    Thise are some pictures I took a couple of weeks ago on Trial 42 located in AZ. Its rated at about a 3-3 1/2. I have finally got all the bugs out of the "buggy spring" suspension and now I am going to start on the rear. Enjoy.

  4. very nice! the buggie spring setup looks cool, excellent flex. how does it drive on the highway? can you still run a swaybar and use disconects?

    Blue Beast, I removed the swaybar a long time ago. I keep the front shocks on 5, because the front springs are so soft and that seems to keep it ok. I drive 65-70 mph everyday with no problems.

    MT Pockets, I have a 1in spacer in the driveline at this time and it hasn't come out yet. I have a raised steering arm and a dropped drag link, but I really need to do the crossover at this point. I just haven't had the time to build it.
