Just a thought, in your case it could have been keeping the car from bottoming and upsetting the car.

Have been running the Aluminium pulleys for nearly a season and they work great with very little sign of wear.....

Using the Xceed Kruser mostly, find it to be very stable and has good front grip.

I compared the P-37 and P-56 back to back, the P-37 is a great body, has plenty of steering!
