    Why a full spool and not a mini spool. The FF 14 bolt carrier is pretty bulletproof.

    I picked up a full spool from Randy's Ring and Pinion. It is bullet proof, heck probably bomb proof. :haha: I don't remember the price, but I believe they have it on their website.

    I wouldn't recommend it for daily driving though. Any kind of sharp turn on pavement and you hear the outside tire being drug around the corner.

    Ugggg, now that you said that I am questioning myself.:confused: Either way, one tire turns and the other doesn't causing lots of tire wear and also a increase in your turning radius on pavement. I don't notice the turning difference in dirt though.
