Wasted 35 bucks on the cutting board chassis :evil:. Live and learn

The Wheel base is almost a full 1" too short, the spacer flex, and it looks goofy with the skinny chassis. I'm moving everything back over to the Slant Belly chassis.

Cowboycrawler, Did you sleeve your links yet? They will slide like butter over rocks with the stainless.

What did you guys use to sleeve the 8-32 all-thread links. Is this something you can get at Lowe's ?
