Already dug a big hole in the back ten Drowning used the dirt for a burm for shooting.   4: :7

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

But I have been working on the buggy to :m

Got the old frame rails out and the new one's bent and tacked in. 

I bent the new lower main frame rails down and back 1.750 and that allowed me to get the new S4 about 3.5 inches lower in the frame.  I can now remove the 3.0 stops I had in the emulation shocks and the intern netted me a full droop of 28.5 degrees with the 934 CV'S. Full travel now is 22.0 inches. Going to order new emulation shocks from Mark that are valved 75/90 to keep the tail end of my car from leaving divots in the sand.   I need to get my Bypass shocks torn down and find out what they need in the way of shims to stiffen them up too.  Going to change spring in back and up the 500 LB's to 600 LBS.
