Unhappy

4405 update from Kurtuleas: Tranny MAY NOT be salvageable. If they can't get it fixed today, MFS may have another tranny drop shipped to Vegas. MFS is REALLY coming thru for them on this race.

C4 You know Travis and his Ford Fetish

We think we may have it fixed. Still waiting on the verdict.



Here's the new HASA graphics. I REALLY liked the old wrap with the skull pattern, but this one is still pretty cool.

HASA also shipped us a pallet of waters. I know water is water, but you know how water like Dasani kinda feels smoother when you drink it? Yeah, it's like that..

Update 4471: Car is back together, brakes are fixed, axle is as good as it is going to get, hoping to schedule last minute test and tune with Bilstien early AM Tuesday.

Here are some beauty shots...he sure picked the right co-pilot for this race!

Yeah. We are good to go.

But thanks man, we REALLY appriciate that.

The team is gonna head out in a few.

(minor thread jack) BTW: Lance has article. Just got back from Mexico, so he has a few other things to do first. Hit me up if you got any news on that other tranny part.

So I was in the grocery store buying only the needed essentials for my trip this week (2 bottles jack, case diet pepsi and some cheese and crackers) when the boys from PSC checked in from somewhere outside Vegas. I don't think they know where they are..."closer to the start line than Vegas, and I'm lucky to have enough service to get out!" said Lance.

Update 4411: Dean Bullock and the whole crew (less one) are already there and ready to roll. They have been working on getting the case trucks prepared and pretty much kicking back. The car is handled, and running perfect. Lance said that they are ready to go a day early...and there is something really, really wrong with that

By the time I made it home, they must have found some better cell service cuz I got these pictures

The last pic is of rock crawling past and present: Jeff Rector and Todd Stevenson both vital members of team 4411.

I'm so sad I am missing all of this. I blame Robert for coming home fron Iraq at this exact time

I'm not sure who I am supposed to wish good luck to....Jeff or Dave, so I will wish them both the best of luck!!!

Oh, and don't forget to continue to purchase KOH merchandise

The UNITE Team is currently having their "Team Meeting" I don't know what they are talking about other than kicking butts and taking names

All I have are these pictures and a Quote from Dave Cole "Gas Stings Your Pee Hole" No, I will not be investigating this quote.

Quick update to a cool thread.

Crashing out in our Crew Chiefs motorhome in Kirbys backyard.

Car is just about ready. We scheduled an appointment at the dyno at 10 AM tomorrow. Should be Vegas bound late tomorrow afternoon.

The car is truly amazing. 3 foot whoops off of Outlet Center shifting to 3rd. Well, Kirby and Ridgway are. I'm low to mid range second. It's hard to explain the feeling of driving a car this fast in whoops that big. Your mind can't reconcile the difference between what it sees and feels. Your 'sight' says this is going to hurt, slow down. Reality is, you don't feel a thing.

The small things are keeping me awake now.

Belt tensioners and fuel lines.

Thanks Charlene and PBB for hosting this thread.

5:50am team 4471 texted in leaving the house...and headed to pick me up! Here we go! We are already through Victorville and trying to get through the pass before they close if for blasting this morning. Stopping somewhere near stateline for testing....
"On the road again...." dodadodado

My partner in crime for covering "live" Crowdog is leaving Nor-Cal in a couple hours and hopes to make the whole trip by tonight. If you are into UTV's aka SXS's also watch for coverage of that class on www.utvweekly.com

Just passed through Baker...seen about 6 CHPs...is that the way CA Stimulates the economy?? We are trying to behave...don't have a multi-item ticket in the budget!
<<<<Seriously, if you are driving 15 today beware...they are thick!!>>>>

Just got an email from Kurtuleas:
4405 got a late start out of Sacramento, not leaving until after 11pm. Nothing new for Travis since him and his Rock Zombie brethern often drive all night to get to the Hammers.

They are now about an hour out of Vegas.

Get this: STEPH'S MOM (Steph is Travis's girlfriend, everyone on Pirate knows her, well....knows her...uh....breasts) Steph's mom is hauling the BIG trailer during the race. Seems she used to own a trucking company and knows how to haul big trailers like that

Stopped in Primm for a quick McD breakfast rush... Hooked up with Bilstien and headed to the desert to pull the car off the trailer.

Here are some other rigs in the parking lot ;-)
