Hey Guys,

I'm back from vacation. At the moment there is no adjustment for caster but that is a good idea Wally to have it eccentric to dial in some more. I had a little accident at the race track and need to do some rebuilding to my beetle so I won't be able to take any orders for these for a little while. I will keep you guys posted though.

OK guys, I have been talking to vw1303 about fabricating a run of these arms. I have no idea yet of cost, but would guess with low cost fittings $300 and race ends $600. In looking at rod ends the Aurora's units cost between about $20 each to $100 each for race quality ends. We need four each. So that shows you where it starts with cost and options. Could also sell without the ends and you get your own. I would take orders, with non-refundable deposits of 50% and estimate delivery at less than 4 weeks. I need to get my car ready for a show in November so I am in a hurry. If you are serious and would spend the money now, please let me know. All parts will be CNC'd from Chromoly rod stock and Chromoly tube. You will be required to sign a statement prior to shipping that you agree the parts are for racing use only and carry no warranty or liability on my part. I am not planning on this being a standard business deal and figure if I build 3 sets CNC, 10 sets is not an issue. All fabrication will be done by a shop in Albuquerque, New Mexico that builds parts for the Sandia National Labs. The nuke boys. The shops work is flawless. Let me know if interested...

I'll take a set without rod ends, but does this also include the rollcenter fix?

I hope to only have to do this once so everyone needs to let me know what they want and we will start building at the end of August. I am fine selling the tubes without rod ends. The roll center fix will be for .750 center rod ends. At this point I will probably just build 6 sets and be done. I have three spoken for.

Just so everyone is clear, I do not think this is something that I can sell enough to make it viable to build them all year long. So I will make up some and maybe, but doubt it, just maybe I will make some next year when I get bored and have enough friends here that want a set. I work long hours for most of the year and hope to spend most of my free time finishing two car projects. Commit to me now if you want a set. I will make them, figure out what the cost is and let everyone know. I will charge $50 a set over my cost to mess with it.

And would you all do me a favor and watch LONGMIRE on the A&E network on Monday nights. That's who pays my car habit bills... Good ratings mean Season 3 next year!

Thanks,
Randy

I have decided just to have some built and once I know cost to let everyone know. Then I don't hold money and everyone then waits for fabrication etc. Sometimes I get really busy and things turn to poo in my normal life. So easier to keep everyone happy this way. Should start cutting some parts in two weeks.
