Reiter pit on Sunday!!!

Post by ranger5.0 » Wed Jan 26, 2005 9:09 pm

The wives are going to a candle party on Sunday, so my brother-in-law and I are taking the kiddo's to Reiter. Derek has a Samuri on 33's that we built. Come one, come all. We will probably show up around 10 or 11:00 am. :redneck:

I only saw one BII up there today and he turned around at the ponds before the wall. I must be getting better at this wheelin' thing cause my fullsize made it to the wall with barely a tree rubbing. ;) Good Time :redneck:

Ya, the front sway bar is still connected cause I haven't got the extended brake lines yet. Here's another Sami pict. My nephew isn't to impressed with it though. :D

The zuke is always entertaining since it doesn't have any low gears yet. We strip'er down when we get to the trail to build power. I think I saw 35 pounds per horsepower :redneck: . We went and chased a baja around the pit last night. When I went to unload the truck this mornin' I found this :hmmm: . I don't recall any failures or loud noises, I will pull the cover and investigate.

After exploratory surgery I found the pile of spiders and mangled cross-pin at the bottom of the diff.

Looks like the cross-pin failed. If you look closely you will see that the debris gouged the carrier and broke the head off of the bolt the holds the cross-pin in. So the carrier is toast. Now I need to find some 3:73's and a carrier. :wtf: I thought 44's were tough!!!!. I think my dana 28 lasted longer before it blew. :redneck:
