    Channeling the body that much certainly looks cool, but I don't know how you guys sit in those things...

    Either the picture was changed or I looked at it wrong. If I did I can admit my mistake.

    you must have looked at it wrong.......everyone makes mistakes
     
  14. I'm loving this build, and to me the front end is no different than a typical suicide set up, except its all above the chassis.

    I think its cool to try something different like this, too many rods built to the same formula, which i why i also went underslung with my T, although using parallel leaf springs. Its good to think outside the square and do something a bit different. I've had old rodders look at my T and you can see them trying to figure out how it works, real WTF looks on their faces.

    4" is good ride height too, i've only got 3 1/2" to the lowest point at the moment for the shakedown driving and its not quite enough for the crap roads here in NZ, taller rear tires will help there. Otherwise the whole underslung concept works well and drives as good as anything else and sure handled well on the track!!
