Not sure we really disagree David. For a race car/Truck, there is a bit more to it than throwing something in. I personally don't have much interest in race cars and generally don't have a desire to drive my crawlers down the highway at 70MPH. If I want to go fast with my trucks, I do it with them on a gooseneck and a nice tow rig.

I have designed many Full hydro setups and have worked with Tom the founder of AGR and soon after PSC so I know what you are trying to express. But I am not sure that a custom rig with an A-arm front end, rover axles and full hydro is going to be a race car or drive the highway at 70+ But I could be wrong, it happens like once a year or so.

I thought aloharover wanted to put this on a road driven rig? At least that's what I was responding too.

I'm lost WTFE. The whole hydro thing came from the front a-arm deal and how you needed hydro to eliminate the steering issues. Maybe I slept through a post or two.

I remember seeing your rig at Chile Challenge back in the day, it's looking good Out of curiosity what made you ditch the portals, especially as there seems to be a renewed interest in portals recently? Were the Mog axles too much of a limitation, or have you changed your focus to include more high-speed stuff?
