Got some new tires from 4Bangler. Traded for the skinny boggers. DOT 37s are the biggest we can run in Ultra4 modified, so we decided to go with Goodyear MTRs. I think the plan is to move the 35" short course tires to some H2's and put the MTRs on the beadlocks. The short course tires aren't DOT approved so we can only run them in TREC races, but not in Ultra 4 races in the Modified class.






We are heading up to St Helen this weekend on our old tires to shake down the new axle and hopefully get some video rolling through some whoops and doing minor shock adjustments. (no valving changes, just preload and dual rate slider adjustment). Probably play around on the rocks a bit too.

Tick list is getting shorter for the next race, still knocking out a few safety items from going through tech at the first race. A few wiring clean up items like the horn and brake lights/amber race light. We are looking at going to a remote gas fill setup as well as moving to internal fuel pump and regulator.

Also working with TJontherox to get some better numbering on the car before the race.

Next race is
UMC
on June 30th.

At the time I was planning on running them with my new MT/R's, but now I have my eye on some Rock Monsters or some cheap aluminum wheels that are easier to put inner air locks on...plus I need less backspace.

I got lucky, ran them at 8psi and never rolled a bead, but I see now that I dismounted them...not much of a safety bead on the rim...and no good spot to drill a second valve stem hole for inner air's...

One of those tires had a bottle cap inside it....and a bunch of dirt...the others looked fine.

Good day. Played on the rocks until we broke an outer shaft. Swapped in shafts from JeepM715's rig and then did some tuning for a bit. Finished up with a short cruise and now we are eating at G's.

We have a few spare shafts and hubs, so we will swap in a new one.

There can only be one 1%er. Last I heard that position is filled.

Like Junkie, I just want race day to get here. It was fun ripping down our makeshift tuning course.

I wouldn't mind getting out again just for the mental health benefits.
