any news or updates?
What class are you running? What time will be you landing? I know we met briefly last year and I tried to find you a few times again but didn't. I'd like to take a closer look at the Rocker if we get time. My car has changed significantly since you last saw it.Yeah, buncha stuff. First race on April 30th.
Sometime friday afternoon/evening, I'd like to prerun but I've raced there a dozen times at this point so it's not that big of a deal, especially if the weather is shitty.What class are you running?

If you look at the pic where I posted the bearing & race still inside the housing...I didn't drain that. The oil level shown there is where it was when things melted. :/Neat! Always interesting seeing how and why parts broke, quite a chain of events there. Mighta just been spinning fast enough long enough to sling the oil off? Heard of it happening in differentials when people are burning one tire for a long time. In fact, I'm pretty sure that's why one of the spiders was welded to the cross pin in my F350 when I tore it down the first time.
Speaking of, if those V-blocks in the press are cast (the edges look pretty rounded, maaaaybe forged?), I would shy well away from doing that again, they come apart VIOLENTLY when being pressed on, even flat.
Thanks! Not sure where we'll be camping, but I'll be there early Friday afternoon.Looks cool! Will get a close up look at it Saturday.
Nah, just nowhere local that I can easily do that. Hopefully there might be some video at the race this weekend. Front is probably about 80% dialed, I need to shorten the air bumps, but the springs should be good now...they were a bit light before. Now that it's fully race prepped the rear is a little light too, so I'm gonna crank another inch of preload in for the weekend, but valving-wise both ends are workable and I've already had the rear apart a few times.What are you going to get some video of that front end cruising over some chop? More tuning needed I am guessing?
I was just talking to Matt... that list makes me glad I took the race off!!!!Sorry I didn't get a chance to shoot the shit with you. How'd she do this weekend? Hope you had better luck than those of us further down the hill.
I rolled and broke a stub shaft, DNF
Smike had a flat and then rear driveshaft carrier failed, DNF
Matt emptied his trans, repaired a line, then finished.
Karl finished with a broken front inner shaft and no reverse.
Jeff Brown lost a front R&P climbing the hill from the start line
Tim Vasas had a worse roll and the car was whooped after 5 laps.
uugh is all I've got to say!
