    Bout time we see this awesome piece of Portal power beauty on here. I know you have a some pics of the front steering setup on the other site but would mind taking one or two more, a little closer in on how the drag link is attached to the steering bar (one from wheel to wheel)?

    I know I know. I been meaning to do a thread over here, then RCC went down.

    Yes I can get more detailed pics of my steering setup. Although I'm thinking about making new steering setup.
