Question Fully Independent Rock Bouncer

Turbo LS, 43 SX tires, 9" Center Sections, Hummer Portals. Think it will hold up to Rock Bouncing?

Im guessing its not complete? I see no front CVs or a driveshaft.

Looks and sounds mean as hell. He needs some RCV shafts.

I may be missing something, but are hummer portals really up to that task? And to mount them and give up the ground clearance you gain completely seems like a real waste.

And why a pinions brake instead of inboard discs on both sides?

So many things I'm curious about.

It seems pretty low. I think it's going to belly up on a lot of rocks

Older than that. I first saw it right after I moved to LA (99) and it was already straight axle swapped. Then Dustin bought it and beat the crap out of it for years.

I could be mistaken though. I cant remember what I had for supper on Monday.

The welds on that thing look like smashed ass, everywhere I could see. Horrible if a shop is using that as a promotional rig.

I didn't buy Walker's independent rig...he sold me the rig he had before the IFS / IRS rig. He had some good ideas but never really took any time to try them and tune them. He did end up straight axling his independent suspension rig 2/3 of the way thru the season. Went from dead last one week with independent, then won the next week with straight axle.

Agreed, I don't see the point of the hummer portal knuckles since it doesn't look like it helps much the way it is designed. Seems like a lot of extra effort. I guess being a two-gear portal you can run normal axles with the reversed drivetrain.

I must be thinking of the strange trailing arm setup then. I remembered it being screwey.

i'm guessing if you mount them like that it will reduce the cv angle from diff to hub. the suspension would be able to drop farther before all those shitty ass welds let the whole thing fly apart.

That's exactly what it is, so he will snap off between 1 and 6 wheels every time it comes off the trailer.
