Rear links mocked up yesterday. Wheels sit where they’re supposed to on first try, dunno how I managed that
Started in the front links yesterday and will tap the holes out today. Once I get it sitting on its own I can set height properly and make brackets for shocks.

All the links are done and fitted, not working quite as I’d hoped being a single link. It may be the extraspeed rod ends I used on the front as it binds a lot more than the rear using vanquish rod ends.

Anyways I’m planning for take 2 on links. Making some tabs to make it a 4 link setup and I’ll change the lower links a bit.

Thanks for following, the kids have been crook lately, work has been hectic and house projects all taking time away from Rc stuff.

Ride height now set

Shaped the upper link tabs and started on some other mounts. These could be used for slider/side step mounts or may be used for something else.

I tell myself who needs a plasma table while I’m making these but at the same time wishing I had a plasma table.
I am enjoying making these little pieces when I get a little free time and updating this thread for my memory bank.







I treated myself to a new vice. 125mm jaw and adjustable for the drill press.
I was using a normal vice but realised that the vice itself wasn’t level, even though the drill press is. whenever I’m drilling multiple pieces together nothing was square.
The last hole or end of hole just wasn’t where it was meant to be. Looking forward to tomorrow now.

Ok so new vice fitted. Man this makes things easier. Drilling through the 4 pieces is now accurate. I don’t have a use for these pieces yet but they will be used. Slider or side step mounts maybe. 3mm corner holes and 6.5mm centre hole.
