    Cutting brakes

    Speaking of push vs pull on cutting brakes, I went with "push" partially due to packaging. The problem I had was getting good pressure at full push because the handles were too far away and my arm was at full extension. So I cut and bent them so they are closer. I can now put full pressure...

    Cutting brakes

    I buy that completely. I guess it would be better to say that when all 4 tires have traction, I can't tell the difference in turning. I understand the "leaning into the wind" but if both my front tires have good traction, they follow the turning radius of the vehicle. Otherwise, they would...

    Cutting brakes

    I agree. There have been times that I have gotten frustrated because it doesn't seem to work and other times it works great. I've come to realize that if no tires are slipping, it doesn't work, it simply follows your turning radius. That said, there are times when it works - it works amazing...

    I know. Been there twice and hoping to spend 2-3 weeks there next April. Maybe some locals might wheel with me. :) I hope for rear steer at some point but it won't happen in the next year. (unless the wife wins the lottery)

    Really love how this turned out. Nice job. But I gotta say, I'm still more jelly of your local terrain (vs here) than your car. :)

    I just saw the element extinguisher last month for the first time. I like it........... I have 3 large extinguishers on my buggy and they take up a lot of room. But like Woody said, the rig is expensive. One passenger side on the back, one driver side on the back and one between the seats. I...

    I need to check out the Mityvac. My cheap Harbor Freight brake bleeder doesn't seem to be doing the trick on my cutting brakes. They work OK but I need to apply pedal brake pressure first, apply the hand brake and let off the pedal to get really good corner braking.

    Great trip! I did Captain in 2011 (day 1 of our trip) and broke my bell housing so we were done. Went again in 2017 and did the same trails as you. (Hal Johns, Kong, T-back & Bikini) We had saved Captain till Thursday but as it turned out we had a major repair on T-Back the day before and...

    Nice. We just routed silicone tube front to back on my buddy's Goatbuilt and it takes up way more space that we would have anticipated. @JohnnyJ

    I have a bunch of left over SS bolts. Eventually I will change them over but too many other things to worry about now. At some point I need to start a thread with all the changes I have made to my "turn key" buggy. LOL
