Lower to the ground on 37's, might help you keep this one off its lid while racing :)

Already had a 205.

$3 for the nuts (bought 2 extras) from McMaster.

I kept the tcase in place, didnt even unbolt it from chassis with removing the engine. Didn't even unbolt the drive shafts.

I very much doubt the buggy will ever get an Atlas. Remember, I plan to sell it eventually and if I am investing in an Atlas, then it goes in the jeep.
Do you remember what size and thread on the nut? Googling anything with thread brings up most every forum thread ever.

Well this has had a change in direction. We have decided to wait on ultra 4 racing for a while and just fixing this rig up and wheeling it as a rec wheeler / RBOR dominator ;-)

If anyone wants some 37's let me know

Being the first actual buggy I built, now being several years later and lots of learning. Lots of things I'd done differently .
