85" wb wow! that is as small as an honda odyssey! the back tq limiter is that part that i posted a link to and fabr a diy link. it chattered like mad in mine and after replacing it the take off were a whole lot smoother. welding the stock together is not a bad idea but i would think one would want to get it balanced afterwords to be safe.

Those are the BEST days!  Last fall I had Silver Lake to myself for maybe 45 min....and then a jeep showed up.   LOL
 I picked out a nice fast line and did 3-4 fast laps around the dunes.  Freaking AWESOME!

Good times.

Good call on TIG welding that part!  I've still gotta get all my background info on what that actually does.  LOL

As for my wheelbase, it is currently 85" long.  A short lil fella. 

I have had thoughts of building a new chassis...  Nope, don't do it..... But it could be a 2 seat rocket...Don't do it..Modify the existing car and have fun.

 LMAO  Did I have an argument by myself on a forum post?? 5:

slave support.....https://store.schnitzracing.com/schnitz-clutch-slave-support-bracket-suzuki-gsx1300r-hayabusa-99-07/


i do agree with fabr , heavier springs and stock steels and friction with heavier springs but your choice ( i went aftermarket clutch kit but didn't know)......https://store.schnitzracing.com/ape-clutch-spring-kit-suzuki-gsx1300r-hayabusa-99-07/


and i put one of these in, made a diff imo and would do it again......https://store.schnitzracing.com/brocks-clutch-mod-suzuki-gsx1300r-hayabusa-99-18/
5 minutes with the TIG and you have the same thing.That saves you something like $248. ;)

Use the argon you have then decide if you want to go different.Argon is best for SS,4130 and aluminum but fine ,generally, for steel.

well you officially completed the hardest part.....the plan!  :D

i dont think i saw the wheel base listed but could've missed it. all of the mid engine 2 seats i built were 106" plus. the 3 v6 and turbo 2.3 have been 107 to 117" wb. 106" on the "mini's" has always worked out great. i prefer 84" plus on track width in the rear for stability but thats personal opinion. of corse with 24" of usable travel one needs 28" ground clearence plus to achieve 24" usable travel. so the higher they go the wider they have to get.     

i agree on all 4 np 930's....keeps it simple. i normally have 2 spares. hope i never need them but got em.    i never had any issues with the f150 cv itself but did have a wheel bearing wear out faster then i thought. seems like on a few diff rails, always the drivers side first.
