    @Nick Moxley those are very professional looking wheels, I've been keeping track of your posts regarding the 3D printed knobs etc. But please can you tell me how you achieve such professional labels? Are they vinyl stickers?

    Hey there, I am really impressed with your setup and it has inspired me to get started with mine. How wide did the back of your rig end up being (both with and without the traction loss), how far back are the motors from the seat and what did you use for casters in the traction loss section? Any help would be greatly appreciated, I only hope mine comes out even half as good as yours.

    Hey Stephen,

    Thanks, The rig being that i upgraded and modified my old Static rig, ins't exactly ideal for width or length, Now with more room, the Rebuilt frame will be somewhat wider and longer.

    Casters can be any decent quality castors you can get locally, Dont cheap out, or you'll be replacing them at some point.

    Hello @Nick Moxley, where did you get those rear arms (second picture). I would like to incorporate those to my project.
    Thank in advance.

    The Arms are simply 3/4" hollow steel tubes that i had m10 Bolts welded to, then took it to the sander and buzzed it all down to make them look pretty.
