Nice Job.

Are you going to make a fiberglass body or metal??
What kind of engine is on it. In the photoshop pics, looks like a VW but its not your pics I guess. Just for a few fun rides o serious dune racing?
I really hope to see more pics of this

Congrats,

That's how it is set up now, the initial settings could be easily changed, the frame brackets aren't welded on yet.
How do these measurements sound?
Realized I'm pretty late on this, but anyways..
Camber:
Ride Height- My off road car is around -2* at Ride height, seems to handle well on dirt.
