Got the new king pin bearings pressed in & the steering pretty much buttoned up... You will notice the blue spacer bushings above the kingpin/spindles.. Those are the urethane automotive sway bar link bushings that I incorporated to lower the kingpin/spindles pretty much all the way down to the bottom of the yokes for optimum road clearance & a wee bit of dampening...Ordered the 13s- 4p packs also.

I74 Another pic.... Motors & controllers ect. will get ordered next week. 6 days ago

I74 Yea,, a ''big'' set... Really liked when he chopped the motor towards the end .. I get that aggressive flying on a sim,, but ''no chance'' for real,, @ the field,, especially that close to the ground.... Sim,, all you gott'a do is hit the reset button when you crash .. LOL 1 week ago

I74 Wait till you see what I came up with for King pin spacer bushings. Made them out of Moog ''blue'' urethane sway bar link bushings. They will also add in a bit of dampening,, plus they don't weigh Jack squat,, compared to stacks of washers ect,. 3 weeks ago
