So... gut feeling after looking things over a bit more on the race truck last night. I think the motor mount bolts worked their way loose and that's what caused the failure. I don't think the bracket just failed out of the blue.

For anyone that wasn't there... Check out the jack handle spliced into the coolant line on the side of the block! I need to get that back to Garza to return to Dave!



Lowrida!



The two tabs that are ripped off actually are the lower two that secure straight to the block. 2 out of the 3 bolts holding the mount to the block are gone. I know for a fact part of my pre race prep was torquing those. They will get drilled and safety wired this next time! ANDY!!!!!!!!! LOL I also will be running the stock bracket again but it's going to get some additional love via sheetmetal, welder and hammer!

If anyone has adams1985cj's phone number can you PM it to me. I had to delete all my PM's cause it was full and accidentally deleted his number. I need to talk to him tonight or in the morning before he comes over to verify one thing so that I don't waste his time in coming over for some cage work for no reason... Kinda forgot one small issue I have right now! LOL

Are the threads in the block stripped? Did you use a torque wrench of did you just wrench them down? It sucks that something so simple caused the failure. Let me know when you want me to come by. I would prefer to wire up both sides. I also want to take a look at the wire on the hubs as well. If it is going to be after this weekend, I'll see if I can't get my hands on some .32 wire and wire everything up with that instead of the .20.

Freaking bestbuy sucks... I got the extended warranty on a Laptop and it is Running out on Sunday. So I run by the store to get a new battery on order. The girl there tells me that I need to call the 1-800 number, that they always loose stuff when they ship it to the store. So I get back home and call the 24 hour tech support line, get put on hold for over 20 minutes only to get told that their part store is closed and that I need to call back tomorrow. WTF and they wonder why I go look at their store and just order the crap online.

You got to stick with Costco for electronics. They replaced a tv for my sister 2 yrs after the warranty was up.

If that does not make you want to do wheelers pass, I don't know what would. I could have thought of hundreds of better places to dump a body.

Seriously... That is probably one of the worst places to dump a body. Hell, he would have been better off burying it in his backyard. He could have dumped it miles from anywhere and probably gotten away with it if he could keep his mouth shut.

Yep. It was SERIOUSLY scary! It was no joke! The magazine in there had what looked like blood on it under the black light! UV reactive "stuff" all over the floor and walls! Very freaky!
U shooting with us tomorrow?
