M ight be a muddragger if

1st one happened to me today, the others are just mud drag experience.

Before the guys at work ask you if you saw a show on TV last night, they first have to ask if you have cable this week. Hey, race parts are expensive.

You intensionly have a different gear ration in the front diff compared to the rear.

Before you purchase those tires, you have to be able to measure them mounted on the rim, to make sure they don't exceed the 35 inch rule.

Your cam selection is based on 15 inches at 1000 rpm, not for concern about idle quality, or enough to operate the power brakes. But to be allowed to run in stock class.

Everyone stares at you in the restraunt on a Sat night. Because you are covered with mud, except for that outline of a four point harness across your chest.

Before you can take your snowmachine for it's first ride of the year, you have to wash the mud out of the visor hinges so it will operate smoothly.

The elevation in your yard where you wash your truck is three feet higher then the rest of the yard. Not to mention it is the only place in your yard where four different types of grass grow.

Your woman can't find any cooking oil or Pam in the house, because your trying to cut down on weight by making mud not stick to the underside of your truck.

Re: M ight be a muddragger if

<font color=purple>Guilty of #2, 3, 4, & 6. Also of:

If you have smaller front tires than rear tires

If you have different axle widths to compensate for different tire widths front to rear

If you know the part # of your starter by heart

If you know who else in the pit carries that same starter as a spare

If you've ever robbed parts off a street truck or tow vehicle to be able to run another class

If you know what "decline the cable" means (mud BOGGER term [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img])

If you think trucks with droopy rear suspension look cool

If you can recommend final drive ratios to anyone based on a single look at their truck

If you think the best steering box comes from a Pinto

If you've ever noticed your tow vehicle struggling much harder on the way home than on the way TO the race due to the extra weight (mud)
