I wouldn't suggest testing any part in the mountains. Especially parts that you have questions about. There is no doubt that RL are at the bottom of the coil over foodchain, but to just straight up bash somebody because they chose a certain part is fkn stupid.

true straight racelands suck because of the rear thats it. the front is fine. they have held up perfectly through almost 2 years and most likely atleast 50 canyon runs or more with no issues once so over so...
