well gave her a shake down today and it wasnt with out its problems but i think we will get over them
the day started pretty crap with a puncture on the M4 not good then a rear shock mount snapped off the perch i blame the Welder Confused so we are still trundling along with 3 shocks on my wagon and we decided to try the winch out so with a few words of wisdom by someone who will remain nameless he said try and drive it first so i had a go at this kind of slope half way up and BANG i thought it was the T Box but it was the rear prop spewing his bits every where so just got home and washed her down for a quick inspection and ive noticed that i have a broken front leaf

so the results of the first run are

Puncture
Shock Mount
Alternator (need a bigger 1)
Rear Prop Shaft
Front Spring

apart from that she went very well are the front springs prone to breaking due to SPOA or am i just unlucky

Nobby by the pics i saw before your prob angle look back thats probably why it broke. Leafs, ive never had problems so i say you were unlucky.

As you say now need to improve little bits and it will become unstopable

did you extend the bumpstops to stop the springs going up too far....they will droop as far as they can no problem but if you go too far the other way you will destroy the spring(trust me..i know)
