Do you have an easy way to subtract your unsprung weight (hoist and scales for the axle/suspension weight)? I wonder if you're actually better balanced that it looks and the extra weight of the front axle/steering is making it look nose heavy....sprung weight it might actually be tail heavy.

the axles are coming out this weekend, for repairs and spring work so my plan was to put the scales under jack stands on each corner.

Another video from Casey's rig. This is the 1st lap plus a little, just enough for Casey to pass every B-class rig out there. Time for B-class to step it up!

The jeep is back under the knife. Its slowly falling apart.

Bought some ruffstuff frame plates
New PAC racing springs progressive rate jeepspeed coils
and a boat load of heims.

plan is to do a quick overhaul to get it through this next race as it is and then change the jeep over to 4500 KOH mod rules. long arm suspension, bypass shocks and new axles coming soon.

i will have 6 mtr's on arrow race wheels for sale and the stock axles that are trussed and ready to run.

probably 9 inches with dana 50 outer parts.

or a 14 bolt rear.

i like the idea of having spare gear sets ready to go and being able to just slap them in, but i dont like the having to pull the thirds to change fluid.
