Hope everyone watched both videos.. Man it’s fun doing that short course stuff.. Racing side by side with other cars… passing back and forth… LOVE it!!! It’s like the RC racing I used to do…
No more Desert racing for me.. 😎 I enjoy driving out there, I hate breaking out there…. 😎
April is the next race.. at Glenn Helen.. which is a fun place too!!!!!

I never showed you my axle diff thing.
the axle and the Slot should be lined up. I can’t get that out!!! I can’t get the other side out either.. which is why I couldn’t just change axles 😎😎😎😎😎 I bet the center section is fine.

So, do you need to split the tranny to get the axles out??? Guess this can be a back up transmission now!!😃👍John JonesModeratorFebruary 25, 2023 at 5:31 amPost count: 13376
The trans in my car belongs to Donnie. He wants it back🤫🤫
I need to get my trans over to painters. Don’t really want to cut the axle.. but could so I can ship it. I broke the match to it anyway 👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻 Those were my lightweight axles.. Hey, guess what, even the turned down axle broke at the spade!!! Every time!

What about nerf bars???? Maybe sticking out up by the front fender also… and something tying the back of the fender to them also, rear fender too??
The term Nerf assumes some “nerfing”🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫🤫
im thinking of calling them “bumper car bars”👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻

I’m gonna build some fender braces similar to what Blake has… then connect those with some 3/4 Then tie that back to the running board bolts…. And then up to the front and rear 1/4’s!! So front and back and equally strong!!! They will sorta look like huge wide running boards…. You would be able to stand on them!!!😁😁😁😁

Next Gas race is at Glen Helen in April… 22nd I think.. rounds 2/3.. 😎
I’m gonna try and make it to all the races in this series this year…!!!!
I need to get my trans over to painters… I need to get a few things to painters.. I need to just drive over there… 😎 But I want to roads to be clear before I head over there… 😎
