Latham’s buggy runs a pair of 3-ton front-load Rockwell axles that were picked from a tomato harvester. The front axle, shown here, has been fitted with a Detroit NoSPIN locker and a homemade pinion brake. The front axle is located by a triangulated four-link system made from 2-inch-diameter, 0.375-inch-wall material with QA1 1.25-inch rod ends. The axle is suspended and damped via King 16-inch-travel remote-reservoir coilovers and King 4-inch-travel bumpstops. Steering is hydraulic and includes homemade high-steer arms and Evolution Machine tie rods.
