I went to Rausch on Friday and we ran reds and blacks. I had to leave a day early because of an issue at home, but I had a good time while I was there and also took some damage.
On trail 5, the first trail of the day, the weld on my rear shock mount failed and so it was hanging for the rest of the day.
I contacted ECGS about the issue to see if it would be covered under the 5 year warranty and Chase told me he will give me $60 to repair it, so I’m happy that they are standing behind their work especially since you can clearly see that the weld failed.
Another problem I found at the end of the day was that the top end of my rear spring pushed itself into the bumpstop cup and the rubber piece came out and is missing. I fixed that today and reseated the spring correctly. I just need to get another rubber bumper.
My drivers front LCA has had a bent axle side mount for a while because of the poly bushing putting so much stress on it. I managed to rip that off of the axle so I need a new bracket and to get it welded on.
Also on rock creek I bent my Currie tie rod. I’m going to try to winch it back to shape now that my winch is working again.
I also cracked my drivers side tail light in half so I need to get a new one.
So I drove all the way home like this. It took about 3:45 where it normally takes me 3 hours because of all the damage I was taking it easy in the right lane. It actually drove ok, it would shake some when slowing down but I just had to let off the brake and get back on it and it would go away.
I got my new winch control box In today from Warn. They sent me it free of charge even though the 1 year electrical warranty is up so that was really nice. The winch works again.
