Re: The Burb a long time coming

Lots of machinists out there that could handle that kind of job. Check out Mike Curtis of Curtis Speed, Jason Britz on Instagram @jason62702, Rad Machining on Instagram @radmachining, or EVOD Industries

Re: The Burb a long time coming

Picked up a Flex-A-Lite Extruded Tube Core Radiator and Dual Fan Combo to hide under the SelfMade radiator cover ... the product reviews seem good, also came with their multi-speed fan controller built in...

Re: The Burb a long time coming

And solved that transmission / tight body mod ... made the frame and body real tight but when we lowered the body the 700R4 got crowded so I thought maybe high hump for clearance just need to remember to change the carpet selection

Re: The Burb a long time coming

i have the dominator 2500s up front because my cupped arms are 8 1/4" pipe. i had 2600s up front but it seems super close to touching when aired out. im tearing everything apart to paint the front clip and im thinking of trying to put some 2600s back in there after grinding the cup edge down (something i should of done the first time).

was hoping those you pulled out were ss7's, those seem to be nice bags and dont balloon out.

Re: The Burb a long time coming

Ya, I need to get a lift on order so I can pull the body back off and do a little work on the rear of the chassis for a more level aired out, probably cut on the frame a bit

Wow, this is a high intensity build. I'm sorry to see that covid got in the way of your plans. Have you been able to move any of it forward since your last post?
