fabr you had better get your 4 sxs's polished up for may!!  ;D honestly the event may be fun, won't be any decent rides due to the large number of people but the over all event may be fun. with that many younger people there will be plenty of crashed toys to view to see the diff weak spots.

I'll need to check the calendar.  I know that we're planning on taking a family trip to D.C. in June, so it will depend on how busy we are at work, and if the wife wants to watch the kids, come with, or take her own vacation leaving me with the kids.

Snake hunt week is April 22 thru 28.  I would propose the following week of April 29 thru May 4th. 
Carl, when you say "week of", you mean starting Monday?  If so this would work.  I just checked the site and they show 14 spots open for that week.  All in favor say eye!!!

Whooooooooooooooooooooooooosssssss.  I can make my reservations and when we come thru LS I'll leave the trailer with the sand car in it and drive the kids on home then turn around and drive back down to LS.

I was way happy with my numbers Dave and yes Dougs motor and turbo are very tired. I think doug will be happy with what he has for right now.  He has the Tatum for the big HP and with luck we will get to see it come spring.

i talked to the previous owner and he thinks it was 6 or 8 years ago it was freshened up. it was a stock used engine that had a slight knock so they tore it down, new bearings and new rings. so on the up side if doug rebuilds it atleast it hasn't been bored and already at it's limits.

I started on the buggy the other day.  New left front spindle made, parts at powder coat, changing all the suspension bolts (some had some decent wear on them) and all new heim joints.  One thing I learned was that I need to tighten all the suspension bolts before every trip.  My bad.

Lucky I was checking and changing all hardware out.  But the ones that were loose, of course had the worst wear on them.  I always make sure I don't have "threads in bearing".  When the suspension is loaded up, they didn't seem loose, but as soon as it's jacked up, it was obvious.  The rear trailing arms pivots and very front on the A arms were the worse. 

Live and learn, just like the "tow ball" video.  Wow.  Never have heard of that, but makes common sense.

99% of all buggies do though. People just don't know or care to do it right.  I'm with you though. All mine are correct. Takes some doing but definitely worth it.

Those look Glenn!

Looking at the pictures of the broken ones... Doesn't appear to have much for penetration.  Looks like they just melted filler material into the joint.  Glad no one got hurt.  I'm especially glad it didn't happen while you were tearing through the whoops at LS with me as your passenger.  ;D

 :m Glenn stood the car straight up in the air ,nose down about 18" off the ground. Could have tossed a coin on whether it was going over or not.Came back down luckily though.The frame didn't like it so much.

Put it on it's nose at LS. And now put it on it's side at Glamis. Chasing John from OutFront in a run out to the big race one day, during a hard left I slipped it over a ledge and up on it's side it went fifty MPH on two wheel's Sand Savior was riding shotgun and could have wrote his name in the sand, I was able to turn the car hard right and save it.  Back on all four and never lost a spot in line.   The guy behind me said he could see every detail of my belly pan.  That was the week before I rolled it when i was on three wheel's.  So with luck the third time was a charm I got lucky and was just barely moving when it went over with just me in it. I'll be rolling into LS on the twenty ninth for the spring fling.   Who want's to be the first rider?  :nw

I was hoping to make it to your spring trip, at least for a "trial run", but not going to make it now. Outfront is not receiving the ecu's on order. Absolutely no fault of John's, though. My progress is slow because most of my build is experimental, but getting closer.

No, he recommends the Stinger for my project. But they have been discontinued, and he talked them into making him some, one more time. He has mentioned problems such as Chinese holidays, etc. He thinks 2 more weeks, so I am going to go ahead and widen my front end and finish up as much small stuff as possible.

I'm running the Stinger. I have not been total happy with it. It does work.  just not tuning friendly.

The forecast looks pretty good to me.  A few chances of rain, but overall, perfect weather for drinking beer in the sand.  I would guess the biggest group to be Thursday?  I heard sandsavior might be down that day?
