    What made him go for the three axle?

    It's tough to keep the tires from losing all their tread on a three axle.

    Oops, nice job. The comment has nothing to do with your work of course, it's just the idea of a three axle for a hot shotter.

    he asked for it, i built it.... i tried to talk him into a tandem dual set up, but he absolutely wanted a tri-axle...... (i would have MUCH rather set up tandem instead of tri..... lining up 3 sets of springs is no fun chore!!!)
