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?

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:

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
