Just looked through all the facebook pics, fair play, decent bit of work you've done to get to this stage.

Whats the advantage of the 100" wheelbase compared to a 90? Less overhang or wanted the disco engine?

Going to be some fun when it's all going!

Whats the deal with registering it for the road? Can it be driven as a daily or is it limited mileage or something?

any chance of putting them on picasa or flickr and linking them up here ?

cant see facebook as turkmenistan forbids it .....

100 inch is thought to be the best compromise for stability and weight distribution as an allround challenge truck

if winching then shorter lighter- couple of winch challenges ive gone to its been predominantly 90s or even 88s based on cut down Rangey chassis. - if hill rallying then 100/110 is better.

at the local RTVs its mostly the 100"'s  (or the jimnys/SJs ) that win with the odd 90 there or there abouts.

whats the spec on that tom ? - my 90s in bits in the garage right now , Cant decide what to do about chassis - rebuild or replace, Im building for road going truck that will be adaquate for RTVS and local orienteering evenets rather than full on challenge truck - not really interested in winch challenges

100" is as Trail-Rat says is the most stable for racing.  the 90 is too short so it side slips etc and the 110 is abit to big and gets jammed in tight spaces.  + the main reason was i like a challenge! and this certainly was a challenge!

It has to go through kit car regulations or IVA to be registered then its a full daily driver :P

Spec wise
Galvanized Chassis  ::)
300TDI engine - looking at bigger inter cooler and propane injection for the summer
Side exit After its IVA - No CAT or Silencers  :P
Terrafirma +2" Pro shocks with Bearmach +2" springs
Cobreu Bucket seats
Will have 33" BFGoodrich KM2 Tires

Obviosly will have Diff lockers and other bits added at a future date  :laugh:
