Thanks Dez.
Not too many people cleared that gate clean. It was a tough one.

I just wanted to pop in and say what an awesome concept and truck you have there. My TLT has sat dormant for the last year and a half, and with no buyers popping up, I thought I'd see what was fresh in the build scene.

I have for a long time been trying to figure out a cantilever system that applies pressure to the catty-corner tire of the one lifting, basically forced articulation. Now I read this, and the adage Keep It Simple Stupid comes to mind. If I end up making a new build, you've inspired my thoughts in a whole new direction.

One thing I am curious about though, you bent the wires into the Z shape, and created the arcs, all permanent bends. Then you are using the spring effect of the wire itself for torsion. Have you had any problems with crashes/rolls/everyday driving bending the wires into permanent deformation along the length of the link?

Wow. This build has been an inspiration for a few individuals lately.
Its a pleasure to hear it is drumming up some new ideas.
Still though the credit goes to I B RACIN as this was his brainchild. I was just the laborer.

Piano wire has a memory to it. It its pretty hard to bend cleanly. After the initial bends it keeps pretty true.
In the last 8 montihs since the initial build, I've had quite a few tumbles, binds, and such and the wires are still true. Short of tossing 50 or so feet (uh um...and you know who you are.. ) in the air like a horseshoe, you won't have any problems with this size piano wire.
