Now your cooking with oil, good job, when you make the fropnt mount raise the nose cone just off the adjuster maybe 1/16 or what you can but looks to me you are following what I said. Keep it up, Won the overall and 1600 championship with this car a couple of years ago and 15000 dollars now its one of our pre run play carsRagtop RonParticipantMarch 4, 2021 at 5:00 pmPost count: 417
Hell yeah Pat your liking it! This rig will have years knowledge and experience in it before it ever hits the dirt for its first race. Sooo cool!Pat KParticipantMarch 5, 2021 at 7:37 amPost count: 2933
More cool pics & stories please Dave!!!!
Bit more progress yesterday…Riley chopped out two little section we needed to modify the rear trans mount.
They fill the gap where the trans will bolt to the mount.
I welded all the cut seams and filled the gaps for CV clearance on the frame horns.
We will build it if it comes.BBWBParticipantMarch 5, 2021 at 9:23 amPost count: 1364
Nice work father and son.

So sinking it will lower the CV angle with weight on the suspension and also more droop for suspension travel/ bump absorption? I like all these insider tricks, been out shopping for a bug lately because you guys have given me the baja itch… even if its just a daily driver wanna be hahaPat KParticipantMarch 5, 2021 at 11:16 amPost count: 2933
Dave… do you make any mods to the trailing arm mounts? Any other pan mods you would do before putting the body on?
We will build it if it comes.Dave-coParticipantMarch 5, 2021 at 4:36 pmPost count: 78
yes, you will need to figure what arms and pivots to install. I recomend Lothringer arms and his pivots, micro stub arms. I run them on all my cars with no issues. Dont cut the pivots out till you decide what arms you will use, let me know when you decide but you can do ther things like body cage etc before you do the rearPat KParticipantMarch 5, 2021 at 4:47 pmPost count: 2933
I bought these arms.
Is Lothinger the same as Fodrill?
What pivots should I go with?
Rear trans mount mocked up. Working on mid mount.
We will build it if it comes.ColeBModeratorMarch 5, 2021 at 10:58 pmPost count: 2632
Gotta get that money shot of the cool stuff going in!Dave-coParticipantMarch 5, 2021 at 11:13 pmPost count: 78
you are doing well. where you bought your arms ask for the pivots that go to it. you will want your cv joints 19 1/4 axles and 930 4130 boot flanges you will need the spring plates use 4130 sway away swing axle plates that you cut down to fit, 27 degrees on the axle angle and i put mine at 90 degrees at the very bottom so at ride hight you will have negative camber. you will weld the pivot nut the the pivot and rotating up ot down you will see the wheel camber and negative camber. The entire rear must be together to do it right. Dont just stick the pivots in their, you will trim the old one out. Its work but the way to do it. Trim the front mount to fit with the 1 inch tubes I mentioned before. Looks like you have spent some good money, Glad I could change your course before you went to far. 951 696 0219 is my number if you have questions while working on it but its looking 10,000 percent better now that you have done it correctly for 51600Dave-coParticipantMarch 5, 2021 at 11:27 pmPost count: 78
Suspension stops you will cut right behind the bottom front hole leaving it there eliminating the bottom back hole all the way back then when you kinda figure where or I should say hoe far down your spring plat drops will give you a idea what kind of tear drop plate to weld on there and when you have the travel figured out buy solid square stock that you can weld on for your stop then you will gusset the plat with 1in to the torsion housing if you understand what I mean. You are doing great PatDave-coParticipantMarch 6, 2021 at 8:23 pmPost count: 78
get your pivots from Fodrill. any parts you may need call Dezz at Nexgen off road at 951 365 1408 he will give a good deal and can get you most anything you need. I am a big supporter of his and he supports and sponsors my sons. and he ships world wide. Real good guy to deal with but being most aftermarket arms have different degree pivots from each other best get the pivots from where you got the rear arms fromPat KParticipantMarch 7, 2021 at 5:00 pmPost count: 2933
Finished the trans mount and frame horn reinforcement between yesterday and today.
We will build it if it comes.
