Picked up some parts for camber and toe links. Had to Stark it and use 30wt shock oil for cutting fluid.

Good? Bad?

The new tires are only 1/4" taller than the Ripsaws. Look huge, though. Must be the square profile.

I can't wait to get it done and have the chance to shoot video. I've been thinking about the type of shots I want and how to make them happen.

Might take a few days to shoot the video footage.

Let us know how it handles ASAP. Building a proper IFS is one of my life long dreams.
I must've missed this, but are you going to use this for crawling or higher speeds?

I plan on it being an all-around rig. Should be a sweet G6 rig.

Build it, drive it, learn about how it handles specific situations, and make tweaks to set-up or my driving style.

Here's an addition to the "cave" today. Picked up a small 3" clamp-on vise for $18.

Will come in especially useful for threading the links I'm making.

Also, I stuck a Ripsaw next to the Irok for size reference. Square face of the Iroks makes them look HUGE.

That cage is truly a work of art. So much money and skill put into it. It looks awesome.

JIA, I have a feeling you already stated it but I don't feel like reading through ten pages of thread to find one measurement - what's the wheelbase at as it sits right now?

Thanks, guys.

Wanted to work on it today, but I've been feeling like crap.

You know, I never measured. I eyeballed it and put it together.

Just measured, it's right at 14".

On both sides.

So it's square.

Also scored a little something to help with future metal-working projects.

Got a couple of weird looks when I carried it into the hotel.

"Is that a small air compressor?"

"No, it's a plasma cutter."

Yeah, I did.

The looks that followed were rather funny.
