Transmission and transfer case

Me again,how about an overdrive transmission, they say they can build them to withstand wild horsepower. Then follow it up with an scs gearbox. Between the two should be able to get the gearing you need. No need to slow down, just go fast.

Soo, bludorbronc, you do realize that a powerglide is a 2 speed automatic transmission right?

Hey Garrin. I think the suspension got really hot on the first lap and the front rebound started blowing through really quickly. Sort of my fault on setup. (I placed the rebound tube a little to high to catch it in the rebound bump zone) That caused the limit strap to stretch and the balls literally fell out of the CV.

This was after I had already ran to pit 2 to get a driveline after tapping a rock on the yoke and having the cap spit out. Then, I thought it would help the batteries to winch Jack with the fan's off and while I was out winding the cable back in, it overheated enough to lose the water and I couldn't legally find a way to replenish the system with enough fluid to keep it out of limp mode. Had I just ran to main pit and back I could have finished but I kept thinking a little more pee might be enough. This led to a comical situation where the course workers wanted to know if I was okay and I said I was out of water and out of pee...they called the EMT's thinking I was dehydrated I was fine, just bummed. Car was SO GOOD in the desert and amazing in the rocks it's just a shame it's never had the finish it deserved. Going to moth-ball it until KOH next year.

Great job out there Jason, it was amazing to see how well that car worked in the rocks even in 3wd! Hate to hear you won't be running the series this year

That makes a lot more sense.... when I heard the call on KOH1 that you needed medical, I was very surprised.... no way did you plan that poorly that you made yourself sick.
Way happier that you were bummed, and not sick.

Can I rent the car for NorCal??

Well... You were the only one to make that section on Jack and with 3-wheel drive at that. Currie/ Savvy tried before you and they ended up pulling that huge rock down that you winched over. They gave up but you made it. Nice job man!

Do you have pictures of your tube placement?
You can add larger internal spacers on your shocks so that it grabs if the limit strap fails. Could even stagger the spacers in both shocks so if the straps fail and bypass rips out the coilover spacer could still keep the CV alive.

With the spacer you have in it do you not have any bump phase on full extension?

I think people would have paid good money to listen to Dave explain the next morning why you were DQ'd if you would have accepted a whole bunch of water, drank it, and then pee'd it into the rad

I can't wait to see it in action again next year.

sad to hear about no racing this year, but glad it wasnt anything major and just some tweaks that will fix the issues. I was stoked to see you with pole position and then to take the right line at JH

jason is arguably the most talented rock crawler to date. jason has forgotten more about rocks than 90 percent of other racers will ever learn.
