We had a great weekend camping. Took the emaxx and had great fun running it over a large mound of gravel and doing power slides up and down the roads and over some fresh mud hills.
Cleaned it up just now with the compressor and noticed:
- torn boots on the rear axels.
- all axels had some gouges.
- rear front springs were pretty chewed up.
Good things.. RPM wear plates did their job.. Alu front skid beat to heck and ready for replacement.. New shocks and springs performed well.. Learned not to run over gravel lots..
Are spring protectors worth their cost?
Will bigger tires (big joes) protect the boots better?
Ok no suggestions....
In relation to the rear axel issue I picked up 8 new axles off eBay at a cost of $5 each after shipping, etc (sucks to be in Canada).
I figure tear the booties off the rear axle and drive it until it dies. Then replace the whole axle... Seems cheaper and easier that way....
