Yeah it can be a bitch to get back on because the ends arenít perfectly in line so it binds. A c-clamp to snug up that bracket would help the bolt line up better.

The tires I recommended are also street tires. The 615 gets damn good mileage. I seriously doubt youíll get twice the distance with the PS4S.

Got your order in? Share your build.

To elaborate, if you misshift mid turn under high g loads and lock the rear wheels it will send your rear end sideways.
