    Thanks drGonzo, this was an interesting experience lol. I did find that the truck is so heavy that when im going too fast and turn the wheels the truck does not want to turn. Too much moving mass i guess.

    Dude loved the vid. At least you can try something different and still have fun with it. Maybe try some Teluride a-arms to narrow it up a bit, might make it turn a little faster. Anyway, great concept, a monster drifter, still love it.:want !::want:

    No i put all the spacers i could find and made the suspension super hard. I also raised it a bit after i made my last vid because i was afraid of scraping the groud :)
