Don't know what I am doing

The link works on my computer. This is the first time I tried to post a picture so I don't really know what I am doing.

If you're going to be Jumping your LT at the Enduro Fest, You've got to expect a few broken parts here and there..

You might be able to fly your LT, But when it lands, something's gonna break..

That's just wrong...


Oh, well, It's not like you can't find the problem..

I don't think that failure has anything to do with lubrication.

Sometimes you can get so fixated on the fact that you are right that you lose sight of the reality that it doesn't matter.

I knew the brakes were good but good enough to snap a rear drive!

Tell us more when/how did this happen? Did you hit a speed bump doing 80mph?
