On a side note, atlas is ready to go back in. Swapping gears wasn't too bad at all. Can't wait to test out this low range, it'll likely be short lived as I'll probably go from 4.56 to 5.xx this fall in the diffs to get high range dialed in better.

Couldn't be happier with how the rig is performing, won the 40+ RBOR class at Twisted Trails last month, and won the 42-44 class and 2nd in the 39-41 class yesterday at Bundy Hill Pit Trash Shootout. Unfortunately, it all comes with a price.

Running the grand finale I managed to break the raceline on the passenger rear, and slit the front passenger Trep front to back which is irrepairable. Gonna make a nice tire swing.

Was able to shove 7 plugs in so I could do the bonus hill timed climb on the staircase, one shotted it twice. Then the third time got a little off the line, came down and broke the front r&p. Time to regear!

Some video of the buggy around the 1:50 mark in this video:

Haven't posted an update in awhile. Got the buggy regeared to 5.43, and absolutely love it. Thing hits 70 like nothing, low range is back to where I like it with the 3:1 gear swap that happened a few months ago. Got the exhaust high temp powdered, gonna see how it holds up. Headers are the only part I'm concerned with. Split an RCV cage last time out, probably mostly my fault. Got parts in one day like the last time, gotta love RCV!!!

Trashed another front r&p. Planning on adding a jantz load bolt to the front yukon 3rd and putting in a motive pro series 9310 alloy r&p. If this doesn't hold its going to get painfully expensive.

I'll put installation pics up once it happens. Doing a bunch of prep to take this thing to KOH all week.

Thanks, the high temp powder didn't hold up on the exhaust either, so we're doing cerakote inside and out shortly.

Also building a replica th350 so I'll have a backup. Anybody know what the dowel back by the governor holds? It seems to have pushed out.

I also added a second atlas support, buddy cuts them for me and laser etch's the cut line. I have one on the output side, but felt my driveshaft getting hit is why I cracked a trans case a year ago.

thats interesting - I never thought about having a 2nd one there. I may have missed it...but do you have the adapter between the trans and tcase supported as well?

Yep, its on bushing that are flush with the bottom of the chassis. But then there is 11 ga skid and 1/2" UHMW covering the entire belly. If it got hit hard enough there to buckle it, it would deform the skid.

Here is a picture of the trans dowel that seems to have worked its way out. Everything is working fine, I just noticed this the other night.

I've also attached a picture of the jantz 9" load bolt mod from the other thread. I just ordered two, one for rear and one for front. You pay to rent the jig from them, and return it afterwards and get the rental fee back.

Got the DIY Jantz load bolts last week. Kit looks very comprehensive and well put together.

I'll be getting these installed in both diffs this week. I bet you could barely egg the fill plug to get it in there, but you'd be slightly above centerline of the pinion. I'm planning on filling in the fill plug hole, hopefully I can grind the fill plug then get it in there then slide the bushing in to reduce the amount of filler I have to use.

One down one to go, welded really nice actually, no bad noises on cool down either which made my evening.

Pre-heated to 250F, peened each 1/2"ish weld for 30 seconds or so immediately after welding per Jantz's instructions. Used Crown Alloy 220-T on the outside, and tig bronze on the inside. Never used the tig bronze before, pretty cool stuff. I ground the fill plug into a moon shape and took the threads off so I could press it in beside the load bolt sleeve so I didn't need as much filler. Prior to welding I could feel a slight rotation on the spool so I knew nothing was bound and everything was aligned properly with no binding.

My slow cool apparatus worked pretty friggin slick, took it around an hour to come down from 300F to 140F. And it did so pretty uniformly.

Going to get this thing going back together and ready for KOH finally.

Jantz load bolts installed nicely, figured what the hell and had a buddy powdercoat the thirds.

New trans will be done soon, going to be nice to have an identical spare. Put new bolts in all the links and struts. New trans cooler line going in as well. PSC rebuilt and shipped the pump back lightning quick, they are always a pleasure to deal with.

LII mirrors are at powdercoat, put a set on a buddies buggy and really liked them.

One last push, and this thing will be ready for KOH. Hope to have it buttoned up this weekend.

Putting up a comparison pic of the pro series 9310 motive gear (left) to an 8620 standard motive gear (right).

Really looking forward to the mirrors, I've driven my buddies buggy around some that I put them on and they work really nice.
