Cubmobile builders manual & secrets to speed !

Post by sporty » Sat Jul 05, 2008 9:02 pm

So i have already posted some pics and info on alignment tools and other misc info.

Is there something out there you would like to ask me ? or know about ?

I am debating adding some more info- pictures from the manual I offer.

But I really need to know what people are looking for or wanting to know, with the Cubmobile.

See other posts in this topic to link to my 60+ page manual.

I used all thread and nuts for the axles. My wheels wer ball bearing so it worked well. I used those metal half thing I found at the store. I believe they are used to hold conduit to the wall but worked here. I dont have many places to find stuff around here so it was a easy way to get it going and was also cheap.

I'd be interested in learning more about that brake concept.
