    It was a bit shocking at first till I remembered its no big deal to weld it back into place.

    do you have a place to do the laser cutting? I have worked with a place locally that does it and had good luck and they ship.

    Actually I used threaded inserts so you just undo a few screws to take the cover off. Other option is riveting which is almost as easy.

    I'm having 100+ parts of different types waterjetted and laser cut pretty soon, sent out to a few local shops waiting to hear back on pricing.

    Very nice. Currently running high roll center with stock swaybar and there's much less body roll in the rear, it's much more responsive feeling.

    Also you'll be happy to know I pulled some fat drifts and it held up great

    Good, good. Less roll is good because I'm going to try running no sway bar. When's the production version coming out? :D

    can this be used in conjunction with a torque arm? or will a poor mans 3 link be the only way to use it?

    It will work with a torque arm (that is the ideal way to do it). We've verified with the people over at Maximum Motorsports that it is compatible with their TA

    It does require either side exhaust or possibly cobra IRS exhaust. We're going to test the IRS exhaust and come up with a kit for an axle limiter to avoid damaging while jacking up the car.

    We're going to have a few different bushing options ranging from dedicated track cars to street performance cars

    Haven't posted these anywhere else yet - renderings of the final version with redesigned propellor, bushing system, and laser cut brackets. Currently waiting to get the brackets back from the laser cutter.

    Oh yeah, and sexy laser-engraved QR code serial number badges!
