I would like to say it happened on the down trip from a 6ft wheelie..... but in reality I had just turned into a gas station and was turning into gas lane when I heard a pop noise and lost steering (because wheel had slid back into the fender and wouldn't move). I stopped right there and called a buddy with a tow service to come get me. No other damage (not even to the fender). I won't mention the name of the manufacturer (except to say it is not AJE) but I think it was an anomaly as they had never seen that happen before either. In process of getting another made, plus we are taking a swing at fixing this one by cutting off the end and replacing....

Haven't posted in a long while.... after 20 years of living in a house I had built, we decided to move. We bought an older house that has more garage space and a nice large barn with concrete floor. We also are planning on building a 24X40 shop next summer. Unfortunately all this change has meant that VooDoo hasn't spent much time out of the garage lately. Here is a pic from last year when we went for a little spin to the park....

Digging up an old thread...


What backspacing? What size tires?

How wide is your rear end, wheel mounting surface to wheel mount surface? I appreciate the help!!
