Yup,you missed it. Second gear dogs are toast.

loyalty to the American people."

Ok Made my escape from the hospital today about noon and was back in the shop by three.  Got some sheet metal back on and readied and axle for putting the cv's on.  So my son said he would only work a have day at his job Saturday and then help me to put the axles on the car.  After that he is going to load the fifth wheel into the truck bed for me.  So that will pretty much take care of the heavy work. Five or six more pieces of sheet metal to put on the car and it will be ready to load in the hauler. Things to do Saturday are make sure I have water in both ICE CREAM Buckets, All four CV's greased and ready for my son to man handle up into the car. If you don't know already 934 cv's and axles are friging heavy.  I have a hard time just getting them to the car.  1: So I have a shot at getting the car to the dunes for a shake down. 

 I will be at the dyno shop in the morning first thing to watch Chris (Wichita Dyno)  tune Jerry's car.   Jerry has it all wired with ten foot of wire on each lead just to make sure everything is right.  After it starts and is tuned he will then cut and run all the wires like they should be.  That will be in Yuma where will be this time next week.

If I believe I cannot do something it makes me incapable of doing it. But when I believe that I can, then I acquire the ability to do it , even if I didn't have it at the beginning.

Sorry to hear that fast, hopefully you caught it early.  If there is something I can help you with, give me a shout.

There mite be. You have any Moley 101 grease? I use a mix of that and Belray.  I got plenty of Belray but don't know if I have enough of the 101.

Damn cool nights but the mid morning and afternoon rides should be awesome with the damp sand.
