My first real breakage...

After wheeling my zuk for about 5 yrs now, I have finally had my first real breakage. I was wheeling at my buddy Mikes, In his back yard (of all places) and broke my first axle. The birfield came out in several pieces as you can see at the link below. The birfield curse has finally caught up with me. If anyone wants to know how, I was backing up a steep hill with my tires turned all the way to the left.

Re: My first real breakage...

I wonder if those new super swampers had anything to do with it.
