The next race is March 20, 2010. The Balls Out 250 in Barstow, CA.

Our intention is to arrive Thur evening or Fri morn. Hopefully, we'll have the trailer with us this time....

And, once again, this race conflicts with a Hooli outing. This time, the Glamis Trip....sorry....

Is anyone interested in coming?

SoCal
03-21-2010, 01:24 AM
They disintegrated the drive belt, then had an issue trying to replace it. Looked to me like oil from the Trans breather or possibly from a small power steering leak got on it and thats what did it in.

s@ndm@n
03-21-2010, 03:30 PM
Yeah. We think oil from the gearbox breather got on the belt, causing it to slip and overheat. Sucks. No way it was a field repair without more tools. Took Todd, Buggs, John, and Jay (Eric's buddy) over an hour to pull all the kevlar threads out. Then to get the spreader tool out that broke in the field trying to open the clutch plates, they used a tongue jack to compress the spring and remove a c clip to separate the plates. Told Todd, the chase vehicle needs to include a trailer next time. :D Car is under it's own power now.

2 laps completed. Broke 1/4 mile before RM17, on the flats near Slash X. Was doing a pretty good job of keeping a 5 unlimited car behind us right before that. He got behind us on the wash after the College Hills ridge, and stayed there until RM16 1/2 when we noticed the car was running rather hot... slowed to let him pass, and when I got back on the throttle the belt blew. I tried to let him pass after he nerfed us in the main wash, moved off the fast line, but never lifted... gave him about 1/2 mile of clean line... he couldnt. :D Too bad, so sad... :rotfl:

A few minor fixes and we should be good for the next race.

I will add that I too had a fun time at the race. Big thanks to all the guys who came out to help in some way. Whether it way toppig fuel, checking fluids,tires, etc... All the help was appreciated and recognized.

The car did have a small problem with the drive belt, and yes the transmission pulley swallowed some of the belt. However, had it been a longer race, I know the car would have been back in. Everything was fully reassembled (after taking a nice lunch) before the 250 race was over.

Overall great weekend and good times. Thanks Eric and Wendy for racing the car and allowing others to join in.

diirk
03-29-2010, 02:07 PM
You know, just to reiterate, we really appreciate everyones help during the race. We probably had fewer people pitting then any other race, but you guys got it done.

John (eagleone) caught a huge potential problem with the front end, and he, along with Phil, Dave, Todd and Duane jumped in and got it fixed pronto. Great job!

We were fueled up and all the fluids checked in less time then it took for me to get in the car. A really great job all around.

I just can't say enough how much I appreciate everyones support. Without all your help, there's no way we could even contemplate running this series.

Thanks to everyone!!!

We are working with some of the other 3000 teams (work in progress) for shared pits. One of the thoughts is a 1/2 way remote pit. Hopefully with some members of each team. Hope is we wont feel short handed at any pit with 3-4 or more teams working together.
