Nothing but the truth. Hubs have their use... As repurposed boat anchors.

The key is to rev the engine out, choose the cogs as big as you need to make that happen. Big torque and low rpm = bending stuff.

Breaking wheels on a Cyclone means the wheels are total shit lol. Or more likely never tensioned right.
