IFS Formula Toy?
« on: Jul 07, 2010, 08:21:07 PM »
Has anyone ever seen or heard about a IFS FT?,.....I am thinking about doing something for Sand. The IFS should travel smoother and yet still can be used for minor rock crawling. I want to keep the weight and height as low as possible.

What your thoughts?

It is never to soon too accept Jesus into your life, but in a moment, it
could be too late.

I've thought of trying that, you can always SAS it if you don't like it.

i think it would be best with a long travel, but then it kills being stock...... to me, it just doesnt seem there is a lot of articulation in the stock ifs form

I'd definitely give it a try.  I ran IFS for several years before I did an SAS, and was mostly happy with its rock crawling preformance.  And like rocksurfer said, you can just SAS it if it doesn't work out

IFS will out rally a straight axle with ease so for just rippin' around it should be fine.

Here's a discussion/build that is along the same lines of what you're thinking, it's not an actual f-toy but looks like it will be similar: http://www.pirate4x4.com/forum/showthread.php?t=887387

Interesting idea. I like it. I would go with that new ifs currie 9inch center section. That thing would work great in sand and still take a serious beating in the rocks
