Johnny this damn Devestator still ain't showed up. I emailed and they said it stuck in customs a bit and gave me a tracking number. Literally all it shows is that it cleared Canadian customs. Odd.

Looks nice right. Issue I see is sits kinda tall. I wonder if you can run trail arms in front. I have seen a few rigs do it and seams to work well.

there were a bunch of guys running wraiths with trailing arms f&r in colorado for the u4 racing, and they worked quite well.

If you care about that sort of thing

Next build I may care. I would need help at that point from someone helping me get things perfectly square. This is pretty rough but for learning from YouTube it's not bad.

nut getting too hot and not sticking to the rod? the rod needs more heat than the nut. so kinda work heat into the rod on both sides of the nut to get the rod good and hot.

also, i will sometimes prebraze the nut so all i have to do is flux the prebrazed nut and rod then just heat it hot enough to flow the brazing again.

regardless get that rod good and hot before moving the heat to the nut and the brazing joint otherwise it just wont stick and bead up on the much hotter nut.

(kinda makes me feel gross saying nut so many times)

Trucks getting closer got fenders mounted. Truck looks slightly out of proportion. Could go with or without fenders
