So you could solid mount your bulkhead to your frame and use the shock clearance to raise the bulkhead so your clutches dont hit the tire.


Or, ditch the bulkhead, move the engine over to gain clutch clearance and turn the pipe 90 deg parallel to the frame, basically keep the exhaust connected at the Y pipe (no springs) and turn it upwards so it is centered over the engine
Im not exactly sure what you mean for the first idea. Maybe you can break out your awesome paint skills again and help me out haha.

I like the idea of the pipe over the top of the engine, But i really want to use the bulkhead so everything is already lined up and mounted, Plus i really want to use it since i already cut the damn sled up to use for this project haha. I think ill search around for an axle or something for now.

I think that he means that you should just rotate the pipe so that it passes over the top of the engine rather than to the side.

Ya i got that part, But the first thing he said, track bars or something, Im not really sure what he means by that.

So what type of simulations were these?

Just 3D CAD type simulations, nothing like a FEA analysis. Just something for proof of concept to make sure it moves like its supposed to and not bind
