Well that's been obvious for some time now. The pit seems to be filling with R2's, it would be hard for a non believer to not see the light.

Here are some pics for you guys. You can see the links I made to go from the steering bellcrank posts to the front camber turnbuckles. These take away the slop in the castor blocks. Got this idea from MikeR.

And here's a shot from the back end of the car. You can see the offset pivot balls. I'll have my clamping wheel hexes tomorrow. But you can see how stock the car is here..
