Thanks! I've been doing a lot of research and was really lucky to find a couple of good clubs in NJ. I've got a 2A in the works too! Picking it up really soon.
I did the flip, but had to undo the tie rod part because it hit the drag link after the YJ springs moved the front axle forward a couple of inches. That being said, I'm also looking at a beefier tie-rod/draglink since the tie rod is back in harms way. My first thought was the Big Daddy again, but then I saw the Currie Chromoly. Any thoughts?
Maybe I should just get a spare OEM tie-rod? I ahven't had any issues bending it yet, but if I compete in the RCrocks Club comp I think I'll be pushing the rig a little harder. With a tougher rod, I'm worried about moving the weak part to the knuckles. Would the TRE's break first?
