Re: Twisted Axle from EL 5.0???
About a year ago, my mate was dropping a nice brunout with his XT when an axle broke. We removed both axels. One was completely demolished, the other had a huge twist in it.
The reason for all this, 25sp axle, 11.5" of rubber on the road with a minispool.. Wayy too much traction for that size axle.
Also, when we first got my EA (about 10 years ago), our mechanic replaced an apparently twisted axel in the diff.. and that was in a fully stock EA.. with a 2.77 diff, and 15"wheels.
Figure that one out!!!
