Anybody know if the Max tie rod is beefier than those used on the two seater? Anyone broke or bent a Max tie rod yet?
Strange looking clean break. What did you hit? I'm the OP on this thread and I ended up bending one of mine shortly after I started it and replaced both with some from turnkey utv.Snapped mine in Ocotillo Wells day before yesterday. Fortunately, it failed less than a mile from camp in an easy place to recover the Max. I'm afraid the CV may have been damaged when the tie rod broke.

I honestly have no idea. I had my kids with me all weekend, so I took it pretty easy. At the time of the break, my buddy was taking his kids around the trails that surrounded our camp. He didn't hit anything and never went over 10 MPH. I assume that I bent and weakened the tie rod during our trail ride earlier tat day. Fortunately, it broke at very low speed and in a easily recoverable spot.Strange looking clean break. What did you hit?

Hi Cali,Hey Jeff,
Have the same max as you but with stock tires. Do think the heavier weight of the tires had anything to do with it? I was in ocotillo as well over New Years off pole line, where did you camp and do most of your riding. I put over 100 miles on my max in all terrains that weekend with luckily no issues. Tryin to figure out what caused it for you so I don't do the same somewhere out in truckhaven or the badlands!
