Annnnd a set of rear tubes come alive.
Nothing wrong with the lockout style, but I like the smaller OD
possible with the snap ring style ends especially with this
setup using small 3/8” tubes with big 7mm shafts in them.
I may make a set in the future that fit the roller bearing....
Hope to get these polished up later this weekend.

I have always been a fan of .187 links, but I will give
the .125 uppers a shot and see how they fare...
I also usually run bent rear lowers not radiused, but these
look pretty nice! Filled all the rod ends with teflon coated
aluminum balls.

Awesome work!
Love this Ti Fighter.
Even if they are not perfect the look amazing.
Yours will perform much better I bet.

Thanks xkill
I don’t think any cases are a perfect design, are they?

Could probably use a little more polishing but I am sure
I will scratch the shït out of them installing the link mounts anyway...

After losing sleep thinking about which material to make the front tubes out of I finally decided on 7075 to match the rears. Maybe a set of Ti tubes will be in a future Super build, we’ll see...

No, there aren't any perfect cases....
But that's a perfect work you got there.
You went the extra mile on those!
