I must be a vag. I dont think I could pick up a 13 gal gas can and dump it into a fuel filler without falling over and spilling it everywhere.

That is a good point. That is like almost 2 sacks of feed at once. It would be fine in an adrenaline situation I am sure but damn heavy.

The rig is looking good :dblthumb:
Cya on the lakebed, we will be there Saturday Morning.

As for the gopro. Mount it in between the seats about shoulder high so you can see the dash, steering wheel, GPS and so on. Mount the SD camera on the dash facing back at you and your copilot. That IMO is the best camera set up for the race. Shots of the hood are kind of boring for OCD people like myself. :dblthumb: Oh and use the roll cage mounts - The rest wont last. The metal mounts that are $60 are worth the money if you ever lose a camera........

Ive got to put some video stuff together for some people so we will be doing a ton of filming. If you guys are interested in a sponsor/promo video shoot me a pm.

Yeah I put a mount up on the underside of the roof. And a few in various places in the rear of the buggy to watch the suspension work. Look for us out there, we will be in the RuffStuff pits which is 39, 40 and 41 on the pit map. We should be on the lakebed by Saturday afternoon.

Can you mount a GoPro so we know it is Jab when he flys by? I know Miles will have his ass out.

So this was the last piece we were waiting on, the front driveshaft. It is a 4340 Axle shaft splined at one end for a spicer slip yoke and the other end is machined to take a 1350 Atlas Yoke. After all that, it was heat treated. Not only are there no welds to fail but it should be super stout. Thanks to Jimmy at EOR for getting this piece made for me.

We are leaving for KOH tomorrow evening, wish us luck.

I wish you the best of luck in racing for second place. I know Mr. Nasty has first locked, but we can't all be winners.
