You may have not gotten any input due to all your questions and more have been ask, answered, in many different ways already on the forum. Spending some time reading all you can on the forums here will most likely answer any question you could come up with.
I have yet to start my quad, but after spending many mounts reading on this site, I do not think there is a question about my build that has not already been addressed here.
Good luck to you. and hope your build goes well.
