This is great, can't believe I'm just seeing this now. My buddy has a bugeye wagon that he bought for almost nothing that I told him I would buy when he runs it into the ground. This could be on the table.

I was supposed to go to that rally cross you were at. Iím only about 30 minutes from there. I had a friend there that snapped a few pics of it and i instantly regretted not going. Looked like it was a good time.

Looks like you built a runner!

How is the ride and handling since the back end is a little lighter now?

Well ill be there tomorrow. for your sec chance.
She is pretty solid, Built it to take a beating.
She is very stiff & still handles good.
But the only time i felt the rear end is on the Dragon I could feel it step out just a lil bit.
I am picking up some BC coilover to help with the handling.

Sorry to see this, glad your wife was OK.
Doubt you can fix that chassis, not sure if you want to build another one.

How have I missed this project up until now?!!

Are you also a Locost guy, seeing the intro image to your vid? I looked around your youtube and didn't see any locost content.
