I've been building this car for almost 4 yrs and finally completed it. Took it to Stoddard Wells over the weekned to test it and surprisingly rode plush and was fast! I did break a couple of body mounts but was fixed after I got it off the trailer.

Next step is to call around for a suspension guy to help me dial in my shocks.

Will post more pics.

suspension tunings a cinch. if the rear is too soft screw in the bypass, to stiff let it out. if it buck or pops too much screw in rebound. That should get you close. Its a play car. Comfort is probably the most important thing.

Thanks guys! I'm stilll learning to drive this car but know everything about. I couldn't be happier with how it came out especially since I built it. I'm already thinking about building another one with what I learned from this one that I can improve.
