On one particular climb the rear Dynatrac Pro-80 axle got wedged hard between two boulders. Throttle was applied and something had to give; the rear springs wrapped up and the driveshaft and pinion yoke bound until the U-joint straps came apart. The rear Deavers are excellent springs, but big leverage of 40-inch rubber and low gearing surpass their intended use, so a Randy Ellis–built traction bar has been added for future rock work.
