    Started putting my stuff back together and guess what????☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️☹️   One of my axles Fell out of the diff👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻👎🏻  Fuck.. I had to take it all back out again and redo one side down to putting the axles in the fulcrums !!  What a bitch when you have an aftermarket diff without end gears…   The have it back together and in.
    Gonna work on my race car today.. gotta leave in the morning and I still have some shit to do🤫🤫🤫🤫

    with the diff I have.. it’s like a spool.   No end gears.  No clips, no washers… The axle is completely held in the trans by the axle tube..  which is why I run them big ol washers…8-)  I lightly pulled the axle out, the bearing just slipped out of the housing and bam…8-(

    Thanks guys!! Qualifiers was interesting today… we were smooth and fast and the car felt great!! Then the hood flew open on us in the end of the short course 🙈🙈🙈🙈🙈 JJ kept it pinned despite the hood being stuck open and although we lost some time we didn’t do so bad! Qualified 5th!!! Probably 6th because Ryan’s time was off on his transponder, but either way 5th or 6th!! Best qualifier we’ve had so far racing!! We felt FAST out there 🤙🏻😎  qualifier was 2.5 miles D5CCAD29-56A1-4A93-9BAF-0FEAA8905CC1

    F827E104-05A7-4985-832A-27A2D7F991A9

    full lap is 13.5…  so later in the afternoon we went on a full track fun run! The track was nice – it’s like a long short course! Pretty groomed and fast!!

    Tomorrow we stage at 8 am for our first main! Second race is Sunday morning!
