    Just a Smidge of Advice Sought -A-Arm Buggy Front Camber

    DD buggy build. Car will not see dunes (or extremely rarely). Desert, washboard, and some unavoidable pavement is what will lie before it in its future. I've got neg camber at 2.50 and 2.40 at 50/50. I'm not going to be spot-on at 2 degrees, so my question: As a general rule, and given the...

    Be Careful - Paul Gerhardt Kennewick WA

    Sorry this happened to you. I have dealt with whom I assume is his brother. He was a totally stand up guy.

    Fortin vs. Weddle HV25 -Want am I missing? School me Please

    Thanks for the response. I haven't made up my mind, so that's why I'm asking. The HV-25 is pretty new, so I don't know of it being used in any race applications as of yet. I do know Weddle suggests keeping the HP to under 500 and keeping tires to 33" (to say on the R&P wear), but they are...

    On Topic Best E-Rated AT Tires??

    You might take a look at Duratracs. Put a set on my former 3500 and I was extremely pleased with them. Had several sets of Toyos on other rigs (3500 and e350 Sportsmobile (10k pounds)) and for me, Duratracs hands down. Metric sizes, but their biggest in a 20 measures out to 35.5". Wish they...

    Fortin vs. Weddle HV25 -Want am I missing? School me Please

    As of now, I plan on going with a Weddle HV 25 but Fortin has never been far from my mind. Dual Sport build. On paper, Weddle seems a no-brainer. Am I missing something? Comparing a Fortin 4 speed (because of the larger gears) to the HV25: Cost (Weddle for the big win). Gears 25mm vs 27...

    McKenzie's is SOLD

    And you took care of me yesterday Nick. Thanks!! Yes y2K, I've got one too (and the price book). Ahhh, the days when you could just order a Chenowth from the catalog.

    McKenzie's is SOLD

    I hope for a usable website soon. Neither McKenzies nor Pro Am had/have decent sites. Hell, McKenzies no longer has FB page (which was a decent alternative for contacting them). Hope you guys get this figured out in short order. Oh how I long for the days of the old McKenzie's Catalog...

    So, after months of silence (Monday Sept 5 was Dave's last correspondence in which he stated that his wife returns on Wednesday (9/07) and would deal (likely in the form of a business check) with the then agreed compromise of a partial refund of $500 so I could have these arms fixed -check never...

    Hey Kevin! Kevin (above), on the other hand, built a beam for me several years ago and it turned out very nice. Remember that double sleeved beast? I digress. Anyway, don't be shy about regaling us with more Dave stories. At least I'm in good company.
