Carl's new Build
« on: February 07, 2012, 07:52:42 AM »
Toy time $$$$ is tough but I sold my buggy.  While it did get to be a good performing mini I had things I wanted to do different-better-bigger.

So the first step, buggy loaded for last trip to meet up with buyer.

Picked up this motor a few weeks back, looking for a Busa but this is close and I snagged it for 1/4 of the price.  Also picked up stole the cluster and header, $100 for both.   ;D

So after the ride with Enemy in his rail I was hooked like a hooker on crack!  DS has hooked me up with unbelievable CAD drawings, that I had to change.  Does anyone build without changeing crap?  So we are a family of three and this rail is going to seat three.  So I made the changes for the extra room.

Going to run f150 outer cv, A-arms all around, RCV inner fixed 930 joint, and hopfully 0 plunge.

Cool looks like your making progress. 8) 8) 8)

Since your building a 3 seater, is the driver seat going to be in the middle?

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.
