The tube is so steep at the bottom that my shackle smashed into the bottom tube every time I failed and slid/rolled back. Its hard to stop 5800lbs all of a sudden You can actually hear the leaf groaning every time I roll back. A normal leaf would have succumb one the first hit.

i attempted that hot tub last year but with the wheelbase i couldnt stop the wheel hop and ended up getting winched out
makes sense now with the shackle hitting hard and bending the spring vs just wheel hop lol
