Whoops -- sorry, Glen.  Podunk has indeed been in touch with me -- and this is the way he's going to be presenting his stuff.  It's sort of an experiment to see if it works instead of a regular ad.  I guess I'm at fault, if anyone, for not making a notice at the top of the thread, telling everyone what's going on.

Mea Culpa.

I can testify that the correct scrub radius hubs Terry made for my old RATICAL were the MAJOR reason it quit hunting its way to the finish line like a Roadster!!!!!!!!!  grin

It's all about being short.

First class work, Terry.  All fits nicely.  I'll do some assembly this weekend and post up the pics.

Oh, and yes, I found the steering arms in the basement, so you can stop tearing your shop apart . . .   embarassed

An upside to this operation is that it gave me a slightly closer to 0 scrub radius - about as close as one can get and still clear the inside fenderwells.

Thanks, Terry - see you in Indianapolis!
