Yeah. That was Bergman's rig. Tough break. What do you do next when you snap a 14 bolt 3rd member?

Pinion Guard with the support tied into the truss?

That had to of been a prior hit that weakened the housing.

I think prior damage too. It definitely didn't happen where he broke right in front of me. He was barely getting into it.

HELL YES!

He opened up the coilovers and the bypasses once, made a valving change in all of them, then had me make about 5 passes across his test track, making adjustments to the bypasses every time, based on my feeback and what he saw. Night and day better day. I think better than it was when I bought it, and it was tuned by Fox at KOH '11.

The "fast guys" were making passes across his test track at 45-50. 30-35 was enough for me. I really had no desire to drive my rig any faster than that. After I made the passes, the zip ties he put on my bumps were still in the mid range of travel, so I could have definitely pushed it harder. He said it looked great to him, and it felt great to me. Honestly, I know the car has more in it, but I'm just not confident to drive it that fast yet.

He normally charges $300/half day, but he only charged me $150, since he hardly hardly had to do anything. Best money I've ever spent.

Definitely reserve early if he does. And show up early to get your place in line. He had 32 people reserve a spot as of Friday at 8am. Only half that many showed up.

Shock tuning was definitely worth it. JeepM715 was driving and I would stand next to Wayne and he told me maybe 0.0000001% of his tricks. It was cool to see him in action. I don't know how he keeps it all straight.
