    136" frame 88" Wheel base. The semi-trailing AAs don't lift the front tires like trailing arms but its going to have the powa pull them up any how. Be nice not to worry too much on landings and whoops 'cause torque converter!

    Building the glorious jig table, the frame is 100% drops(scrap).
    Its gonna take 2x sheets of 1/4" steel but well worth the ease of construction.

    Bingo! We have 2 gantries on 1 beam. We just got done making the front one lift/lower off the remote, got to get the back one done. So nice having full wireless controls, safer too.

    The fab table also doubles as a camper on weekends.

    Just tossing this out there - GM makes an "LS4", which can be found in 2006 2007 Monte carlo SS', some grand prix, and the impala SS of those years - it is a 5.3 LS engine mounted transversely to a 4 speed auto for a fwd. Mount it in the rear! Another great thing about them is the are SUPER CHEAP! I saw one on facebook marketplace last week for 1100 bucks with trans and all modules needed to run it!

    The issue here is the output of the trans. I have not seen one before, just going off of the FWD models I have seen. #1 you would have to offset everything to center the drive outputs. #2 the width of said drive outputs. You want them as narrow as possible to get the longest axle to yield the most suspension travel. #3 would be the shock loading and unloading that stock trans would see. You probably could go for a while before granading it.
