Per your reply to Mike, I'm sure you have this covered but with OEM axles/u-joints, the upper link will have to be mounted exactly parallel with the axle...unless of course you are planning to use a floating axle.

Beautiful work though.

BWT, what kind of steering are you planning?

Chance, you are 100% correct on parallel with the axel. And yes the yokes are floating. Flammin Riv Quick box with the following front suspension mods in the previous pictures. Thanx Bud

Excuse my lack of knowledge, but what is the advantage of wavy discs? Beautiful build, can't wait to see your progress!

Other than the unique look, I think that it has to do with cooling. The brake pad is full sized, but is only in partial contact at any one time.

I like the upper link being forward of the half shaft. I would check to make sure at ride height it has enough room during compression not to contact the frame? Awesome work.

Hi guys, Dan to ansewer your question as to why the wavy rotors is two reasons, one for better cooling, and two less material equals less rotating weight. Each rotor only weighs in at 4 pounds each. The rotors are 12 inches in diameter which will increase the stopping ability, so the small amount of surface area that it sacrifices for weight is very minimal.

gnvair customer wanted it to appear to be a 4 carb 140 engine. Awesome setup though, looks killer...

Was you goal "Zero" camber gain on the rear during regular travel? What is you projected static camber setting and what rear sway bar are you considering? Nice looking fab work!

Look at the pic showing the clutch cover: good advertising for David Herrin and The Source. I hope he sees this thread.

Whiteracing: Great job on the build too!!
