First build was 260, I have dialed back to sub 250 for this build. I am looking into an EG33 (3.3Ltr SVX engine) as a possible next step. I briefly considered a Cummins deisel and alison tranny that I had a chance to get but I want to keep the drivetrain as Subaru as possible because the first two questions people ask are what chassis the body is on and what engine is in it. I love being able to answer Subaru for both.

I have noticed that your pics do not download completely after over 13 minutes of downloading with broadband test speed of 467kbps and it's annoying

 

nice color

I am on a 9.95/month 56K dial up and the pics came up for me right away (even with a slow connection I think it was like 41) I would absolutely love to see that beast in person. Scott, Bring it up to NJ.

You need to come out West & kick some Ford/Chev/Dodge/Jeep rump roast!!!! I tend to go low & fast---but I really like the way you put a lot of thought & detail into that RIDE--:headbang::headbang::burnout:

"hmmm.... don't know if anyone said it... but where's the drivetrain???"

 

Rome wasn't built in one day and neither was this BRAT. The diff and Tcase are in, the shafts are being built at the driveline shop and will be ready for pickup Monday.

 

Here is the Front diff:

They will be stressed more for sure, part of the game. I do have a set of new diffs and halfshafts that are from the front of a Nissan, R200s. I was going with the R180 but the 200 gives me airlockers and lower gears. The Nissan half shafts are being shortened and re-splined to fit the re-enforced EA81 outer cups.

The short explaination is Rocket Scientist. My Boeing job title is Scientist II, and my working title is Flight Opperations Specialist Automation/ Recovery. What I do on a planned basis is monitor space vehicle state of health and support testing and integration. We also upload guidance data, payload control software and space craft opperating software. The other side of ops is the recovery of vehicles that have experienced an anomaly that impacts health or service of the space craft. That is sort of the high pressure panic part of the job.
