    Ever see a bent nun fix itself on a rev ??

    so maybe 3-4 weeks ago I was climbing some tight trees (maybe a little too fast) and smacked one with my left ski, did a super man over the bars and sat around moping for a while... My nun was bent pretty good, my panel would not open or close without some man handeling, my steering was limited and my left ski sat behind my right ski a good 3-4" as seen below:

    Decide to ride it for the rest of the season as is and then take it apart for a nun replacement. 2-3 rides late, lots of heavy spring trail whoops and a few cornice drops I notice my panel opens and closes normally, my skis are aligned and my steering is back to normal !!

    moral of the story is, if you bend your nun, just beat on your sled till it fixes itself

    Maybe the nun was touched by the healing powers of Maxwell....

    I might have mentioned Maxwell on or around my sled once and it heard the name.. that would do it !!!

    There was a kink in the nun under the pipe, the primary clutch / bulkhead area looked good after the accident. That little kink is still kinda there, but who cares .. skis line up, panel opens up, steers and rides just like it did before.

    Must've been Maxwell Magic ..

    Sled is sitting on the deck perfect. Just took off the front and rear superclamps before taking that pic. IT'S A MIRACLE !!!!! hallelujah

    I was gonna sell this thing next season to help pay for the XM, but how can I sell this magical self healing rev !? I should probably keep it and use it to heal other sleds..

    I'm going to try whispering maxwells name next time I'm mid climb. I bet it gives more HP than a monster sticker.
