Was planning on just shortening the shaft length.

Thats what clayton did to his, with a similar shift knob, except his is just all chrome. Shift feels great and is pretty much exactly what I'm looking for, and its cheap. Yeah, I know its ghetto as hell to do it that way but w/e.

Don't have the funds for that knob i want anyway right now so i'm not touching that for a while.


Also,

This is Win

Your school should have solidworks on their Lab computers.
it sucks working in the lab but you've only got a couple weeks left so just deal with it

The newest version? I can haz copy please?



Also this is how I've spent the last 2 lunch breaks. Managed to calculate out and design a front suspension with 13" of travel and only 1* of camber change throughout (based on the shock's I want to use it actually has 14-16" of useable travel but I think 13" is about all I'll need.
Tomorrow I'm starting the steering.

Also arm shape is not finalized I'm using 2 different Ideas I had for Top arms.

lower arms will be either a triangulated design or a laser cut welded boxed arm setup.
