My trucks startin to think it is special

Well as many kow I busted the spiders in the front end, so I finally welded them, put all new bearings on, new front rotors, new calipers, and brake pads, the GF thinks it is for saftey but realy so I can bring it up farther on the brakes

wait until the first pass when mud gets crammed in the calipers and eats up the pads.

just giving you hell. Part of the game I guess.


We should put our motors in a car so we dont have to deal with the washing, changing muddy tires and fixing busted parts 20 times a season.

those 1/4 mile guys dont know how good theyve got it

My truck is sitting also.


I had back surgery about a month ago and I cant do stupid junk like mud race for 6 months. When I go to VA in October it will be the first time my truck has run in a pit since May.

Talking

77 mud how do you clean the under side do you use a water sprinkler that how we used to clean the bottom after we went and played in the mud at the river we used the one with the fan pattern that goes back and forth let it set for hour and you would have hunks of mud every where let it go from front to rear then turn it for it will go from side to side

That sounds like a fine idea.

about an hour with the pressure washer does the trick.

The mud I run in is too thick to get off with a sprinkler. A solution of baby oil and water works good to keep the mud from sticking but I usually think about it half way through my first pass.
