Wild West 100 Carnage

Post up your carnage from the race. I am curious to see what took its toll on your rig.

The damage I have found so far:
Shattered left front stub and hub, I believe the extra stress from the left side giving up caused the right hand axle joint to let go and throw a cap that ground off the lower ball joint bolt. Chromoly inner shafts arrived today, Now I can use the outers and slugs I already have

The swaybar arms met the coilover lockrings removing some valuable aluminum from them, And the lower crossbrace under my fuel cell was introduced to the upper 4link arms and became an arch. Will be installing Airbumps this winter

Never use DIY beadlocks while racing Some of the bolts came loose on the right rear and I got a flat, I am thankful the BFG Krawler is still good, thanks Shane for yelling at me at the checkpoint! Allieds for next year for sure.


With the breakage The Buggy sustained I am amazed it finished. It just goes to show, What you don't know won't hurt you.

6 sheared studs on axle, seal behind tq converter let go (took me out of race), rear housing is smiling at me. The rear housing has had the shit kicked out of it many times so thats not a real big deal. Also all my heims ends are loose but they are also almost 5 years old. Time for a tear down new paint and modifications to make it better yet. O ya i cut the inside of my drivers tire doing a little bump to pass on a certain car.

4 broken body mounts, hole in frame from mount ripping out, rear shocks toast, battery mount hangin by a thread. Not too bad considering the roughness of the course.

That's one hell of a bump to pass to cut the inside of your tire

I should have taken a picture of that, it was trashed! I wonder if they are going to warranty it?

Who'd you race with Chris? Where do you call home now? I'm in Ms or TN months at a time since last March. Badass wheeling in that neck of the woods btw!

That 300 (that's what I heard it was anyway) ran pretty darn well. Good race.

I REALLY hope I can swing this race next year. I'm tired of watching/helping!

I'm probably not racing next year and plan to be there to help--either at a checkpoint or in the pits. I learned I'm not a driver--I'm a co-dawg/pit guy.

Found a alternative to your dilema, more suspension, less power = same speed but plusher ride and similar price? Only if we could stop there.

Save a tree, eat a beaver.

There are two keys to life, leverage and lubrication. Sometimes you need both.

Because there is no 2nd chances on Pirate!

I love being around racing, love driving a bit fast on the trails, but going to the max my body and suspension can handle wasn't fun. I'm not competitive enough to want to do that.

I like the logistics of planning for the race--and working in the pits.

SAW Airshocks (new but GOOD price) + 7/8" Ruffstuff joints (on sale & pirate discount) + those newish 100$ each heatreated lowers = about 1700$

It's what we are doing with the new buggy but it's still not a "fast" suspension. My wife and I added up what we thought it would take to build a KOH wining suspension and it easly passes the 10k mark. Going fast ain't cheep, and ain't going to happen for us untill she gets out of school

I bet Jayson would warn agains airshocks in a go-fast application after powell's race. Maybe get some classified ad C/Os or FOAs for budget.
