Updates please! Good god this is an amazing buggy.
What happened with the motor/supercharger setup?

Also anymore info on that winch setup? I perfer the no front bumper look on the XJ and that stubby winch mount is just perfect for what I'm after!

It has been a while since I updated this. I had some issues with the stroker in its first race. Pulled it and put a spare 4.0 in it. In the off season this winter it will go back in and I will start working on the supercharger again. With that I needed more cooling, so I covered that first.

Since I had an extra Tcase laying around with the HD gears in it, I did the switch as I was rebuilding some stuff.

Doubler back together with the new 6 planet planetary and 23 spline input. Also, I put in two barbed fittings so I will be able to have a fluid level gauge.

It is but I am pulling it apart to make sure we have no damage and it is broken in properly. My last even of the year with this thing was last Saturday, so now I have time to work on it and not just prep it for races and events.

Interior changes....





From our first race of the year.

Second race of the year.



And the outcome of the 3rd race of this year. 3rd is class and beat 120 other cars and ended up 28th overall out of 150. We had to stop for a flat which took 1st away from us and a top 10 overall.



And the latest shot of over the weekend. Lots of changes. Had to cut half of the front end off and rework it. Racing takes its toll.



Something I did miss to take photos of was our upgrade to 60mm Bilstien Quad bypasses in the rear with heat sink reservoirs.

Here is a crappy photo but you can see the new shocks in and ready to rock.
