Not bad. But if it was windy it may be annoying.  I’ll have to get a pic of it next to the BBOE. Loving my bus more and more!

    Been fun… as usual.. Cole is awesome.. and I enjoy his company!!!! I’ve grown quite close to Cole… He is a FINE example of an awesome young man… Who is also Prime Rib for the chick market….. 😎 😎 Prime rib for the working market also.. His bus looks killer… Shasta ready! 😎 😎

    JJ and I were talking that after Shasta this year all I’ve been thinking about is Shasta 2021! How can I get my bus more ready, new route, fill the time, etc… Shasta and trips like that are the goal! Nothing like it.

    as always thanks for the space to learn and work alongside you guys the last couple years. Learned a lot. Lots of good memories. Spent lots of nights at Hotel KCW(thanks Gretchen!) So many good times! More to come.

     

    Monster truckin! Looking good Cole. Yeah, we made adjusters out of flywheel teeth…like Wagens West did back in the day.

    thanks for all the help Franz. Felt like I was stuck beating my head in a corner a couple times. Always fun hanging with you. We will need to get out in buses soon

    Anybody used one of these on their bus? Seems like a good idea. Would probably help with hopping in the corners and help with my bus now that my rear has so much camber. But after JJ broke his front sway bar off on Shasta I am worried that the same would happen on the rear?…. Thinking of front sway bar and rear camber compensator unless I hear bad things….

    You need to find original clamps for the sway bar.

    Not sure about the camber compensator. I don’t understand the engineering. It pivots in the middle.

    Cool. Wayner also used u bolts at each end of the sway bar. Was that how JJ had his set up?

       Well… If the girls are going.. I guess we could put them all in the same bus and they could go all slow and shit in the back of the pack???  😎  😎

    I’m glad your thinking about it… it is THE MOST FUN you can have driving a split bus and with ONLY other split busses… 😎  We all break something… 😎
