Last week I mentioned that bump-steer was 0.030″. That was true, but it was measured between the lug nuts which are only ~4″ apart. Since the OD of the tire is about six times bigger than that, it means actual bump-steer is more like 0.180″. Oh well, it is what it is and will be dealt with in due time.

Set out to install a bunch of rivnuts but broke the 6-32 mandrel on the first pull. Fine – spent the day on the engine bay, getting the rear suspension in – not tightened down or adjusted, but in at least. Also started tying down some of the wire harness. The plan is to install the engine in the next week or two.
