    He updated like crazy on facebook but nothing was said about the spindles on there as well. I've seen the prototype in person though, fit and finish is legit.

    Im still working on them. I had to redesign the spindles. I just got the new spindle blocks machined. Its going to be a mid travel kit with my uppers and spindles no total choas arms. Sorry the geometery with tc wasnt to my liking. Heres a few pics

    Not the set he is milling, part of a mid travel kit, his mid travel is 12" though lol. Brian did the gemotry have to do with the horizontal heim on the chaos arms?

    You're gonna need his upper to run it. If memory serves, he scrapped the set that worked with the TC kit. Just man up and do his mid travel kit.

    Did B make them with vertical heims? Pretty sure he only runs horizontals. Or are you looking for some custom shiz?
