Go Big to Go Small

We’re working on a new IFS bulk head. Changes go beyond just cosmetic, this bulk head ends up being quite a bit larger than the existing one. Sometimes you have to go big to go small. More details to follow.

Prototype Weld-On High Steer Arm

August 11th2017

We’re having some fun with a new weld-on high steer arm design for our Pro Series Knuckles. The video above and the few photos below do a better job than my typing, so I’ll leave it at that. Hope you enjoy this project as much as we did, with that have a great weekend (and best of luck to all Ultra4 racers at Dirty Turtle!).

After machining, this guy will make its way to the furnace for some heat treating action, then back for some final higher precision machining.
