  • In the video when you were installing the front suspension. You kept calling them "Ories." They are O.R.I.'s like the individual letters, not a word. They are really bad add. BTW, the make a reservoir O.R.I. as well and it adds 3 stages of damping. It makes them perform like a 5 way By-pass with internal bump stop. They also make an upgrade kit to add the reservoir to the regular model. If I were you, I would do the O.R.I. struts in the rear as well, and when you do the upper mounts do them up higher so you can run a longer version. You want to run them at 50% of the stroke when it's just sitting there. So it can go up or down the same amount of travel. You don't need the reservoir version unless you plan to go hitting the whoops and really going out and rallying it. If you are then I would definitely do the reservoir front and rear cause not only do they keep the oil separated from the nitrogen, but the reservoir adds 2 more stages to the dampening for a total of 5 stages! They act like a coilover, reservoir shock, 5way bypass shock, sway bar, limit straps and bump stop all in one unit! Anyway, awesome build man! Can't wait to see the videos of you out wheeling it!

  • MATT OR RUDY!!! Was wondering if either of you had ever pondered having a roof rack on your corvair build that you could place camera mounts.. having so much success with U-Tube videos,,,permanently having quick release mounts might expedite capturing video... Just a thought!!! Your fan Tc from Nevada

  • I have Never been impressed by a Corvair, I have seen some decent ones, but you guys have the coolest one By Far. In a car show, I would stop and give extra attention to the on y'all built, but to see one doing recovery, and being used.... stop the bus, I just soiled my Jean's! Great Job, you nailed this build in every way, and deserve more then what's coming! And to add, you are using demo derby stuff, as proof of toughness, Y'all just had a grade school kid dunk on Shaq, kinda moment....LMAO

  • Mattracks: they would be good for snow and that brown powder you call sand (holy crap that stuff is bad where you are) have you given them any thought? probably can't use them on the road legally and they cost way too much money. I bet Fab Rats can make their own Matt - Tracks :)

  • Matt, at the end you said "I just have to do the steering really quick" , is it going to have "Quick Steering"? Seems like Quick steering might be desirable on a recovery rig when you get into tight spaces.

  • I find even more ads on the newer vids compared to the older ones. Two maybe three would be okay, but 4 + in a 18 minute video is pushing it. You have good content but whiling to un-subscribe to avoid ads.

  • I may have someone build just the body and wiring of a classic c10 or I'm in between that or like an 02' model camera and then throw the motor, trans, axels and all that jazz in myself. If it's built correctly there should be no issue getting my LS3 in there and my $2,000 focal system with a little customizing I think it'll all fit.

  • In the early 70's, I rode to school in mom's '62 Lakewood wagon (when it would start). When she could finally afford a new car she gave the old 'Vair to the neighbor that had kept it together with duct tape and bailing wire. He cut the body off, welded a crude cage in place and turned the kids loose in it. This thing is beautiful.
