Used to do the drag race thing but never this. I have seen a few that look like they have been there. Wink

Great stuff!

I'm thinkin' the trick here is the Barth structure with a tag axle for roll control... perhaps better bumpers... hmm

Hmm... mine's too long... I wonder if anyone could shorten it? ROTFLMAO

I agree with the structure part but still don't know what a "tag axle" is or what GTG stands for Frowner

A tag axle is a dead axle situated behind a drive axle. On some vehicles (such as motorcoaches), the tag axle may be steerable.

GTG: Get together

Hope this helps.

I have seen a lot of tag axle vehicles but have never personally seen a steerable one. I have seen pictures but never the actual thing, sure would like to find one to play with. Smiler

Which Barth are you going to bring to Chattanooga? Tooling Along
