Title: Re: LS spring 2018
Post by: dsrace on January 02, 2018, 11:26:46 AM
i am really looking forward to this next dune trip. not just for the normal reasons ( they are included) but because i have made a few more changes to the rail that will be outstanding.   for starters i got the cold start/ no start issue rung out, was waaaaaay to much cranking fuel. that was part of a pre defined fuel table that came in the ecu for gasoline engines using smaller injectors. also.......i got a chuckle out of this but felt pretty damn stupid after figuring it out......... couple years ago i was having an issue seeing over my hood but only while transitioning over the dune to the right side. so i raised my seats 1.5" and this helped a lot... i had set them for just myself in the beginning as my wife refuses to drive it! so when i did that it was enough to pull my feet back from pedals but no big deal. throttle has 3 positions for the cable which will compensate based on stroke ratio like an eccentric lobe/cam lever. after that i was really never going past 75 yo 80% tps but didn't matter so no biggy right?!?  ;) well last winter while the motor swap was taking place i  pulled the seats and had 2"  extra dense foam added to make them more comfortable  and it really did! it also lifted me up a little  more, so the whole trip to LS i never went beyond 50% tps as a result.  rofl i saw this fact ( once home) on all my data logs, in fact 44% is the most common tps range i used. enemy and doug commented on how far away the pedals were and ya i noticed it but never felt that i had an issue with it. well didn't want to change it to be quite honest lol. so saturday i did....moved the throttle back 2" and brake and clutch 1.5" plus set the throttle up for the highest ratio so now it's 0 to wot in 2" throw of the top of the pedal. prob need to reign that in a bit as that may be to fast. also 2 weeks ago before it got real cold i hit the 30 psi mark on boost, needs more tuning up there but the base fuel table is rich and safe to 30 psi.   to sum this long story up i will be the top 50% of my tps and another 16 psi boost on tap for the next dune trip  ;D ;D rofl rofl

wasn't really referring to  the utv themselves as much as the huge crowd of party goers! holy crap is that a lot of people in 1 spot in that little park! can't imagine how busy the rest of the park is and no room to ride for the risk of hitting one. the funny part is for what a lot of them have in those utv's they could've bought really nice used rails so we may have started with training wheels but because of money not lack of driving skills lol  they spent the money up  :D

there  are a few of them that look pretty good

Alll 50 legal. Anywhere the posted limit is 35  or less that is. These are classified as LSV's ( Low Speed Vehicles)by the feds and all vehicle laws apply including mandated seat belt usage and auto insurance/tags/property taxes. bs1 .

Nope, Clark's house,bunkhouse,shop. Decided against it for several reasons.  Thought about the lots at Deuces but ......,.   You could buy Jackson's compound. It's listed forb$260K. Lol!!

what was the asking price on clarks house?     not sure i would want a house that far away for myself. up keep would be tough 7 hrs away. i thought about one of those sites at dueces and know 2 that did buy but i dont go often enough to be worth that.

Post by: fabr on February 26, 2018, 08:34:07 PM
I don't remember for sure but I talked to him at his sons wedding reception for 2-3 hours. He offered it to me at a lot below asking and it was really tempting and the house comes with a garage/shop and the bunkhouse he rents out to duners. I decided I wouldn't be able to rent out the bunkhouse or house unless I hired a manager that would just suck up any profit and let the place go to hell as well. Then there was the taxes and insurance. I just couldn't justify it. I am looking for a lot ,possibly with a junker house to demolish,in town on the trail though. Put up a pole barn.Again ,the downside is the drive on pavement with paddles. Guess I'll keep looking for something closer but too close $$.

if one was to find a camping spot for a few or more as close or closer to the dunes it would be a something to think hard about. now renting the spots to others would require a property management company more than a manager. not sure if that would be worth it. not sure how often others in the group go either.

IF somebody will let us know when to be there,of course we will.  We've always planned to join in and ,of course, bring a dish or desert item but somehow no one ever knows when or  what is going on.Just a ball park time range would be nice.Sort of like going for rides.SOMEONE/anyone could be nice enough to let us know. No need to wait for me,just let me know you guys are heading out,I can find you.I mean,there are cell phones ;) ;)..............I've finally given up on being included in meals or rides unless I/we just get lucky..

my plan was tues night or wens morning. however, my mother had a massive stroke 14 days ago and is still in the neuro icu so at this time i am still planning on going but depending on how she does i may not be able to. at this point its all positive and looking like shell start rehab next week but one just never knows with this type of stroke. blocked the main artery to the left half of the brain 100% . got her to surgury mins before that half died so not sure whats lost and recoverable yet. so........on a lighter note i will be a grandfather in aug! grandson, so good news too.

I bought his house and the 3 rental units as well. All in one place. My kids get the duplex rental unit and I'm taking Clarks house and the block bunkhouse behind it. I'm not going to rent out Clarks house and the bunkhouse will be returned to a shop. I'm putting in a drive from the highway to the street east of the house for pull in/pull out drive through convenience for the toter.The duplex might be available for rent from the kids. It depends on what they decide. The fairly large parking area just north of Clarks house will likely be made into 1-2 rv rental slots for next year , possibly yet this year.
  We just got it bought today.

Anything can legally cross a state highway in any state SFAIK perpendicular to the roadway.A city can restrict/allow the use of any vehicle within its' city limits.  The state can/did restrict the "trail" running parallel to the highway on what would be a shoulder.

Mine was a simple parameter that absolutely would not stay set in the EFI ignition control.Engine would not hit a lick. Only took 8 hours to get the fix but fixed it is. I followed all of the MSD trouble shooting and everything indicated a dead MSD control box with absolutely no spark but for some reason ,not the least of which was having Jegs send next day Saturday delivery($$$$) a new MSD box , I just had a hunch it HAD to be in the EFI so I put the other FAST EFI ECU on it and still nothing. WTF was going on?????  There is a setting in the ECU that I found and it would allow changing and uploading the changes but as soon as you did the setting would revert back to the previous setting that would not allow it to start on restart after making tune changes. Oh well,just another learning curve. Glad I made it around it.Thought it was going to spoil some of the fun.  :m :m  I'm going to sleep better by far tonight!!!!

Hope Doug and Carl get their woes corrected in time !!!!

There is a setting for IPU or Discrete depending on whether you are using a flying magnet crank trigger(msd) or a magnetic pickup(FAST) crank trigger. It is in the setup parameters and is not accessed except for initial setup of the EFI. It is never accessed for tuning. For some reason it had somehow gotten changed in the copy of the original setup file that I loaded into the ECU to try a modified tune and I was stuck hunting for the issue for the next 8 hours. Everything I did diagnosis wise pointed directly at a failed MSD box. I bypassed all of the EFI controls and still had no spark.  Correct the crank trigger parameter and viola! I have spark.This still baffles me how that can be but it is what it is.
