Dunno, it would be my guess tho, and that sure looks like a Ujoing shaft from the diameter of it...

All day long a quad can "roost" his buddies.  When the time comes - any of them coming over to toss some serious sand?  Nope.

Unfortunately ,yes.

I will be buying extinguisher for my "cheap" rail. 

Since its an $80K rail maybe they should get some fire suits like NASCAR.

80k is only what they told the insurance adjuster.   :laugh:

I have thought about an extinguisher.  Here is the deal, way back in the day, I used to sell and service them.  Some major brands have a lot of plastic parts.  My $0.02 if you get one, make certain the important parts are all metal (Well, NOT plastic). 

The only brands that I know that were all metal were "Ansul" - they dont make small ones, or "Amerex" - they make nice ones for our application. http://www.amerex-fire.com/main.asp  There might be more, these are just the two I know. 

Stay away from Kiddee for an off road application - home use - just fine.  Lots of plastic etc.  NFG for auto use on or off road. 

Now, in the event you already have a plastic one, and you need it, and it fails to work, chances are the pressure has escaped.  If that occurs,   you can unscrew the top and shake out the powder over the fire like a salt shaker.  BE VERY CAREFUL!  If it still has pressure, it WILL HURT you if you unscrew the top.  The little gauges fail all the time - cant trust them. 

Most important thing is keep your head about you.  Rushing does not put it out - smart thinking does. 

It also helps to insure it so you can just break out the bag of marshmellows and wait for the check.

Might be the only to get my money, time, and the cost of all the beer this thing took.

To insure my drak for just 10k was 2700.00 pr yr, multiply that by about 8, and its probbaly safe to say that most likely 1/2 the buggys are not  insured...

Serious? 

Mine is less than that.  Shop around.  Should be less than $500.00 per year depending on limits. 

As I run at the dunes, I have high UMBI (Uninsured / Under insured bodily injury limits)  limits so when one of the drunk masses hits me, I have some recourse.   Rub is, you can't have higher UMBI limit than GL limit, so I pay around $70.00 per month for "full coverage" with high limits on the UMBI and a "declared" value of 20k.   If I dropped my GL / UMBI limits to state minimum, I would be less than $50.00 per month.    Then you duke it out with the "primary auto" policy for the UMBI money.     

I am through Foremost.   

I would do some searching - better deals to be had.

There have been many POS uj shafts offered in the last couple of years tho from supposedly reputable suppliers.
   










this is so true master fab. 

to anyone thinking of trying a pair u-joint drive shafts do not use              DRIVE SHAFT SUPERSTORE!!!!!   
 
you would be better off throwing $100 bills in a fire. these guys are getting there parts from china and the 1310 series yokes are cast. I tried 2 pair and had more problems and nightmares in 4 hours than I ever have had.  there yokes actually spread open .02".  In fact I have never had any problems with spicer or rockford products in 8 years.
 jesse at high angle builds quality products as well.
