Have you had any issues with the Raceline Krank wheels getting scared up on inside from rocks etc. since I assume they are 14"?

Talon X
any spacers? Thanks
I wanted all the wheels to be the same so I could rotate the tires. I have 1.5" Super ATV spacers on the rear just to square it up front to rear but ran it without them. No issues. Personally, I think the entire 14" wheel deal is totally overblown.

Please keep in mind you are comparing an R to an X and the suspension travel is greater on an R. There is a potential for the stock front upper A-Arm to rub on certain 14" wheels on an R that may not occur on an X...

You are spot on Paul. Thanks for the reminder.

I do not understand the extra material on upper A arm anyway. I do not see that it gives any extra strength. I do not see any strength loss with mild relief. Thanks

Absolutely agree. I'm getting ready to change the tie rods and I think I'll remove or at least reduce that point on the upper while I'm at it.

Looks so good, How was riding at Buffalo Wilderness? Was there many people there?
Riding was really, really muddy but spectacular as always! There was a group of 4 wheeling folks, Jeeps mostly, that we saw once. Few dirt bikes riding together. Couple of random Jeeps. We were the only 3 SXS's on the place.

I have not been there yet and the place is on my list to go to... my son is desperately needing some outside time ... so we may try to see in the next couple of weekends if it does not get shut down
