    is this a trail only rig now or will you be taking on road? i have been tossing around some ideas for rear steer so that i could safely take over the road.. maybe a solinoid or air driven tapered rod into a female sleave.. so it would line up the rear perfectly for the road. or even just a bolt , because it'll be only used on the trail??? just a thought anyone esle thinking of this?

    by the way, nice job dude /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
