wow! Yes, great video!

But even more so, GREAT BUILD! The way it handles all the different terrains so well, definitely proves its set up perfectly!

I could watch videos like these all day long, they are just too freakin cool!

Thanks! The long video took less than an hour to make which I don't understand. The full throttle romp was about 15 minutes and I only caught a little on video. I was having too much fun. The truck held up to the abuse just fine, but an electronic failure ended the fun. I dunked the receiver on the trip back to my Jeep.

Thank you. I'd like to take credit for tuning it, but that's exactly how the kit builds. It's awesome.

My anti-Land Rover policy is back again and I ditched the Defender body. Now it's Austin Gipsy time!



















I present to you a leaf sprung Gelande 2. It's not worth the effort and performance loss to most people. However, it's worth everything to the folks that like to keep it real.





The rear was just as easy as I thought it would be. A matter of drilling a few holes and mounting the leaf hardware.


The front took a bit of head scratching. I had to make a bracket to attach the hanger up front. I found the missing bolt, it was stuck to the motor. Don't you hate when that happens?


And since the shackles lined perfectly up with the motor mounts I had to eliminate them and build a new brace.


I still have to file the chassis rails down so the shackles can swing more. Other than that it's done and I'm satisfied.

Hooray for unnecessary engineering!
Despite the performance of link setups I always find myself coming back to leaf springs. Maybe it's the bouncyness, or the way they look, but there's just something about them.

I have to agree with you there, I've been criticized for my use of leafs on my Disco build. But there's just some sort of attraction to them. I cant explain it either. Stellar job Noob. Kudos!
