Drilled a couple start holes and used an airsaw to cut the rest.

Here is the rebuild kit for the short course.



Thinking of using a pair for the rear but one with out the springs, fill with oil and drill more holes in pistion. Also wish I had a way to turn down the case enough to get rid of the threads.

This might answer your question. Read the bottom of page 3.

***Derwood Designs Double D steering kit for Twin Hammers***

Nice build Wheelbyte! That a good looking Twin Hammer!

You could also take a look at IRIE Products page. He is also making some. Big difference is that his uses bearing not bushings.

I was also looking at the IRIE bellcrank wondering if I could mount the Derwood shock tower to his top plate. As I really like the looks of the Derwood tower and so far his bellcrank has been pretty good but time will tell how the bushings hold up.

@ mnickolson do you know if two of the short course King shocks will fit next to each other in the lower control arms being they are larger in diameter?

I'm only interested in Derwood's design, it's exactly what I'm looking for in my build gives it a unique look.

wheelbyte to answer your question not on the VP lowers. They are just to big and even on the BMRC shock mount they are to close.

That's what I was thinking thanks for the photos! I think a short course and possibly a ultra scale shock might fit side by side. It also looks like the bottom shock end on the SC Kings is thinner than the piggyback ones which might help with them hitting on the lower arms which is common. How are you going to run the Kings on your TH?

Rigth now I am thinking of try'n 2 pair or the scale ones on the rear and a set of sc on the front. The scale one I have stink on the front but I have talked to a guy running 2 sets on the rear and he says they work fine.
