    Hubs on Troy's are The Edge aluminum hubs 4 on 156.
    Mine are an old set of 4 on 4 that I just needed to get rid of.
    Wheels are 12x6 4B 2N
    The discs are 3/16" x 8 1/2" dia. mild steel, laser cut.

    Heard back today on the first testing of this front end.
    Troy says the turning radius is much tighter than his other 2 Piranhas.
    He said that slow turns on pavment were similar to a small car and he didn't even feel any pushing. Ackerman? With 1 1/2 turns lock to lock steering is smooth and easy, not twitchy.
    A big improvement over the XRV and escort racks that were in the other cars.
    Suspension was a little soft, but he was only running 200psi in the shocks. The pressure was set with the cars weight on the shocks. So they were possibly only around 175psi. He's going to add a bit more this weekend and do it at full droop. He did place an order for another front module and wants me to look into modifying my racks to fit the Barracuda.
    All in all he's happy with it and sees no issues so far.
    I'm still waiting for the CD with pics of the transplant.
    He'll be taking this buggy up to LS in Oct.

    More progress on my frame this week.
    Nerf bars, radiator and seat mounts are done.
    I'll be doing the dash and steering column brackets next. Then full weld what I've done so far.

    Not much more to show right now. Ran out of 75/25 this afternoon, so it will be Monday before I can finish welding. I'm also making a new longer set of lower a arms for the rear. These, plus custom boot flanges, should allow me to push the type 4 cvs to 28 degrees. This is my goal anyway. Hopefully I'll have a roller by next weekend.

    Hoping to see it in action.

    Wanting to know, will the front shock go vertical at full droop? You said that Troy mentioned that, you didn't fill the front pushing. Would you suppose that when turning left, the right front dips and the left rear would spin freely, so that wouldn't make it push? Thats just a thought, thats what my four wheeler does when turning.
