Re: The Ulimate XL
I am in the process of re-doing the rear end. It is going to be a trailing arm set up. The rear end of my car was fabricated crooked and it was imposible to align. It is my opinion that racing one of these things stock is a mistake. I have rebuilt and changed almost every piece on the car. The front ends geometry was really a mess. Hence the reason the car the car won't steer and lifts one of the wheels off of the ground.
The car has many good parts and was a good starting point but, much work needs to be done to make this thing reliable for off road recreational use much less racing. It probably holds up well in the sand. I have not had it in the sand yet. I actually have only driven it twice between tear downs.
I did not want to misslead any one. This was a regular Revolt that I bought over a year ago and made it my version of a XL.
As far as modifying your cars, I would be glad to help you with any information that you may want. I live in Las Vegas and have an incredible fabricator that loves to live outside of the box when it comes to building cars.
And by the way, the only way that this thing will ever race is if I sell it or it goes in time trials. Not head to head. I have over 700 hours in building this thing and thousands of dollars. I don't need some Chucklehead crashing into me and sending me back to the shop. It's just not worth it.
Anyway, I have yet to meet another Redline owner and would like to get together sometime.
