Thanks Gent's!

i got my TC in today (COMET 500). bigger than the last one (COMET 40) which siezed up. for some reason someone welded the nut on the old one so i can't repair it. at least the new one looke serviceable.

cool, I was wondering what happend to you. That TC is huge. I didn't realise that you had removed the gov from the engine, last I heard it was just a thought. A seized TC seems to be more common then I thought. Those shocks look awfully tempting I do want some. But I wont have any funds till tax return time, what are you asking for them? They still look like their in great shape.

Hey T! I wasn't really thinking about it but if you want 'em their yours...for these shocks all I will ask of my CLTC brethren is to cover the shipping. let me know when your ready for 'em!

So speaking of shocks I put the new ones on and theres definitely a taller stance.

i was wondering how much it will lower when I got in and it did lower, probably to the point of the blaster shocks with no load. so anyways when i set it down off the jacks one of the steering arms broke....didn't see it bending when the new LONGER shocks were put on. so now I'm working on getting basic steering backl. I'd REALLY like to improve the steering somehow...i think I saw someone here that had some kind of small motor for each front wheels? or small universals? ugh I will deal with this later as I just want to drive this thing and try out the new TC and shocks!!!!

Hey conrad I also noticed the with your new shocks that your "caster" in your front set-up has changed. this will cause your steering to be a little more difficult. plus with increasing the highth it changes the center of gravity so it will be easyer to flip or roll on its side. I'll look through your thread here aand see if I can come up with any solutions that might help.

Yep. Still kickin....

I'm so out of the loop for so long....but soon will be back. Just need to finish up some family business so i can get back to figuring better steering control. the basic go kart style rods do the trick but I'd like to improve on that.

I am not dead.

I am just side tracked.

However, due to unforseen domestic drama and family issues, I am getting Bat-minded again.

I am beginning thoughts on body panels for my build.

It seems my access rights have diminished somewhat on the site. Or I've been gone so long I'm doing something wrong? in any case it's good to be back and this fall/winter I intend to have some stuff to post.
