Gotta have factory bumpers, that's what is sticking out in my mind from when i considered keeping jessica's jeep to run in C class.

I'm surprised you can get away with those rear shocks too

having brake issues. i think it may be the master i have bleed the brakes countless times and adjusted the rears a few times and still cant get the pedal to feel and work properly, it just goes to the floor with very little stopping power

hopefully i can get them worked out first thing in the morning other wise it might be a long day trying to get them fixed and ready to head to Indiana tomorrow

Did the master ever get fully drained? if so, did you bench bleed it? have you done a good gravity bleed?

im wondering if the master got messed up internally we ran the whole last race with no fluid in the rear when we ripped that brake line off im thinking it might be scored.

if you cycle the master cylinder even once without fluid in it you're asking for trouble...
