    haha, we're gonna keep 'em business, right her on CC.

    18" seat to footrest? Dude, you have some long ass legs.

    Why 1.5" wheel spacing? curious, as I'm still working on mine.

    Yes, I think you want/need the 4" rigidizer when running a hard back.

    We'll keep them going for sure. lol.

    Yeah, last time I stood I was 6'4" with long legs. They look even longer now... or mabey just further away, not sure.

    I figure the 1.5" wheel spacing would be good because the photo that SCI_OTR posted of the ZRAc he spec'd showed a close gap between tire and gaurd. And that was a 1" spacing at 2 degree camber. I'd like to go 4 degree camber. So the gap between my tire and gaurd will be similar to the gap in SCI_OTR's photo. (Honestly though, that's just my guess.)

    Here's SCI_OTR's thread with the photos he posted of the ZRAc...

    I think going with the Rigidizer is a good idea too. Thanks! And doesn't Rigidizer just sound like a made up word?

    For some reason the .xls format thing won't work for me. Bummer.

    With your given spec, your chair would be 28.5" wide if using short tab hand rims and 29.25" wide with long tabs. Keep in mind that some door frames in homes are less than 29".

    Yes, you'll need the rigidizer bar if you're using the jetstream pro back. The width of the jetstream will be the width of your chair so you'll order a 18" width back.

    Oh, hey, thanks for checking it out for me! My most narrow door is 30.5" in this house. I think I'm good to go.

    Thanks, november. I wasn't sure about how wide to go with the back. You rock!

    I'll totally Rigidize it too.

    You can also spec for lesser rear wheel spacing and then order extra rear wheel spacers if you need to widen it.
