    Well in one of my earlier posts i showed pic of the top of a mine drift that is 100’ underground i found when i got down on bedrock,  so we pulled all the timbers out and sluiced the gravel around it and the rest of the cut, did very well!! Thought id post a few pic of pulling the drift apart with my son Carter and my best friend John.

    I think i know a guy here where i get my motors done. He does 2stroke cranks all the time, he just finished one for my son on a ktm dirtbike. Ill ask him and let u know.  
    I also have a crank from a blue582 i need rebuilt, got a motor from a guy in a trade and the crank has all the oilpump drive teeth peeled off and needs new bearings.

    They show how much i enlongated the slot in the strut for suspension travel, and the assembiled strut with spring i went to and the cups i made to accept the new springs i changed to. 
    And yes my gear is taller b 4” at the firewall, and the tire spread was made little wider to accomidate the 4” up at firewall. 
    Far as what else i want,  a better step design to help u get in, but i may do a step like Atlee Dodge sells for a supercub ect, biggest is i think the bottom of the spring strut where mounts to gear leg should b mounted on the end of the axel not just above it, like supercub gear, but that will also mess up some guys that r running 3/4” axels, i run 1.5” axels on both my KF1 so that wouldnt affect me.

    Anygear will bend up ur plane if its not right for ur type of flying. I can tell u i had an OPPS on my first landing on this gear, hit hard enough took the headset off my head and into my lap, bounced and hit again, didnt bend anything. Shook me up bad enough i had to get out of the plane for 30min to stop shaking and relax. 
    Id buy another set, but have a few more ideas to suite my wants.
