make sure you know what your doing with the welds, dont want it to break on you down the road.

yeah if they break on you it will lock your rear end up sending you spinning out of control.

totally not true bro at anything over 25-35 mph it will simply shatter from the force and you will free spin. i have seen it happen. luckily my first one locked up at about 10 mph on the way to work one morning. this was becuase i did it with a f-ing 120 V flux welder and they welds didn't penetrate deep enough
