Thanks Mike
Sorry I haven't gotten these yet. I didn't forget but i have not even looked at the jeep the past few weeks. I've been out of town a lot but when I'm home I'm never motivated to work on things. I am going to try and clean the garage up a bit tomorrow so I will try and get some for you then.

Would be a fun class, KOH would be more fun if it had racing events for most of the week

It wouldn't change the schedule, they would be racing with the 4500 and 4600 class. Personally, I don't really see a difference besides round vs square tube frame and hydro. And since there really isn't a measurable advantage of the round vs square tube frame, it would come down to hydro vs hydro assist.



Essentially it will allow a bunch of guys who aren't competitive any more in the 4400's a day to race, with us full bodied jeeps .

In a Jeep or whatever Jalopy you race, at high speed hydro assist is preferable than full hydro. In buggies a regular steering box just complicates things. My bud Fred had to go full hydro steering when he stretched his frontend and he has been less than impressed with driving it on the highway. Would take a lot of getting used to at 100 MPH +.
A variable speed powersteering pump would make things a lot more managable

It's definitely better to have a mechanical connection in there somewhere at high speed. However, it's also preferable to have a triangulated 4 link in the front over a 3 link with panhard. If you can have both, win win!

This afternoon I bent some tube and started messing around with the rear bumper and spare carrier.

As an idea maybe, run it down to the Clevis mounts as a hinge point for easier tire removal?

I'm sure you've already got the design in your head though!

I hadn't thought about making it flip down. That could be done very easily with what I was planning to do.

I started to freshen up the ATL fuel cell I picked up cheap. The foam in it was already starting to come apart. I'm going to order up some Alltech baffles and probably talk to Tim at LII about putting together a fuel system for me.

Before


After


I attempted to make stencils for all the writing on the outside of the cell. Just cutting the stencil for the "ATL" and writing above it was a huge pain. I may finish the top with the rest if the white lettering if I feel like spending hours to cut more stencils.

Nice work on the fuel cell! Tell Tim @ LII Jay (REDLYNER) was saying good things about them .



When I saw your thread pop up, this wasn't the update I was looking for.
