Dave was late. He was supposed to be there at 10 and I hung out a bit longer than was needed to wait for him.

What did Dave think?

He loved it, as did I. How could you not? He thought of the Jeep as what it is, amazing. Everything is done right. He wants his to work that way once you're done. Who wouldn't? I know I would.

Since I am a card carrying Southern Smartass member # 2145 and no one else has said it, it is left to me.

blaine and anyone else from Savvy, needs to be very careful when testing that bracket, you stop too quickly and luckrider's head will be up your ***.

Well, another day gone by and my Brackets-O-Death have killed no one.

Practical application is still kicking theory's butt.
Your like the kid in math class who HONESTLY doesn't understand why the answer is less important than the solution.

Why wear a flip flop on your left foot, and a steel toe on the right?

And you're like the teacher who doesn't understand that some folks know what will work and go do it even if it isn't arrived at by conventional means.

That bracket is not going to fail and there's nothing you can do to make it fail and I'm going to post back up for every day that goes by and it doesn't fail or kill someone.

Besides all of that, in reference to your math kid analogy, I knew the process to arrive at the solution long before I built the brackets. I'm well familiar with aluminum alloys and what they can and can't do. I've been working with it in stressful applications for at least 20 years.

I have not once said it was going to fail. I believe I said:

You are most likely 100% correct. All I'm trying to point out, is that in a safety sensitive system, there is ZERO room for oversight. You gotta test.
It scares the piss out of me that someone who sells so many brakes ASSUMES anything at all.

Your statement regarding the teacher vindicates mine about the student. Answer inclined kids become mechanics and solution inclined kids become engineers, for better or worse.

Over and way the *&^% out.

Where do you think I am making any assumptions in the very least when it comes to brakes? You're judging a long history of very design successful products with regard to braking, off of one thread full of very tongue in cheek banter by myself.

Look around, do you see the kit for sale yet? No you don't and you won't until I'm 100% comfortable that it will take everything anyone can throw at it and survive just fine. For the record again, I DO NOT SELL ANY BRAKES. I am the designer, developer, and supervise the testing and evaluation.

You're late to the party with your assumptions, but no one has spent as much time as I have figuring out the process for making these things work. The fact that I'm 100 percent successful with ZERO failures of ANY KIND should give you a clue as to the amount of time I spend on this stuff.

What ever, and that's a very big WHAT EVER.

Just because I have no letters behind my name to satisfy the needs of some doesn't mean I take this stuff lightly, nor does it mean I haven't sent a bracket to an engineer buddy to have it drawn up and a FEA done on it.

Does this mean you won't be watching the tally of days that the Brackets-O-Death haven't killed anyone?

If you can do all that in a couple of hours, we really need to talk.
