I have 3 other springs rates being made for the shocks. This will give a good amount of adjustment for any condition. I hope to have them shortly.

I am also going to be adding new holes on the arms where the up travel screw and ballstud mount. I am going to allow for them to be swapped for location. This will allow you to adjust leverage points. The further the ballstud is from the pivot of the cantilever, the softer the spring rate. This way you will have 2 spring rate options per set of springs with that now being 6 spring rates instead of 3.

The shocks are pretty much sitting in place. I am making quick release pins for them.

Beautiful machine work. Design looks great too.

I just want to make sure Im understanding this correctly... but the shock cantilever is actuated via that little "tab" looking thing that is sticking thru, correct?

That is almost correct. There is a ballstud that is mounted on that tab and that actuates the cantilever.

I am glad you guys like it. I want to offer a very precise and functional race car with a coolness factor also. The pod is pretty cool too. That comes next when i get the front completed.

Hey Jason I want this NOW! LOL! Would I be able to use this frontend assembly on my existing copperhead 10 or would I need to upgrade to the whole new car when it gets developed.

Jason, that is a thing of beauty! I am really liking how the shock angles follow the body line so there is no interference. I can not wait till this car is done. By far the coolest front end I have ever seen on a pan car. Keep up the good work.

Thanks alot buddy. Im really glad you like it. I know it is hard for people to accept change but i am glad that all of you guys are willing to try something new. I love pan car racing and really want to help these cars evolve.

I am doing what you guys asked for, im going all out and not holding anything back.
