Nice work!

Is that one of the Fracture V8? Haven't seen one of them for a while. I almost bought one, then they were gone.

Looks like you will end up with a very short front drive shaft. Maybe just the angle of the picture makes it look that way.

The front diff is right behind the grill, the front shaft will be about 3" long. The rear will be about 5"

Wow you progressed nicely in the last couple days! Looks mean already, can't wait to see the stance with the axles and tires on. Engine looks awesome in there.

So a little weekend progress

Cage is black

I got the tires on the wheels. And figured out the bead ring hits the portals

Got my engine mount/subframe cut out of 1" X 1/8"


And got it mounted into the chassis with three 8-32 screws, and one broken off 8-32 tap

Got some roller chain for my rear shackles. Welded it to the top of the axle plates

Got two more highlift shocks from klabeume and took out the internal springs

The suspension sits in droop in the rear



The front is in semi-droop. Only about 1/4" up travel.
I'm getting about 4" of articulation.

Got drive shafts in an turned the knuckles around for BTA steering


Of course now that they're turned around they hit the lower shock mount.


Here's a detail inside the portal

I'll drink to that!
Used a brake lathe at work with the double chuck and a dremel with a carbide deburr tool to open up my inner rings and clear the portals


I moved the front lower shock mounts so the knuckles would clear.

This thing is awesome!
