    Whats the deal? When i go play out in the sand and i go for a hill. Im just about to the top but it starts digging. Then the thing starts hopping like ive got $10,000 worth of hydros on it. Ive had two blazers, including this one thats done it. So what gives? Is it axle wrap or improper air pressure.. or what? And my 74 mostly did it in second gear. /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    what gears you running??
    My 79 did this too. I was running 35's and 308's so the tire rather bounce instead of turn, caused by the spring flexing trying to keep the tire on the ground.

    I already have ORD flips and add-a-leafs. And im going to be softer in the rear now. Thats gonna suck. /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif Guess ill have to save up for some A-Tron Gold plated titanium bars /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif . That anti-wrap set-up is sexy. I was kinda hoping to have a reason to get 'em.

    And for that one the 74 had a 4.10 and 38s but a HEALTHY sb400. This one has 35s and 3.08s. My 74 did it a lot worse than my 84. I used to hit my head and shoulder at the same time on the roof of the 74, with my seat belt on. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif
