    SICK SICK SICK!!! I'm hoping to be building a Wildcard in the very near future for a start to finish build blog that will lead into a long term review feature.

    Are you planning on lowering the Totem to 6"? What setting are you going to run in the back 6.5" or 5".

    My plan is to build mine up with a Domain U-turn (maybe Lyrik) so that I can run it at 5" for the jumps and 6" for the DH/FR stuff. Back end will most likely remain at 5". I like a low BB and a slack front end.

    Oh, if I go with a Domain I might take the left over money and hook up a Hammerschmidt

    You might want to flip the shock around. The boost chamber will hit the downtube when compressed in that 5" setting.

    You planning on leaving it at the 5" setting with the Totem up front? I wonder how that'll feel.

    soon enough a wildcard will be mine. I intend to built it up with a domain u-turn myself so it can have fun geo in both travel settings.

    Really looking forward to seeing your WC built up. That's a really nice thing you did for your dad.
