    Front shocks are in, starting to get the steering figured out. I am liking the looks of the front end of the Buggy now. The new upper tubes that hold the shocks tie it together well. I have also started bracing the shock mount locations.



    Same lower shock mounts as the rear!










    Cockpit is enclosed


    Suspension mount bracing


    Outter tie rod mounts


    Placement on front uprights






    Triangular reinforcement

    Rack and pinion spreader is built. Just need the correct length of 1/2-20 bolts and it will be all buttoned up.

    Can anyone see any issues with having the spreader that wide? It is 10 from eye to eye on the joints. 1 3/4 width where the rack bolts up.

    There'll be a lot of torque happening around the center mounting area - about 5" worth of it on each side. Keep an eye out for wear and if you feel any binding in the steering when running, that may be a sign of loading.

    We (flyerrider & JD66) ended up designing a linear bearing that supports the spreader on the Mini-Raptor.

    Thanks Kfab. Yes that is what I was worried about..I will try it out and see if I run into any issues. I think I have room to add a linear bearing up front if needed, I seen your photos you posted to you thread the other day of your steering mech and thought it was a great idea.

    Although, the reason I went ahead with this, is I seen online you guys buy a spreader bar for this specific rack that is 11 wide. However, that could be designed for a lighter car though.
