    Clunking on pulling away Y20DTH

    Last night in the wet, accidentally got the wheels spinning after hitting a puddle as I was pulling off. Could feel the tyres letting go but there was this big thudding noise as they were spinning. Felt like it was coming from in front of me, as opposed to something dragging off the arse, anyone know what it might be?

    Never heard of tramping before, it was a proper thudding noise, so much so I almost got out to have a look under, I would have done if it wasnt pssing it down.....
