Oh, and that was a solid 2nd place AFTER giving the ENTIRE field a 8-9 minute head start. I still want to know the lap time for that last lap...

No, that was a b-class rig that rolled onto the starting grid at the last second. AlumCJ and Bones were the ones that parked for a picnic by the orange barrel.

fix an repair mode

both sets of rear springs had broken leafs and were bent badly so its getting new 3 inch BDS rear springs, front controls arms are trashed and need new bushings and joints.

broke the rear d shaft last race so we decided to put a SYE in also.


other then that we have just been repairing little things doing maintenance and prepping for the next race.

just when I was starting to like yoiu and you say some dumb shit like this...if you were ratarded enough to waste your time with that front end, yes you could do it per the rules, however there are manymore better ways to go than TTB

Actually, it depends on the class you want to run. If you are running in C Class with all the cool kids like HOser and I, you could not TTB a jeep. Unless you can buy a bolt on kit to do it, but I highly doubt that would be available. If you want to run a TTB Exploder or Ranger, you could do that in C Class.

TTB in a Jeep would push you into B Class at least, if not A Class. B class is kind of boring, only 2-3 rigs show up for most races, A Class usually is a bit larger, but you'd need more than TTB to compete in A. Typically A class are buggys like AlumCJ and others.

hella supertone

we were planning on running it to a siren driver because they are easier to package then a siren speaker but the used siren driver we got was bad, so for this race with just wired them for 12 volts.

I didn't get pics but i spent the week over at Motor City Machine. we ended up scrapping the bushings in the control arms and made up a set of 1.75*.250 wall 4 link arms with 7/8 ths heims all the way around. Im hoping this will cure our front suspension problems. added limit straps and coil retainers also.
