description  Here is may latest project. I wanted to build a scorcher that had rear trailing arms unstead of the stock rear suspension. So here is my version with a custom chassis, roll cage, dash/console, and custom made rims. I need to find a better axle setup though.

Thanks for the extra pictures! Do the trailing arm really work? I mean the dog bones come out very far. The output shaft (gear box) should be moved forward to avoid this. But they really look awesome.
