    I bought a forklift and just had to test the flex at this point. The front wheel was 91,5 cm (36") off the ground

    and the rear was 125,5 cm (49,4")

    Looking good so far!

    I'd say your at about a 320. I'll be a nice guy and trade you straight across for a set up that i will gauruntee a 770 out of. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    You have to measure your wheelbase but I did the rest for you.

    Forwards:
    .0108 / wheel base * 1000

    Backwards:

    .0079 / wheelbase * 1000

    For future reference when you do it with a forklift its
    [(sin(23))/distance wheel is fron ground]/wheelbase then times all that by 1000. Oh yea and thats for a 23 degree ramp. For a 30 just replace the 23 with 30.

    i dont know what your rti is but that is some crazy flex in the rear end.what are you putting on there for a bed.you might be hindered if you putr a stock bed back on there with all that flex.looks real good though.better than mine.

    Ok so the WB is 131,5... I do not know how to calculate with sin but I found an online calculator and the front would be 703 and the rear 957 on a 23 degree ramp /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    The rear works good but the frame is working big time here without a bed. No stock bed for me anymore, I took it off before I spoiled it. Now I can sell it to someone, it is in really good shape. The front springs are allmost new and I expect them to soften up over time.
