Sanded the rotors and pads.... they were glazed as hell and didn't make a real pleasant sound when you used them. Now they are silent... just in time to go wheelin tomorrow and fill them with dirt! Filled it's tank for tomorrow. Also admired it's beauty.... ROCK SLIDERS NEXT WEEK! I'm excited!

Thanks! Yup, it's a 3'. The mount took me about 2 hours to make and paint. I also have a 4' white Firestick to throw on if the reception ever gets a little weak.

Wow. That's tiny. I believe I have the 6. I have that same mount, except mine is silver.

Yeah, i fully agree, when i saw you said it had torque management, i thought it explained allot. i can barley squeak the tires off the line in the rain, but if i put my foot down if it already rolling in 1st or 2nd i have no issues lighting up the rear tires. and it does feel like it cuts power durning shifts like my tuned diesel (which does)
