Did the buggy scare you enough to promptly sell it?

No way, it made me wonder why it took so long to get one. It's a blast to drive.

Gotta make some changes though....front driveshaft isn't near long enough and need front limit straps.

Someone said your front dshaft pulled apart and Beefy said that you're a lot more fun to wheel with in your buggy. Did you try helmet hill?

Shaft puled apart 3 times then we cobbled some stuff together and made it better for today.

I never made it over to helmet hill. We were all over but just never got there. I'm not sure I can get the wheel speed for it with the 4 angry squirrels.


Oh, and my tcase shifter in on the tcases broke or popped out of the top of the case...not sure yet. Locked the case in 5:1. 15 mph in 5th gear at 3500 rpm.

I don't think that was me. You talking about the 5am revving? I heard about that. That wasn't me. I was down in the parking lot across the highway.
