Went for a ride in it today....WOW...handled the chop very well at speed, not at all what I expected for a rear-engine rig with very little tune time on it...everyone involved should give themselves a nice pat on the back.

Why do you have your headlights on in the daytime? Bling factor?

Looking forward to the video. I'm sure the stills don't do it justice.

headlights are on for safety, there were other vehicle out there too, driving much more at your old mans snail pace.
Even the videos don't do justice. 60 mph over 18" whoops looks smooth in the video.

front suspension needs a ton of tuning, and I'm not sure that I can get it figured out before the TREC race in a couple weeks. at 60 mph in the whoops I wasn't even using the front bumpstops. You can see in the pictures how much uptravel I have. Still not sure on toe-in vs toe-out. Toe-in makes it a little squirly on hardpack stuff at speed, but it helps pull out of a corner.

I bet there are a lot of places where I will hit 55, but yes, 55mph with trees 12' apart in unknown terrain is a bit sketchy.
