Well I have begun to build me a NEW Super Modifed. Its gonna be a slow build. It is legal for ARMA in 09 one of thier new classes. IT will be legal for the WOO candian club. I plan on going up their at least once a year. I mounted the rear axle and an adjustable wedge I want to to try to use. Not sure If I can or will but its there for now. This will be an unconventional build, as per ARMA sanctioned class build in 3 ways. It will be 2" off the ground, 42" inches wide and have an offset of 4" meaning center of frame to left outside sidwall 19" and right side 23". It will have a vertical motor, 700 trans, standard type clutch and for now I will use mowers tires on the rear and Kart grooved on the front. Below are pics of the start.

as you can see the axle and wheels on to double check hieght



Here are the new wheels. I am not 100% liking the hub. Reckon I will get with Carroll about making some beefier ones.



This is a look from the rear. 1.85" ride hieght. Not much but its a start.




Front axle beam is on finally


Rear view of the seat in and rear fender support


Side view of the seat in place just sitting there


Rear fenders widened 4"


Here is a closer look of the fenders.


Side look at fenders still have alot to do to get them done

George,
Looks good, like the wedge idea!  But concerned with the bolt for making the adjustment.  I don't think that bolt will take the abuse. 
Heres an idea.  Make a cam for the wedge to hold the wedge in place and make a positive locking handle.   Like a shifter type.  Move the handle that goes into a slot and can't come out unless you unload the wedge and pull the handle over.

I assume you are planning on adjusting it on the fly is why you are using a bolt.

Just a thought!

No worries I scratched the idea of using it on this chassis My size required a seat so wide I don't have room for it. I am going to applyi it to another chassis I am planning. The leaft rear has the least pressure. It worked on a dirt kart well with the bolt. I know there is a difference in weight and trak types but I think it will work. Just no on this chassis.

It  is looking good need some more pics I know you been working on it lol.
Have to tell you George you do do a great job building them.
You know I am so impressed with your build after racing it with you, that
I am building one from your build form. I hope it handles half as good as
yours did. Course I won't have a Indian under the hood, wouldn't mind it
but won't fit the budget. Hope things are good at home take care.
more pics though and advice
Thanks

Thanks Rusty...It was a pleasure having you drive it and racing with you. You ain't half bad. I promise if you follow my build it will drive well. And tech advice is free. So if ya get stick just holler. Remember a GOOD chassis will make any motor look good.

As for my build I have got the seat cut into the fenders now and will get pics tomorrow. Havn't been working as hard as I should been under the weather a bit.
