time for anthor L.T. ?

time to ask a question. I've narrowed my selectoin to LSR and XMF. the LSR is +2 foward and XMF is +0 forward. Is there an advantage to the longer wheel base other than easier to start up a dune face.

I dont know the advantages.....but most that dont go forward with the arms do that for short course. The rhino wants to push when the front arms are pushed forward

it keeps the stock steering geometry not moving it forward, it steers way better IMO, LT cars are kinda hard to turn at slow speeds. also the lsr is 6.5 not 6, so axles are harder to find, you have to use thiers or have some made, 6" axles are everywhere. ive broken 4 axles on mine and found a spare in the dunes all 4 times!!! this is important IMO

dont buy my video. it sucks anyway!!!!

Thanks for the replies guys . i guess the next question would be do you really break axles that often where that is a concern. And do you still slam into the bottom of a dune when you are hauling ass to make it up with a long travel with +0 froward

i drive pretty dumb is why i break them, they dont break that much if you dont do really big jumps, you get some sandblast in your face sometimes, but no slamming really, i wouldnt think it affects anything but steering geo

just curious what do you consider big jumps? I get 2 or 3 feet of air when cresting a dune with stock sup. beat the hell out of me but it looks cool. Dose lifting out of the throttle a little before landing help at all with long travel or is the added stress of being wider. anther question is when you say 6" wider is that per side or overall.

Oh and thanks for taking time time to help a newb Robert.
