i bet the TTs lasted longer because of the 20mi sprint doing little damage, then it had chance to heatsink and get warm, then fail at the end of the race due to previous damage.

When will someone install a block heater in the diffs and plug it in before race. Or wire it up in a toggle switch to warm it up

Thats the main thing ive been thinking about hah, Or maybe have a propane shop heaters pointed at the diffs for awhile before the start. that 250wt shit is nasty thick even when its 60 degrees. Its gotta be like nearly solid at 30 degrees, the ring gear probably just digs a hole in it and nothing makes it to the pinion gears for the first 30 minutes of the race. also i bet its a huge horsepower killer until its warm.

Next year if it's that cold you'll see guys with propane heaters. Generators and those blankets. Or something to warm up the diffs. Not worth the risk. Trophy truck team my friend worked for said 45 min minimum with tires in air to warm them up and that was in 60 degree weather.
