did not bend one of your axle tubes! If they were plastic, I think one would have broke for sure.
