it's bad enough when one tree steps out in front, but when they actually get together and plan an attack... :ph34r: :lol:

That's the distance you'd have to move your pinky in order to not sound like an idiot. I know the burden of pressing shift to capitalize is a great one, but c'mon Wayne, you can do better than that. I used to type posts in caps like yours, but then I decided that I didn't want a job mixing concrete.
ROTFL

About the grabbar, ive been lucky. I came back twice (not hard), but the aluminum just scrapes off so easy. Id go with steel if anything, or you can do like i did on my 300ex, weld a 1/4 inch thick steel plate on the back, it works great and has barely any wear, if your a wheelie maniac (like myself) then its a must.

Personnaly I would rather keep replacing stock grab bars than replacing my subframe! I have seen it plenty of times, you get a beefier grab bar, hit something, it stays striaght, subframe gets bent.
just my 14 cents

thanks *****! :D
the only reason it was in caps is because i was at work and the work computers are always in caps lock because the programs we use dont recognize lower case. LoL taht was the funniest thing i've ever read. job mixing concrete ahahahhahaah *****

Fine, I guess I'm cool with that Jumbo


OK, OK, sorry we hijacked your thread. I think that it is a tough decision on this one. Like Tom said, you can buy a stronger grab bar, but its a big risk of bending the sub frame instead (like buying really strong handle bars, good luck on your steering stem!!). But, for those of us with a tail light, it costs a lot to replace, plus I'm nervous to screw up my pipe! If you bend the grab bar even a small amount, you risk crushing your can <_< Tough decision...either way you will have problems and advantages over the guy that chose the other option...

It was something like that. It was a tight fit and when I went sideways it was either fall down a huge hills or try and make it. I made it but slammed both trees and took out both tierods. The steering stem's fine though. The rims are also fine w/no damage but they're T-9 Baja's.

Chrome will weaken the metal


Haha, maybe you are on to something, they will have to buy another one from you when they bend the weaker chrome ones

If you buy more tie rods, go ASR. I've ran ASR's on C'Dales for MX and XC for about 2 years and not one has bent even w/some big collisions. Very tough stuff. I ordered a set for the 450 due in on Friday for me. Hopefully I get them or I'm out of racing this Sunday which screws my chances of a series podium.

Actually there is a new process out that many chromers are using now that does not weaken the metal. I forget if it is a new way or new chemical but either way it is possible now. I talked to several platers about it a while back when I was building a mustang and needed some stuff chromed.
