    Ya, what happened? And why are shocks spun 180 degrees or switched sides (can't really tell which from the pics)?

    Seen this and the car that broke is not even close to stock and it has been reworked from a crash; long travel desert race YXZ with huge tires, just a bit outside of design specs if I had to guess.

    I heard the same thing and the clutch going south. I have also seen pics of these things crawling pretty well even without the Rekluse. Some cars are being heavily modified also with clutches and gear reducers.

    Don't have one, but driven them a couple of times .

    Great car on hardpack dirt!

    In the dunes you have to keep it boiling like a 2 stroke dirt bike.

    Its "tippy"

    The driver wrote that they "hit something really hard" , and apparently it was hard enough to knock the radio harness plug out of its socket. I would bet they stuffed the front end into a big whoop, and bottomed both shocks simultaneously. Doesn't look like they are running bump stops, so the full force of the bottoming out was transferred to the shock mount welds.

    Tubeworks makes the 70% lower first gear and (i think) 30% lower over stock 2-5 range gear set. Included in the upgrade is the increased clutch oiling system that prevents clutch failure. Look up Tubeworks.com for info.

    ***also visit Wellerracing.com, they are a dealer, and ran that set up at this years King of the Hammers. YXZ crawling with no clutch issues. ***

    The serious crawlers are running TubeWorks and the Rekluse is the way to go from what i hear.

    I've had one for several months, put about 500 miles on it and love it. Great for hauling ass in the desert, up steep desert terrain, and dunes. As others have said here, the gearing is tall, but if you want to crawl, Tubeworks has a 70% 1sst and 30% 2nd-5th gear reduction, that comes with improved clutch lubrication and a tap for an external Trans cooler. Yxztalk is the most complete forum if you are interested.

    Upgrades I've done...
    1. Street legal kit for AZ.
    2. 14x8 Method Racing Beadlock wheels and 28" x 10.5 Tensor Regulator tires.
    3. PRP 5.3 harnesses.
    4. Safety Cage upgrades
    5. 2" wheel spacers
    6. LED light bar

    Planned:
    Weller Racing (Desert Tuned) Suspension, complete exhaust, and ECU tune are all I plan to do.
