@Max A.: great accomplishment!
I would like to point out that you have built the most modified Roxor body on this forum. Yet, you still have the Roxor grill. You're true to the Roxor brand.
In contrast, most forum members that have not made any body modification (me included), have replaced the Roxor grill.
Max A., you are a true Mahindra / Roxor brand embassdor. I hope Mahindra recognizes you for your work on their behalf (or at least know about your work).
Enjoy the race.
Hey @Max A. Can I get a measurement on this hole? Looks like it's maybe 3mm from the top of the frame, how far back is it? I prefer metric measurements if possible. I'm just about ready to burn your kit onto Jezebel.
When this happened, did your roxor idle rough? Looks like it may have been damaged enough that you wouldn't have driven it very much until you machined the flange flatUpdate.
I’ve had 2 major failures so far. One of which was my fault, the other I can place blame elsewhere.
I blew up my rear differential. This was a used differential that came out of another rig. The carrier bolts came loose and began the chain reaction leading to the self destruction. I was able to re assemble it with random parts from my parts piles temporarily until the new diff is built.

I cut a shim on the plasma table to space the bearing back out from where it had spun down on the carrier and found new bearings in my pile of parts. View attachment 7736

I re patterned the gears and installed it back in the roxor and it’s held up for now but it’s just temporary until the new diff build is finished.
The other failure was the turbo....
I smashed my exhaust pretty good backing up into a rock. It grabbed it and pushed everything forward.... and at the end of the line was the poor little turbo exhaust housing. It warped the flange and created a leak causing the turbo to spool slowly and make terrible noises.

My next exhaust will include a section of flex pipe to take any and all strain off the new turbo.

No room to work in the inside plate with that still attached. And it’s the inside plate that is key to the reinforcement strength
I did mine in reverse then. I dropped the box but left the steering shaft on and removed the adapter bracket and also removed bumper and winch. It was tight. Guess there’s really more than one way to skin a cat. Poor cat, he ain’t got no fur no more.I did not remove my winch plate or bumper. Just dropped the box off the frame and hung it down as low as the lines would let me. It’s tight but definitely doable with these plates.

It would work but it wouldn't be the end all be all, and it will be more of a pain to grind and correct later if there is a failure.Would just welding the sleeves with a fender type washer to the frame be sufficient? There are 4 connection overall. The plate definitely spreads the load out.
