    Hey Richard,

    I believe Flyer and I are still planning to help you out with the suspension design. I have a pretty handy calculator in Solidworks that I used for my setup. Are you using Solidworks?

    I have access to a CNC mill at work, with some direction I'm sure I could finish them. Let me know how much you'd want for everything, I'd love to run it in my car.

    Talked to Ben for an hour this morning and the bodywork will be here Monday, Sept. 7th!
    Axles are on the way. Front end designing starts as soon as they show.
    I'm so ready to get the started!

    WOO HOO!!!

    The BFG KR2's are available and I have five of them on the way. It's odd that I had to fill out an application and sign a waiver for them, but it was worth jumping though the hoops.

    30x9.5R15 size. They're gonna be PERFECT for this machine. Can't wait to get them - they're coming out of SoCal, so I should see them early next week.

    Looks like this project is finally starting to get rolling.

    Let Justin and I know when you're ready for us!

    Those are awesome tires! I wish they made them in a 33x10.50. So far it's only the 35 and 30. I need to call Jackson MS and see if there's anything in the pipe for that size.

    A little more teasing!

    Got five of the BFG KR2's today. I've had six Method rims sitting on a shelf for a while now (one is a spare for my XP). Spent the better part of three hours assembling six bead locks. 24 bolts x 6 rims, each bolt is hit probably 6 times - yea, I've done enough screwing for the day. Everything's torqued to spec, though.

    Six little rims sitting on a trailer:



    Mini-Trophy Truck tires - they look just like the big ones you see on the TT and Class 1 cars.



    Sidewall close up



    Tread pattern - check the little ridges between the lugs on the edges.



    Steeeeeeker



    Five mounted tires with the hubs and rotors installed in four.



    Installed, the tires are 29.5" in diameter and 9.75" wide with 30 psi in them.

    I have the dimensions and need to model a tire now. Gonna model the front diff too.

    Setup axles are supposed to be on the way and the body's supposed to arrive either Monday or Tuesday.

    I'm going to have to set everything that I have up on the floor just to see what it all looks like once the body gets here.
