    Made almost no progress this last few weeks I did manage to get the rear diff set into my frame
    I had go cut away some of the rear tubes I had fitted as I want to lower the front side of my wishbone diff mounting plates to get my engine lower
    This will mean my wishbones won't be parallel with the ground not ideal but it will work
    I'm also gonna bend new tubes for the top and bottom of the rear frame to suit this new idea it will change the look of the rear end but for the better I think

    Hey!

    Nice to see that I have inspired you to build a ST2 LT too!
    I'm also using tube/pipe with a welded seam, it must be strong enough.. I think

    Watch out with the rear shock mounts of the buggy! I'm going to change that too. As you maybe have read on my threat.

    Keep us posted! I'm very curious about your build. You are going fast! Making big progress.

    I was one of those who suggested you move your shocks so I'm definatley moving placing mine in line with the travel
    Feels and looks like nothing is happening these days
    Bought a tractor too so working on that at the minute

    I didn't see it was you.. the same guy.

    Looks good so far!

    A small suggestion from me, if you are going to use fox air shocks, the plans say 4" travel shock for the front but they are not long enough if you are willing for long travel in the front.. You can easily modify to fit longer shocks thus more travel

It took me years, and just when I think there can't be anything else, I hear something new. Anyway, it's looking good, proceed sir...

    BTW, we have a place in Mayo; my better half is a Galway girl.

    This is why I may end up loosing some suspension travel I'm unsure as yet how much angle these drives can take but I'm hoping around 14 " + or --

    Hi Kevin,
    I'd love to see more about this drive setup you've created. Please elaborate if possible. Thanks in advance,
    Mike
