    Honestly these axles are going to be straighter than they were to start Didn’t even need to gauge them to see that they weren’t straight at all Machining the actual axles takes forever but progress is progress

    Lathe is on the way to pump out axles😂 It was all about the same cost unfortunately so I picked having a new tool again. Also finished cutting everything for the front diff mount. The Napa axles do exist so that’s what I’m going to do. Should be able to get 5 more inches of travel out of the...

    With the 3d scanner it Depends on size There are two modes The “feature” and used with markers is the best for larger objects and higher accuracy You can get away with body More complicated explanation The revpoint relies on volume over accuracy Nicer scanners are inherently way more...

    When you don’t have time to work on your real life truck so you start making your real life truck in a video game. Keeping the recipe the same Except I am not sure if I want to add my own suspension in here seems like a lot of work but I guess that has never stopped me before
