Thanks !!! had a blast . man that race is a beat down of rig and body. burnt high low shifter cable in half and have found some loose nuts and bolts . heat off engine wasnt a problem but the muffler under the drivers seat not rapped was a bitch . Ran both fans all race and it stayed 190 and 210 across the field (locked in low range) going to do a tear down and check and fix some things before next race . And i almost forgot, one more trip to howell engine for one more program. See ya on the next one.

that was a blast at the trail race. awesome course as usual. i'm going to try and fix the grand Cherokee for the June race. ripped off the lower control arm from the axel (damn stumps) and had a idler pulley seize up as i crossed the finish line. boy does that beat the hell out of you in 4 hours. my spotter robert and i were laughing all the way during the race. glad i had a spotter because i almost rode solo. it helps with an extra set of eyes. i hope everyone had a blast out there and hope to see more people in the B class next time.

maybe they should bump it down to 3 hours. so the rigs dont get completely destroyed and guys can manage to run all the races.

i want to apologize for not being at the results reading i was helping a friend of mine out of the trails before it got too dark.
i think 4 hours is about right but it sure beats the driver and rig pretty hard.
wish there were standings posted and be able to get print out results from the timing people.

might be a good idea. That last hour seemed to be putting a lot of stress on the motors, rear ends and steering. And I'm pretty sure I mean both rear ends of the driver/spotter and the vehicles

Definitely looked like a fun race, from all the hooting and hollering from the driver/spotters.

We need a gps map of the course. Both a print out and a gpx file.

This would have made spectating a whole lot easier if we knew where the course went. Yes, it was nice to go wherever you could walk, but, man, a 7 mile course is a lot of walking.

Thank goodness I won't be walking the course in June

Best rush ever! Only completed two laps, but they were fun. Harmonic balancer pulley got flattened on the axel, the belts kept coming off, overheating. Finally got the belts to stay on and then a tree wouldn't let us pass. Sheared the front driver side leaf spring, dam trees. Trail was great, a real work out, lots of tight turns. 4 hours was perfect, weeded a lot of us out, to those who competed the whole race, well done.

Average speed, average lap time, best lap time, fastest lap, slowest lap, none of that was available, that sucked! All in all it was fun, the most fun I've had behind a wheel ever! Thanks to the TT crew as always great comp.

I like the 4 hrs because that is one of the many things that make this so technical. trying to keep your head together for 4 hrs is a feet at least for me! We are doing this race for fun but man my 2 cents is it could be a qualifier for KING OF HAMMERS

a timer at the start line would be nice so you can easily see how long you have. i am feeling rough today! hopefully we will have better seats and some 5 point's by next race, that thing beat the hell out of me.
