Awesome build and rig. You are the carbon fiber master! Any issues with the rear driveshaft angles? Binding, power loss or the like?

no binding at all... this thing can pick the front up pretty easy of the line so no power loss that i can see.

Good deal and good to know.
Think it will need a rear sway bar? I added one to my solid axle trophy truck and it was amazing how much it calmed down the "three wheel motion" .

I really like the cab forward design of this thing too.

thanks,

it will three wheel similar to a trophy truck (if i try to) but it is really controllable... i have one in mind though just in case. it actually handles turning at speed way better than the solid axle vehicles.
