I just finished mine the other day and ran it today.
I used "Shoe Goo" to secure the sidepods in a few spots (love this stuff, dries like hard rubber) and also the mirrors attatch with screws and those are the only ones I used.
It's holding up great.

This is what I was thinking of:
F60 + axle & diff from Pro + Shimizu or Ride rubber
I already have a TRF shock and Al or Ti steering links I can use on it.
For anybody that has gone down this road, does this sound reasonable? Am I thinking about this correctly?
If I'm not mistaken, carpet likes the stiff chassis and asphalt likes the flex.
That is how I've always set up my car.
Carpet and asphalt are opposites.
Carpet gives mondo traction, too much, so adding flex to the chassis would add even more.
Stiffen it up so it will "slide" and rotate rather than "stick" and traction roll.
Kinda like a sway bar effect, add sway bar and lose traction on that end.
Am I right?
Asphalt is usually loose in the rear so add flex to soften up the rear and plant it more and create a push then dial steering back in a little at a time.
Gotta have the PERFECT tires tho or nothing is gonna work.
