Thanks for the coverage buddy!!!

The pics a great as usual with you.

We had very good weekend for learning what we need to do to the rig to race XRRA. Lance over at PSC is going to help me get the steering worked out and there is no way to get around having a selectable locker for the rear of the buggy. I feel like these two changes would have helped me be a lot more competitive last weekend.

On a good note the buggy felt great. It is stable and seems to ride nice around the track. For our first event I wouldn't say I am happy at all, but we did learn a lot. I think Jellico will be much better for us.

We all had fun though and can't wait to do it again.

Its amazing how real the flames look on Levis car! We home now 2 out of four of the buggies are washed. Cant wait for a "normal" weather XRRA! THANK YOU to all the recovery guys for their efforts ALL weekend, not just for getting Levi put out. I wasnt worried a bit when I saw the fire, knew there was plenty of help there. Spotter extrordinare Kelly was right there helping him out!

There were a lot more roll overs than I was expecting to see......more fires too ! Also noticed that just about every rig out there had a screaming steering pump, was this course just tighter than most and working the steering more or is that the norm?

thanks

That was my first event ever, first time driving my new buggy, and the first time running with Lucky Dog. I had a complete Kick A$$ time for sure. Even though I kicked my own ass with front axle problems. Branik brought me a rear axle right after tech. Those guys rock.
The whole Dog Pound Crew, John Sumner from SMW, Mike from Bent and Twisted, all worked like mad men getting basically an entire buggy built in a little over a week. She fired up for her first time last Sunday. From the trailer to Tech was my seat time. All that being said, really the only problem I had was my own tape measure evedently with shaft lengths. (The 300's from Spider should be here for the next one hopefully.) But a complete buggy and no other issues really to speak of at all.
Thanks guys. I met some real good folks this past weekend. Ken thanks for helping me with one of your spares, Yes, I broke that one also

You did awesome! You are going to be dangerous for sure.

Did you see the picture where you pelted McClure with mud? Funny as hell.

Go to my website, I have some really good shots in my Favorites folder of your buggy.

Great job!

rumor

Just maybe a rumor, but I heard that Levi's buggy caught the Swine Flu from rolling around and playing in the mud all weekend long.

So I need to ask about the fires, research questions only...
What was the cause of the various fires, ATF? Fuel? Other?

Thanks

Big

Nolen had this to say in the Header Wrap vs Ceramic Coating thread in Gen4x4

3/4 of the fires at Grayrock this weekend were those with wrap on the headers.

Screw that stuff, do it right with ceramics and shields.

The ones I know of was either steering fluid or in Levis case a broken fuel cap

Levi had two fires. One was from his power steering resevoir bottle. The top popped off for some weird reason, and no, NOT the cap either.
The other was when he rolled, must have had a bad seal in fuel cap cause it leaked a little bit.
Levi doesn't have wrapped headers. Wrapped headers are no good. They do hold fluid when spilled on them, plus you kill the life of the actual header because the metal runs so much hotter inside and doesn't cool down well.

If you choose to wrap, then you should finish it off with a coat of paint.

I've run them for the last 4 years with no problems. I use the thermo-tec coating also and only have the primaries wrapped. The rest is ceramic coated. If anything, I think they help prevent fires by keeping heat off of things around them that could otherwise possibly melt. Regardless of opinions on how it looks, it does work well evidenced by widespread use in all types of racing. Don't let anything become oil soaked, period.

I think the key thing to focus on is making sure flamable liquids don't leak in a roll-over.

My opinion only, of course

BTW Nolan, cool pics
