I've read some postings about the clearance benefits of lift kits, stiffer springs, and oversized tires with much interest as I hate bottoming out as much as the next guy. However, I have some concerns that I'd appreciate some opinions on. With the lift or the springs, isn't there an increase in the CV joint angle which would make them more prone to failure? Also, wouldn't larger tires increase the the amount of torque applied to the axles and the joints as well? Has anyone experienced noticable power or acceleration loss due to the taller gearing and increased unsprung weight of larger tires? I'm hoping that the Rincon is over-constructed and none of factors will be an issue but I'd prefer to hear the experience of others. My buddy's Polaris has a lift and big tires,looks cool,climbs over everything, and chews up an axle and/or a CV joint every couple weeks. I'd rather be out riding.
