So what bugs do you have to work out? Any things you want to change after running it in its first race?

good work guys, impressive first showing, especially given your issues.

now it is time to tear it apart and throw more cash at it.

EDIT- The white explorer is one of the few people on the course I would have no problem bumping before I pass. I gave Greg a newbie pass in this race since I didn't want to dent up his brand new tin with cute pink stickers Next time I'm not waiting that ong to pass, especially on that fast section next to the bean field.

I would have to rate it more like "Educated Red-Neck Engineering" then "Ghetto @$$".

Power steering pump , transmission both are new and getting rebuilt...awesome. I am going to swap some springs and change fluids. Other than that I was very happy.

Thanks. With the tranny problems I was having I just want to be out there enjoying the race. I tried to keep an eye out for other coming up behind me.

I remember someone asking if the tranny will come out with out pulling motor. I can now say yes it will. It took me around 7 hours but it came out without pulling motor. Now that its out I need to trim a few tabs and relocate 1 tab and that time should easily be cut in half.
