Re: Wheels Up Anyone?

Is he pulling anything??? [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img] Hanging the hides on pavement is cool but in a 4x4 on mud [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] That is a hooking MF. A 4 link I assume?

That pick is giving me a chubby [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] [img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]

<font color="purple">No 4-link. He also runs Super Stock which does not allow that kind of suspension (nor the cuts he has on in this pic). The 555" Rehr-Morrison under the hood helps a little [img]images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]</font color>

<font color="purple">NOBODY who's serious about it runs a 60 in mud. Too much weight &amp; too little ground clearance. The 2,000HP Pro Modifieds run 30's [img]images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

Re: Wheels Up Anyone?

wow, I didn't know that. I know I broke my 1/2 ton fronts with a dead 305 so I could only imagine 2,000 ponys. Mud is more forgiving too I spose than rocks and solid stuff but still. Do they run alloy parts and such?

Re: Wheels Up Anyone?

<font color="purple">Mud is more forgiving in general than rocks as far as hard parts are concerned. And when we break, it's ususally not the same stuff y'all break. Front axles are relatively common failures in deep mud, though Ring &amp; Pinion is probably just as common. I've never wasted an axle, but 2 D30 R&amp;P's, one 10-bolt R&amp;P, 2 Toy R&amp;P's (one front, one rear). Driveshafts are probably #1 in shallow stuff, wasted one of those myself, though in deep slop. As for the 2,000HP guys, 95+% of the stress goes toward their rearends. Most are semi-float 60's with LOTS of splines. This one's a step down in "Modified" class. No blower, but 622" + injection + methanol + nitrous: </font color>
