I'm all for people building they'er own stuff
they'er is a misspelling of they're which was the wrong they're, their, there. just because its the interwebs doesn't mean the degradation of the english language is "trivial". some people enjoy not having to read at a 3rd grade level.They're isn't a misspelling of their, I just used the wrong word. Did someone pee in your cereal this morning or do you just enjoy pointing out trivial things to make yourself feel like a big man?
mine's shorter, i already know that.Wow this went from a helpful conversation to a shit talking competition. The only person that "wins" is charlie sheen. So unless y'all are gonna have a duel lets end the dick swinging competition for now.
thats what i wanted to say, but didn't.they'er is a misspelling of they're which was the wrong they're, their, there. just because its the interwebs doesn't mean the degradation of the english language is "trivial". some people enjoy not having to read at a 3rd grade level.
on a race truck, i could see fatigue being an issue. but i doubt the OP will be out racing every chance he gets, if at all. 4130 would be fine and would hold up for the life of the truck.I am working with a few professors at Sac State on which materials to use. I've come to the conclusion that, even though Chromoly is wayyy stronger, it doesn't have as long of a life span. So what I'm trying to say is that unless your on a professional, sponsored team and scrapping the frame/suspension every two years at the longest, it's vulnerable for failure because of fatigue.
So what this means is stronger the material=brittleness=fatigue=short life= $$$$. This goes for any material that is stronger. It seems as if standard hot rolled steel is the best way to go.
Cold rolled means its just cut and rolled super precisely to your specifications. But if your going to weld it, there will be some slight warpage which defeats the purpose of cold rolled haha. But maybe I'm getting cold rolled and flat bar confused....
