GRAND SLAM MID-WEST @ Badlands Carnage Thread

Well... I had a great time (check picture thread) but it was not without some carnage.

The Good: Happened on the VERY LAST obsticle of my trip and I was still able to drive 4.5 hours home.

The Bad: Busted front driveshaft... The CV on the axel side is basicly done for. As I crested the last steep hill all I could hear was popping from the front end. Tim pulled my front drive shaft out and we headed home. I guess now I get to UPGRADE!

I'm sure Al will chime in with his carnage too...

Pics Coming!

Phil, I dumped part of the top shelf when I opened it to help with Ken's spring issue!

Tara wheeled like a pro, regardless of gender she did excellent. Everyone had a great time and the front DS and spring were the only mechanical issues. All fixed within 20 minutes. Oh and a minor TC shifting issue.

Someday Blaine will figure out how to spell "axle" and "search"
