You are right. I couldn't feel the abuse the car was taking! We were duning fairly hard in the bowls and "big hills". Luckily it let loose  just cruising up a slope. It tore part of a tube out, causing it to bind up the heims end, and breaking the radius rod. The rod wedged into something,  or else it would have folded up into the shock and also cut my new paddle tire in two. I am also lucky it didn't break in a hard turn, because I am sure I would have been upside down. Not cool with a young lady in the passenger seat. Although, we had already had the "safety talk" about seat belts and how to react in a crash shortly before. There was about 3 threads left in the broken radius rod, so we managed to get it back to camp. Turbo setup is good, I think. 3rd gear is even more usable.

Sorry  I couldn't make it down.  Looks like you had a good time. Maybe TOO good?  :nw You can fix it in plenty of time for our Oct get together.
