Nice project!

Time to get a basketball up inside the fender and push out the dents. ;) And/or lighten up the inner fenders to lose some weight, and hole-saw the rear inner quarters while you're at it.

Just FYI, I don't think you need to consider airing down at all in a mud-bog/ mud race. I'd run full pressure and full throttle, and the 16.5s will be problem free.

With the transmissions delivered it was time to get back to work on the axle swap. Once the axles were in place it was time to consult Dan from TracTractor Offroad. It was time to figure out the steering and I was clueless. He made a few suggestions and here it is.

I will admit it is not quite the way he would have done it, but he pointed me in the general direction.

Got any more pics of this?

Yeah, I didn't know if he had any other pics of it, though. I'll probably end up buying histeer arms for the trail scout, but am getting ideas for getting it rolling with minimal cost. I'm still in the parts aquisition & planning stage, so I'm getting ideas.

Histeer arms would probably be the more proper and safer alternative to this death-link steering setup :tt2:

Sorry, that is the only pic I have. What are you planning on running? I used fullsize Dodge axles. There alot of people more knowledgable about this than myself. Decide what kind of axles you want to run and then check with someone on here who has done it. I didn't have the money to do the steering right the first time, but i am glad we changed it. It handles alot better now.

It's a fullsize DRW Chevy D60, so there's nowhere on the passenger knuckle to attach a draglink without a histeer arm. I know the right way is histeer, and I'll probably end up doing that to start with, but I'm just looking at my options. The intent is to get the Scout on the trail with the minimum amount of money spent, while keeping it safe and avoiding buying things twice. I am running histeer on my daily driver, in the link in my signature.

Looking good, you've built a cool Scout!

Went to Newport today to race. The track is very short, 80 feet not 200 feet like we are used to.

Any how we didn't do very good. The Scout has always seemed to come alive mid track and here in Newport, mid track is the finish line. :taz: We did get to race another fellow Binder though.

He beat us, but we will see him again someday on a longer track. Here is a link to the video of the race.

With the 2009 Drag Season right around the corner I have made a few changes. I added a rear aluminum radiator with dual fans and I dropped the old fuel tank and added an 8 gallon fuel cell. Note the very cool silicon flex hoses.

She is running great. The Carb King (Mike Mayben) made a stop last weekend and we went through a complete test and tune session. Pink will roast all 4 tires on dry pavement. :punk:

It turns out our electrical issue last year was nothing more than a bad batch of starters, remanned starters are not always the way to go. I did learn something new in this process, the 1994-2001 Dodge starters are half the size and have a whole lot more torque. They come with a lot higher price tag, but well worth the investment.
