My guess is it’s supposed to defy your expectations when you first are seeing it to when you actually dive into the specs.

People mention the suspension baseplate but that’s been around, what interests me about the truck is the needle roller bearing pivot and unique bushings that lock into place.


@RipTideSports got any thoughts about this?

@ChrisChaput? oh shit he actually has an account
