Murdoch Racing, Wind Tunnel Body Works, Springs, Kingpins, Steering Blocks

I got the parts in. Here is a pic with the long travel parts on the left. I used a single stiff (purple) Progressive spring. Only the last 1/8 inch of travel is progressive. This should be perfect as it will only be progressive on hard bumps. I used a 1/8 inch reamer on the steering block to make it free on the kingpin. I beveled and reamed reliefs so the suspension will not bind on full travel.

One item was unexpected. The axles are now in the same plane as the kingpin rather than trailing. This is supposed to make the steering more aggresive. This is probably OK with me on the wide pan car. Not on the narrow pan car.

$2.50 per pair
