Tires are working great, maybe too good. We broke the rear pinion at the flange. And then we think this took out the flange off the t-case. The output shaft is still good it just ripped the flange off. So we only got one race in cause we had no spare diff. next race we will have a spare for sure.
We were having a great run. All the big climbs were easy. The rock sections went while and the big drop offs were fun. It’s the exit with the leaf springs which made it hard. It was a big climb with a break over point in the middle. Every time we hit it the front tires would come off the ground. We had the front tires off the ground and the rear was the only thing climbing and with not having a track bar. A little axle wrap took out the rear pinion. So know it is time to build a track bar and build a spare diff so next time we can race all day.
Thanks for all the support guys. Nice meeting everyone that stopped by to say hi. We will get them next time.
