What part of the country are you in?

I like the GPH a lot. My only problem with any of the 46 machines is that they are
too heavy to drag race competitively. My Shuttle with a 46 in is still over 1 1/2
lbs lighter thatn a GPH.

But the linkage set up on the GPH is supreme.

Whereas the GPH dollars you to death. Sixty bucks for a new set of side frames
(upper and lower)

I made a set from G10 fiberglass. I put the metal frames over top of the g10
and drilled all of the holes. Then I cut the rest of it out with a metal
cutting band saw and went over the edges with my dremel tool and a small
sanding drum. Those frames cost about 20 bucks to make and are better than the
stock frames. The last time I bought a frame set for my shuttle I had 60 bucks
in them.
