    Lamonster pipe baffle

    The workman ship of the Lamonster pipe is excellent. As a welder I am totally aware of the difficulty in producing this level of fabrication. The pipe is totally worth the price being charged. ...

    braking

    I'm feeling better about braking now. But it is better to know for sure. Nothing has been built that can not fail. That's why we wear two parachutes and those have been known to fail also.

    Good but will it last

    We like the pipe but as a retired welder I have to wonder about the life span of the thin material it is made from. I would hate to be 1000 miles from home and have the pipe fail. The fab and tig...

    I just got a message suggesting that toe may be something to consider. Guess I may take a closer look at the suspension geometry. You do not need a laser to properly adjust a suspension.
