All good stuff.

So the new 5/8's Rods arrive today, with 5/8's heims....non-chromoly. They're are sending new standard 1/2" heims, to put in my current rods to use as a spare.

Once I get the 5/8's....looking for Chromoly 5/8's would be a great upgrade and certainly WAY WAY stronger than 1/2" standard that I just recently broke.

Got my draw last night....



Got 5th out of 36. Unfortunately....The UTV draw was the for the WHOLE field.....then they will be broken down by class. Unlimited first....then Production 1000, then the rest. So what that means is.....I'll be behind all the Unlimited cars...but at the front of the Prod 1000 field.

Test at Prairie City went well.....

Front set up 74/26 and rear setup 55/45. Didn't get any bad bucking on jumps.

watching your helmets it looked like even when you flew it still sucked up the landing nicely.

It would be fun sometime to do a "chase car" view - maybe someone with a cam on a quad right next to it.
