    The thing is light though. I sorget his name but somone on here ran stock 10/ 12 bolt with 40's no prob/. Stcok th eaxles arent that strong, with a good shaft it should hold up fine.

    These are the wrong parts for what we do...fullsize but if you were to drive that buggy it would be pretty damn good. And for 5g's it aint to bad

    its ugly as all hell.
    i see alot of people breaking the stock carriers not the shafts. hes gonna be spitting out u-joints left and right.
    its a weird rig. it has 1/2 really good parts (coilovers, hydro etc..) and then the rest is cobbled together (bad engine, half tons, trxxus ats) dont really get it

    I don't know what to think about that thing. I am under the impression he threw those axles under it sell it and took the good ones out? I mean a limited slip in the rear of a buggy??

    The COG looks to be way too high on that thing also, I don't know. I would want to see some pic's of it out on the trail.

    That is a driverless DARPA contest vehicle. Engineering students/teams try to make an obsticle course based off of sensors and GPS. No remote no input except for emergency stop-off. Most vehicles crash or the computer just get confused and freezes/runs away.

    It has potential but needs a lot of work.
