    check my build
    its a 2.5 inch stroke, and the angle of the pic makes it look close, but it has quite a bit of clearance before hitting the strike pad. im not worried, i think i can push it up like another .5 inch and it will still stop my shock from bottoming out.

    I was going to say this. If its tight enough to hold in place without the sleeve it can squeeze the body of the bump and bind the piston inside. If you have the bump slid up all the way the piston will not travel down to the bottom bolt anyway though, your friend may have just needed to loosen the upper pinch bolt a little

    ^Best solution

    i think that truck may be 4x4, so the tranny is off set so the transfer case and front drive shaft can be center with the center mounted front diff. Same with pro4 trucks, i believe.

    I'm guessing it has something to do with a mid engine/tranny set up and geometry on the rear suspension.

    just because he's running a special type of transmission doesnt mean it has to be offset. It's offset probably because he wants something to be center. The only thing that needs to be center that is so important as to offset your whole drivetrain would be centermount front 4x4 drivetrain. That's just my guess tho.

    I only read real quick but it looks like that gearbox can be used for 4x4 and a few speculating he may go 4x4 in the future, but doesn't look like he has yet

    Truck is a running a v drive like a boat. Thats why the diff is off centered. It has the engine in the rear going to the v drive and back out to the diff

    And the albins is a huge deal because its a close ratio trans with 3 more gears than a turbo 400.

    I've seen 118 on the GPS in Paul Tracys sand car in a wheelie with the 5 spd albins. Lets you get through the gears with no power loss and runn taller gears. Taller gears = less wheel spin and more traction.
