I also have some shims (somewhere) to put on the MRC outputs to adapt to 1/10 size driveshaft yokes.
    All yours for free if you want, since you are one of the 3-4 people on here that are actually building something.

    Sounds like a deal to me. You are correct, I was planning on having a carrier bearing since the trans is so far forward. Thanks a bunch!

    All the tabs are mounted and the chassis is painted. Now on to working out all the issues. First one is getting the pan hard bar steering set up working. Then I need to lengthen the back axle by 1/2" in order to get a driveshaft to work. Shocks are in order, so still may have issues when I start articulating.

    All that is left is the carrier and the rear shocks. Working out a few small clearance and binding issues. One will probably be Ti lower links between the skid and middle axle.

    The lunchbox body is in order. Need to stop by Otts and pick up some plastic for the stretch.

    Looks pretty slick Wes!

    One thing I can't wrap my head around tho.. How does the drag link react to the steering with the rotation of the horn the way it is?

    Maybe a pic of it steered left and right?

    They are Hot Racing. The look is nice, but the quality is not top notch. They should work fine, and wee only$18 a set.

    It is only a 6x6.. You want shocks that work, but a 6x6 is a bull in a china shop, finesse is not their forte'. just line it up and let the 6 tires do their work. Are you going to fill the last 2 shocks in? It is not really needed, I did on my Mack, but that is only because I had the shocks sitting in the parts pile.

    Yeah, they are on a separate order. Should be here this week.
