after all the V6s that beeftastic went through, i was a little worried about the 318 at first.



but after watching what he has done with it, i think this engine will do fine. untill he needs more power.

Holy hell those shock hoops are ridiculous! Should look pretty sweet sticking through the hood though. Gotta love those nice compact 18" travel shocks

That's my first test at making them I believe they will end up about 5" shorter I'm building it with the springs I got from you

I'm betting they will still be through the hood we'll see.

I wish you were a bit closer - I bet we could fab some awesome covers that would act as vents and also showcase the awesome.

Screw you! No dirtbike till I get back from Japan.

I thought the same thing you did, but read where he's building it to drive out of the garage.

Have faith in the BeefMeister!

Looks good! I'm surprised no one has mentioned this yet....are you concerned about catching that B pillar on stuff? Seems like it'd be easy to catch that bottom portion on rocks and twist the whole thing around at the base.

haha no that is full droop.

I'll measure ride height tomorrow I believe it is gonna end up being about 3" shorter than the last build.

The B piller yes I'm adding more too it the cage isn't done yet I'm just trying to hammer out the suspension so I can make it to Drummond in 2 weeks.

Thanks guys
