Yes!

I never would have tried it before but now that I have a sweet diff cover I think my rig is up to the challenge.

Khris,

The owner of this company is a friend of mine, and is looking for a desert race car to put these new joints he has designed on at no cost. If you know of anyone that may be interested, please let me know.

Larry, I'll look into those and see if we have any need or anyone I know here locally that possibly would. I'd say I'd slap them on the rear links of my yota but I don't think it would really represent the type of testing he's probably looking to do. While my truck does get used and would have a use for them, it's not ran at a race abuse level basically. My truck is driven like a cadilac with a grandma behind the wheel while the race truck is flat out hammered on appropriately.

I do know some of the guys that run the pitbull class 8 truck. I can see if they'd be interested in doing some testing with them. I'm not sure if they'd want to actually race on them but they might at least be willing to do some test sessions and see if they're something they'd want to continue with.

I REALLY like that the threaded shanks are so long those!!! That's always been my complaint with normal heims. By the time you get a jam nut in the equation, you sometimes run out of adjustment or push the edge of what's a comfortable about of thread engagement.




Hey Puck...

Badashed cat!


The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Not sure if you can see this but it's a complete intercom system for $300. Has PTT button and could potentially be hooked up to a cb system.

The amount of scheming that has gone on in the past 5.5 hours of my life is almost absurd! Not sure if I'm brilliant, insane, or just stupid? LOL

That is all for now...

I swear Larry is not paying me to plug his business, but I cannot say enough good things about the work he and Brett do down @ Vegas4X4. They are taking care of some long overdue TLC on my rig and fixing some things that were completely fudged by another supposedly reputable shop here in town & doing an amazing job in the process. If you haven't had a chance yet, you should definitely stop by their shop out at the speedway if not for repairs or build, at least to check out all the cool stuff

Thank you for the kind words, and thank you for coming out yesterday to check out what we're doing to your rig!
