    my god, your buddy rolls over every ten minutes. then he just lays there and waits for someone to pick him up. I think I would eventually leave him there

    couldn't find an up to date high milage post, so I dug this one up. curious what the highest known nytro has. I have 11000 miles. I assume there are some out there with 20-30,000 on them

    fuel starvation at wot

    yes it has a rev limiter, but its 9300 or so. I will dive into it this spring and update. I figure if nothing else it may be the pump

    Star Suspension kit for XTX skid

    I am a mechanic and can tell you with certainty that a long bolt going through a hollow mount is a problem. exact same problem as the drive shaft bolt that breaks on half the machines. it would stand a chance if it were a solid mount, but I figured just move the mount. If you want to take it...
