The truss is going to be very low profile, and will be based off of Solid's top plate for their HP 60. http://www.solidaxle.com/ProductCart/pc/viewPrd.asp?idproduct=12&idcategory=13
I will build off that top plate as opposed to welding to the cast, but will still weld to the tubes. I plan on integrating the link mount into the truss so its not sticking off the top.
Also thinking about trying to triangulate the front links to get rid of the trac bar. Probably dual triangulate to really lock it in place. Crazy??? maybe?
As it sits right now i'm at about 111", so if i do push the axle any further forward, I'm likely going to shorten up the tail end also, which will make my departure angle better anyway.
I like the idea of the electric fan for space saving, and taking that load off the engine. I've never done that conversion but it cant be to bad. I will search Taurus fan and see what I find.
I'm also throwing around the idea of going full hydro so i don't have to worry about clearance for a drag link and tie rod....
Its sitting in the garage, on jack stands, waiting.
