    I appreciate everyones input on what if situations...and these are things that I take very seriously when engineering and building vehicles this low to the ground with or without the aid of air/hydraulic suspension. With the measures I went to...I'm confident that in the event of some catastrophic failure of a componet, this vehicle will be fine and the occupants safe.
    With that said..If it were my car, I'd cruise it til the wheels fell off. Thanks for all the kind words, I hope to make one of these for myself someday:rolleyes:

    This build is EXACTLY why I post so infrequently. After seeing this I'm left grappling with an OVERWHELMING sense of inadequacy! Maybe I'll just sell off my cars and tools and join others in the pursuit of needlepoint! This is totally freakin' awesome...

    Outstanding workmanship. Loved the rear end and inboard shocks.

    One question? As the car sits now, how high is the frame off the ground (ride height at the lowest point) and how much of a drop on the front axle? Thanx, Gary
