1410 isn't stronger than 1350 in my opinion. Same size caps and bearings and larger trunion. I suppose I could argue it's weaker but allows more angle and larger tubing. Just a thought.
That's not what the load ratings charts tell us. I never really understood why anyone runs the 1350 unless 1410 just isn't available for a particular config. 1410 is stronger and has more operating angle.

Milled by silent team member Bob Rice: Presented to Jason last night! Then they went to work! Bling 1.

Bob milled special personalized fairleads for years. Typical of Bob's work and the teams all-in personality.

The car looked phenomenal, and worked even better, especially considering it had zero drive time before Friday!!!!!!!!

I said the same thing to Jason Saturday afternoon. He replied that it was not even close to "right" and hurt when it landed... Could have fooled me, as he was hauling the mail, and appears to be sticking very well...

What was the story on the trailing arms with no wobblestoppers?

The car looked great, I can't wait to see it dialed in.

What a crazy race weekend or testing weekend. I'll be honest by the time we ran our heat race Friday I was thinking Jason was crazy to want to fix the car and come back Saturday. I think I speak for the whole team when I say we are exhausted. It's been a lot of late nights the last month and a half. When we got back up there and ran lcq and won it, it made it all worth it! I couldn't believe we almost had the race won, but in my eyes the team got a win when we saw an untested car was wining car worthy. I'm proud to be part of Rage 4th and I can't wait to get the car ready for the next race.

The front suspension on his new car provides 40 degrees of steering angle and uses angled lower control arms to maximize ground clearance, all while cycling nearly 20 inches of wheel travel with Fox 2 ½-inch diameter coilovers and huge 3 ½-inch 7 tube bypass shocks.

I think that is the first time I've seen an IFS Ultra 4 car claim to have that much steering and wheel travel combined. Is that correct or an error in the DrivingLine article.
This....
