no video this is the only time ive seen the rear suspension lift
i did in fact hit a 1.69 60' spinning
I believe that will be improved upon

I like it. Looks very similar to mine. How much air are you running? I might try to go up a few pounds and see what happens. Clay

Jon not understanding what you mean? Do you have a video?

Spit out what, when you said you could barely get a finger in setting then I see way more than a finger at launch??
That is a big ass finger! Laughing

a pic is a pic. i need to see the entire launch in motion to be of any help. problem with that pic is that it doesnt show wether the front is coming up or going down, crushing the rear tires, unloading the rear suspension 10 feet out........
