OKay, scrapped all my other plans. cannibalized my chassis. tonite i got it rolling under its own power.

Leaf springs at all corners

BWC chassis, extended to 11 and a quarter inch wheelbase

1.9 trail doc tires


still have to mount the winch and purchase and modify the blackfoot body.

i know i know....worthless without pics.

holly is outta town with the camera so when she gets back tomorrow i'll get pics up.

THIS THREAD IS USELESS WITHOUT PICS!! lol!

He set the bar high cause I haven't gotten into the race yet. Twisted Evil I'll have the start here in the next week or so. Already have the tires, rims, axles and tranny.

I can't wait to see what you come up with Reid. I answered you PM about the LC wheelbase. Sorry it took so long.

its worked great for me. Very low center of gravity for a scaler. My ground clearance and break over angle leave something to be desired but i kept the suspension "lift" to a minimum. I was going for a stocker with 33"s stuffed in the fenders.

the chassis is great and was the perfect lenght. everything worked out great.
