What are your thoughts on the drum disconnect? I have been thinking about buying/building one of those...

The standard free-spool on the winch is more or less useless because you have to turn all the gears around, i.e. very heavy to free-spool.
I have always powered out my line because it's easier.

With the air free-spool I can free-spole with the line pinched with only to fingers, that is how easy the drum turns.

That saves a lot of time and also saves my co-driver when we are competing.
As a bonus my youngest son (8 years) can easily handle the winch line when we are to an off road meet.

Yes and no

If i do it would be treated lika an amatuerbuild and will get a new title with year 2018 on with tax and everything

But I can repare the frame I have as long as Ii roughly follow the original frame
Shape and design

Any big changes planned for this rebuild, or just taking everything back to where it was before?

The plan for the moment is:
* Toyota LJ70 axles with ARB front and rear
* Three link with panhard front
* Coil springs with shocks
* Toyota steering box
* Same Engine and trans as before
* New tube fenders at front looking like the standard fender but with more raise
* Frame connectors for the cage
* New fuel tank so I will pass race inspection (changed regulations)

And of course it should stay low as before

If time allows I will do radius arms with panhard at the rear and 5 speed gearbox
But the time is the deciding factor for the rear.

I'm curious, why would you want to choose to do a radius arm rear suspension?

Long time no see...

After King Of The Hammers I just didn't felt for the projekt until beginning of July.

But the projekt is not dead and yesterday it stood on it's wheels by it self:)
It was a really good feeling 11 month after I started disassembly the car.
