Looking for Hot Rod/ Gasser parts, not made by Reliable..

Recommended Posts

He seems to be the only guy I can find that makes ladder bars, and straight axles.

any ideas?

After looking for the same thing myself and searching many of my kits, to find nothing adequate, I checked a few tutorials on here. From turnable straight axel, to springs, to shocks.

I decided to scratch build everything. You check details of my progress in the build section..Flintstone Flyer II x3

Seek out Drag City Castings. The owner, Ed, is a member here. So you can message him directly if you like. He does make some drag associated items, including ladder bars. He has just recently brought back his line of racing hoods, and he has a ton of wheels that would be gasser appropriate. 

Here'a link to Drag City Castings Fotki page. His casting work is excellent.

Hey Rob. Over the years there have been a lot of tales of woe regarding RR.

I've wanted to buy stuff he's offered but been turned off by his unreliability. Pun intended.

I second Drag City for the ladder bars, and Shapeways  or fabrication for the axle.

The issue with fabbing your own is in the springs, which are harder to do.

Not to be a jerk, but just do a search here for Reliable Resin. Several threads about them. And it's more than just a couple dissatisfied customers. It's a definite trend formed after years of poor customer service

There not as hard as you think, this gasser build has expanded my abilities beyond anything I've done before.

But all the inspiration comes from guys on here!

Well, you calling it easy doesn't convince me that it is. I've seen your work, and I don't come near your level of expertise at fabrication. That said, I am fabbing my own springs for my AFX Mustang.

Thanks, but several months ago I would have said the same to someone else. Just experiment and watch builds others do for inspiration.
