Default Re: Back to the Drawing board....47's and 1tons.

Cleaned out most of the extra axles and managed to get my race car to last the entire 15hrs of the race. Haven't done much on the truck. I got all the tires and rims disassembled.

Planning wise I have gotten a little bit done. I originally was going to attempt to run hydro assist and a steering box with the new setup. The more and more research I did. The more I realized that a hydro assist setup just would not hold up to the 47's.

I would rather ran Hydro assist as it would be tons cheaper, but I talked to a couple guys who have ran assist on 44"+ tires and not a single person recommended it. Everyone of them said to go full hydro and not look back. Makes my choice easy, but my walet sad.

So full hydro is the new setup its more money but the performance will be worth it. Complete PSC Double ended Ram setup with Artec Truss and "ultimate high steer". Havent ordered yet but that will be soon hopefully.

That looks like a hell of a setup, looking forward to seeing that on your truck!

Sold my coilovers yesterday. Swapping to ORI Struts. ORI's have built in air bumps and have a anti sway feature so I wont need a sway bar or bump stops up front.

I can see changing the gear oil/removing diff cover with that setup will be a bitch for sure

Its actually not bad. There is a removeable plate in the front of the truss to get at the diff cover.

Sweet. Looks like it will be beefy enough for those meats. What exactly do you plan on doing with it? Personally I liked it better on the 36s and 1/2 tons but thats just me. The shear awsomeness of this project has me hooked though.
