Ernie Italy is off the scale
Default braking and wheeling

I sell an H2 and buy an H1...totally different on and off road.
But something is strange....
When I brake when the truck are stopped it bounce ...go ahead and back 2-3 times...I hope you understand...
Is normal ?

Also another stupid question....
When I'm on twis front and rear opposite tire on the ground, I think that the truck are selfdestroying...
The H2 do not do it any noise....
But the H2 do not do what and H1 do!!!

Yes. This is definitely normal. It's due to the additional flex from the brakes being mounted inboard at the diffs rather than at the wheel. You'll get used to it by adjusted how you use the brakes. After a while, you can almost make it completely disappear.

All I can say on this is that all H1's do creak and pop and makes lots of noises. Just the nature of the beast, so this is most likely normal as well.

The rocking motion when at a stop actually is caused by gear lash in the geared hubs and any movement in the cv's. With the brakes inboard the lash in the gears allow the truck to move slightly seeing they are outboard of the actual brakes
