Hi, another project that i finally got finished, it's my take on a version of an old 80's mono shock rear suspension that was sold in very small numbers , i can't remember who used to make them but here it is, finally got it fitted and tested. Iv'e fitted it up with some nerf bars and a rear cage, the rear shock pivots on 2 alloy arms that are fitted with stainless bearings and it runs very smooth taking the movement from the rear arms via 2 control rods.
Iv'e taken some photos of a couple of my shells fitted just to show you how close this lot fits under the hood. Iv'e lost track of how long this has taken me 'too long' but i do enjoy a challenge.
Hope you like it, if there is any interest in this i may make some in the future.
Notice the hilux in the background? ,iv'e been working on a rear aluminium cage for slimmy , so thought i would kill 2 birds with one stone and include some pictures for all to see.
Many thanks for reading this and your comments are always appreciated...good or bad...without feedback where are we?
Thanks again john...

Love it! I've just been looking at one of my old CRP cages, wishing it was more like this.. the whole set up looks simply wicked.
Well Done!

Crazy that you made this yourself, although owning a few of your shiny hop ups I'm not surprised.... this what the people want for their SRB's!

Nice.
It looks like a Pit Stop Taipan raced back in the day (1983-84) and held many a title .
I am currently building one at the moment parts are very hard to source .
Stunning work !!!
