We dont know pit assignments yet but I think I will be close to Nitto Tire 108.

We can always use Pit help for race day, or wrenching the night before the race.
We could use help with video in the canyons.
Well be teaming up with POR wheelers and other AZ Undertakers for some shared pit support.

There will be a big AZ camp outside the pit area like previous years.

Lori?

Working on more support.
Well be camped by The POR wheelers and plan to team up with them, Mike and John Brock from crossed up and a third crossed up chassie Jim, Well all be camped together.

Lots of Maybes but its a big commitment to pit, like you know its hard work.

We found out our radio range issue from last year. the Car they programed to 151.695 and my hand helds were programed to 151.697. Have that all straightened out and should have a 20 ft tower at main and remote pit 2 this year.

The list keeps growing.

The 14B gears blew, I think that is what broke the drive shafts.
Need to do a full ARB tear down to get the metal out of it, all new seals, new Yukon gears are on their way but they need to be turned down by Ballistic.

Rear axle housing is cracked at the tube. I will re-weld it, add a top truss and a back bone truss. This is very time consuming.
front links are bent, need to make new ones.
All new 7/8in upper heims and bolts.
need to make new sliders
Spare tires need to be mounted on wheels.
Need to make a spare rear drive shaft
Vinyl Wrapping 16 ft of the RV at Ballistic tomorrow to cover up the Dynomax logo.
Need to break in the new rear gears, test drive and re-fill with 250W race oil.
Need to make the base for two 20Ft radio towers for main and remote pit, (custom antennas are being made)

Yea I dont like 7/8in heims. the towers used on Jimmy's Cars can only fit 7/8in heims. I really prefer 1.25in heims, all my lowers are 2.5 years old the uppers are on set number 3.
2.5 years on a set of gears racing is not bad. jumping is really hard on gears. the new 250W oil will really help the shock loading of the gears.

So next weeking thinking Sunday Ill have a lst min build party at my house, free beer.

Send me a PM for my address. were off wentworth and I10

I didnt see any WAZ guys out there.

We had a good day, Qualified 43rd of 157 and finished 18th, top 20 are qualified for next year. still 4 hours behind 1st place but we had some t-case issues, it got stuck in front wheel drive high range and was blowing all of its oil out so we took it easy top speed on the 3rd lap. 1st lap we lost like 20 positions because it was in frotn wheel drive and you cant do woops with just front drive. Took awhile to figure out why the suspension felt so strange.

My video of our Wed qualifying race that put us starting 43 of 157.
43rd may not be impressive, but its a big improvement from my 72 start last year. Only changes were sway bar, shock tuning, maxxis tires and more lead in my foot.

Almost rolled on the G-out in the first straightaway, in the video you see me swerve but the ass kicked up high and landed to the side, on the water fall it got so sideways we were on 1 tire and the cage bounced off the rock, before the red bull arch did a fast controlled bicycle.

I think I lost the most time through the redbull arch rock garden, the first rock gave me a bad bounce that turned the car, then I chilled out but should have stayed in it.

Due to my lack of power, we used all gears. 1:1 at the start, 2:1 in the wash, 5.44:1 up the waterfall, 2:1 through the rock garden and 1:1 at the finish. All 4 shifts were pretty smooth.

Top 20 cars had enough power to do it all in high range.

I have hours of video from the main race but havent started editing it yet.
