    Something new 2.2

    Man that's a lot of tubes in the front bulkhead area! Were these dumped in favor of a newer lightweight design? Seems these were the pinnacle of the old guard that got left behind. Still kind of bummed to see it cut up though.

    RJ Anderson's XP1K4 is now live!

    That was pretty cool but it should have had some sort of sound track through most of it. The CVT moo gives me a headache pretty quickly. And holly bumpsteer Batman! I wish I had a wall of death to cycle my suspension on.

    You can bolt seat sliders in. I put these in a truck and couldn't get them low enough to safely drive for me, might be what you're looking for. Anodized "Seat-Loc" Billet Seat Slider - Chassis Unlimited

    11/16ths wheel studs?

    Curiosity go the best of me last night and I mocked up everything I have. My Raceline wheels are drilled for 5/8 using a 43/64 bit as near as I can tell and chamfered 90deg to use the standard NASCAR wheel studs. Looks like I'll be needing to drill them too to clear the 11/16 shank and 11/16...

    11/16ths wheel studs?

    I picked up a set of Chrisman hubs that were 5x5.5 with 11/16 fully threaded studs. I later found a Pro-truck rear axle with the exact same hubs so I figured I lucked out. The problem I found was the lugs. The only ones commercially available are the flat HD style like you found but that means...

    Ivan "Ironman" Stewart's 1984 PPI Toyota SR5 restoration

    A few years back one of those fenders showed up at the Leduc swapmeet. I almost bought it just to have but didn't have room for chatchkies in my life then. As I recall, some young flat biller with black socks thought it was cool that it had a Coors sticker on it and hauled it off for $40. If...

    No Mention of Off Road Magazine in 4/14 Dirt Sports...

    No, Dirt Sports is staying and Off-Road is now dead from what I've read and Jerrod's editorial goodbye in the last issue of Off-Road.

    -MY design style-

    Good to know. I built my spindles that same way and never had a bolt come loose. Are you relying on the torque of the bolt alone to keep it tight or is there some positive lock involved? I wouldn't think Loctite would be trusted for such a critical connection. Personally I had envision a pinch...

    -MY design style-

    Looks good. Does that spindle use one long bolt, or is the center section threaded?

    MORE Holliday 200 Pics

    ** RCP body build for AGM BMW X-6 trophy truck !! **

    Love to see the process is so simple yet the skill put into it is outstanding. Side note tho, this does make me wonder how much a welded seam mild steel Jimco chassis goes for.

    :RUMOR?: 7200 B.I.T.D class changes for 2012

    Didn't the TSA 4wd IRS 7200 truck run an inline 6 Jeep motor? Wonder how much power that put down and its reliability.

    That's right...a 3D printer!

    I was at the Westec show a couple years ago and there was a vendor printing titanium parts. It was a laser that melted titanium powder layer by layer. I've had too many hours lost to dreaming of building a reprap machine. Basically a cheap, homebuilt version of a 3d printer.
