Update 4471: Just jumped back on the 15.... Testing went great. Only 2 hours...Joel helped out a lot getting it to ride perfect. Got some good action shots that I will grab for tonights post... walking around out in the middle of the desert by myself in flip flops I figured that it was better than the forest...at least I eliminated bear attacks

It was good to drop in on three of the Ultra 4 teams last night at Zukizzy's shop. Be safe and have a great time racing!

4464 Team Cowbell Racing left Yesterday from Colorado. They were supposed to tune with King this Am in Barstow. Some of the crew was flying in today so they may have been going to pick them up as well.

Good luck everybody and be safe. And thanks for your efforts and sacrifices you all have made to follow your dream and represent the sport.

All the cars are looking sick.

Maybe you could be looking for a 2001 Dodge Intrepid tranny part.

4471, We were testing in Jean this am (near Primm). Jeff and "ZukIzzy" Wayne did some very well worked out and tuned passes.
McMillin had a 16 car there and the Weyrich TSCO #9 TT made some passes as well. The TT was running about 75% through the chop and with Jeff running about 80% were only 9 mph slower through the same section on the gun. Car is dialed in!!!

Well, if you must know, we are in Vegas running last minute errands. Started with lunch at BJ's then sent Wyatt and Wayne into Sam's Club and Jeff into Walmart with radios to communicate on who was to get what. Dave and I decided that their experience wouldn't be complete if there wasn't a request over the radio from the UNITE short bus office central for different feminine products.
We are now pulling up in front of Kragen and Jeff is washing the car.

They were still having some issues with the brakes, so they bled them in the parking lot and hoping that will work.

Usnick news is epic, he blew the rear highspeed testing in the Paris's backlot on the Strip in Vegas, they have him on the loading dock at the Paris rebuilding it using the Paris forklift with their chase trucks backed in, is the news from JabNasty Matt the badass Texan.

Sound like the Trany is toast.
Unless you have a C4 handy......There is another on the way from Colorado tonight. They should have it in the AM. On a good note the tuning went great and the rest of the truck is ready to race.
