    I've meet the guy builder/driver once. O2BJimmy know's him pretty well. His shop is close to a friend's house, so I see alot of the buggys he builds sitting out back.
    Pretty awesome rigs. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Highangledriveline.com is one of his sponcers.

    And to think the builder is just a mid 20's (age) high school drop out. He builds some of they apsolutely baddest rock crawling buggys. At one time, the top 3 crawlers where all built by him right here in my neck of the woods. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It's hard to tell in the pic, but the axle still looks perpendicular to the face of the tire to me. So either the geometry in the suspension sucks, or it is broken in the pic. I've seen similar pics of this rig before so I think it's just the geometry and length of the links forcing the rear into steering positions like that. Anyways, thanks for sharing. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    It is a Awesome rig. I'm not a hardcore rockhead like some, but I do like a well engineered rig. That thing is just a work of art. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    it looks alot like the drop axles on our new macks,the steer if you air up the tank. the old axle would push you in a turn if you didn't lift it. cool as H E double hockey sticks. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gifto /forums/images/graemlins/truck.gif
