    Well don't that just blow great big chunks. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif Is the only physical hurt the broken arm?? If that's so then that's good cuz if you trashed that tube frame then the crash was pretty violent. Well anyway, I always good luck so good luck to ya and I hope somethin is salvagable from the mess.

    Thanks guys....

    Details are that I was bein' a bonehead /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif.... + a little bad luck.... Went into a turn too fast about 70 ft from the trailer (last turn of the day!), and we flipped over once real hard and landed in a dirt bank on the side of the road. Was prolly doing about 40 in 2nd gear.

    I don't have any pics yet... but it twisted up the frame pretty good. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif Fuel cell did it's job, as I didn't spill a drop of fuel, and the cooler on top survived the roll just fine - as well as the 2 burritos we had heating on the intake manifold /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif.... They stayed on the intake /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif...

    So... after collecting my thoughts for a day or so, I'm thinking that it will be worth trying to repair this frame so that it's at least trailworthy... and then build another one this spring/summer.

    so are you saying those truxs have good traction?
    well, glad you think it is repairable.
    you can take the good with the bad though man, you had already said you would do a few things different. now you get to do them. just a bit sooner. maybe some "window" nets next time?
