understandable. i found a picture of a guy that completely incased his b2 tank, looks pretty good. but nothing like a real cell.

Ive got some Bad news. It is that there most likely will not be any more updates to next year. Im moving to Vermont till December for a Internship. Im also Going to SEMA in November in Vegas, so between the two I will not have any time to get home to CT to work on it. The good news is that Im working at a Machine shop operating a CNC Machining Center. LSP-VT.com is the company Im working for. After I learn all the machines Ill have free access to all of them. They also have a Mig/tig/arc setups and a Plasma capable of 3/4" cuts. So who knows I may try and make some stuff up while im there.

fine we can do it from state with most gays to state with least gays.

Minnesota = gayest, texas = second gayest just cause of the huge population, and we prefer animals to other men in alaska.

So here's what ya do.....learn all you can about CV shafts and whatnot....then start makin prototype extended CV parts and whatnot for stronger axles for the SLA guys who are lookin for more flexy/stronger CV shafts.....look at that, I just made you a million over the next couple years.

Oh btw, yur gonna have to change the title to 3 yrs in the making when it's all said and done.....

I already own bendtech, but im still learning how to use it so for now, I just have paper designs. I would love to see some more progress too, lol. but its extremely hard right now between work and living 3 hours from the truck. And not to mention Im low on funds, I have a bunch of stuff for sale that is pending so I should be able to order my coilovers soon.
