    We decided to have a little fun and pick the front end up to about where it will go the full 1/8 or 1/4 mile. While up it was a good time to see exactly where the window will need to be so the driver can see where he's going. 7-22 8.jpg 7-22 7.jpg 7-22 5.jpg 7-22 4.jpg
     
  2. That is awesome. Really gives the visual of it going down the track at that angle.

    I appreciate you taking the time to so thoroughly walk us through how you build vehicles.

    Sorry I haven't updated the progress lately. Haven't had much time to work on the truck but we have moved forward a little. Made the dash filler panel to tie it into the roll bar. Would have went lower but anything hanging below the roll bar will be in the way of seeing through the port hole in the floor when the wheels are in the air. The big hole in the fire wall will be lexan so the driver can see. IMG_1532.jpg

    Next step is to make the wheelie bar. We couldn't find what we wanted for wheels so we just made them. They are fitted with really good sealed bearings because it will be riding on them for a long time. IMG_1449.jpg IMG_1615 (1).jpg IMG_1616.jpg

    Welded inserts in the rear of the chassis to bolt 1" X 2" .125 wall tubing for the main support for the wheelie bar. IMG_1431.jpg

    The two tied together with the same size tubing and a 3/16 plate on the inside of the wheel for more strength. Might be an over kill but we figure this needs to be strong. IMG_1618.jpg

    A few shots with the front fenders on. Sharp eyes might notice we moved the truck to another location in the shop, hopefully on it's way to being finished and out the door. IMG_1555.jpg IMG_1558.jpg

    I don't know how you make the time to build with all the things you have to juggle each day, but God Bless you and the team. I really enjoy watching and learning on this build as well as following all the SEGA races and teams.

  13. Great work, but who is Ted and are those his cigarettes in the bed rails?

    Robert, Ted is looking over Gabe’s shoulder. Just double checking, I guess!
