While I was watching the video I was hoping you were going to push down the suspension I think you made a video earlier of the suspension moving, but I felt the camera angle would have been optimal in this latest video to see the suspension in action!!

Looking forward for a video of it running with that suspension soaking all thebumps!!What kind of spring rate does ithave ? Isit more on the soft side ?

And the brake blends very well with the assembly. Congrats again.

Suspension is on soft side ,spring (compression ) and oil (damping ).

Think about the video. ( see my answer to your post )

Hi Vass, long time since I spoke to you mate. What are you doing these days?
Seems the large scale builders have died out...... I wonder where all you guys are now? And what you're up to.

Cheers, Mudgy

It seems like lots of forums got more quiet in the last years.. Lots of people say the action is now mostly on facebook groups.

But also I personally have not worked on large scale builds in the last few years, I still have the large Subaru Impreza build on standby, have not touched it in forever. I have been doing custom smaller scale, 1/10 mostly (a custom rwd escort mk2).

I have been mostly around scale4x4rc or scalebuildersguild recently. Smaller scale is easier to scratch build in some aspects, parts dont need to be as strong and materials easier to cut etc.
