  1. Yes sorry to not put up a public reply. This is at Sandhills Resort
  2. So our family planned to go to Idaho June 29- July 6 Unfortunately due to work demands we cannot get there. 4 spots. Sites 52, 106, 107, 108 I know its short notice but I thought I should throw it out there in case anyone can use them Let me know
  3. All the wind Dumont is getting has her looking SOOO SOOOO GOOD. Sucks your car broke but getting out and enjoying a weekend away is still winning!
  4. My brother was out there and said the same thing about the carnage. He said the helicopter must have never shut down. As soon as it left it returned for somebody else.
  5. I'm pretty sure that is going to happen at Buttercup. I think there is a meet and camp similar to the buggy roundup but its at an actual rv park in Yuma or somebody that has some acreage to park rigs. I am pretty sure the info is on the old school buggy instagram page.
  6. Are the shocks bypasses? Some cool stuff out there from the manufacturers now. The work turned out nice. You should not have to worry about that anymore.
  7. At this point anything cooler than 100 degrees is welcome. Looks like a fun trip but 30 degrees now would be like living in antártica
  8. No. But we saw them building houses nearby that were of the modern touch that could’ve been that way. I have some pictures from the other side but it would not let me upload them because of size. Nevermind. It works today. Go figure.
  9. We went to Eden, Ut a few weeks ago. Nice place. Somebody left a huge metal paper airplane in the forest. Nice lake, best of all cool weather. The rim in Arizona is a spectacular place. My wife grew up in one of the small towns East of there. One of my favorite places especially for monsoon season.

    V8rail Build

    The car ran good. New gear set in the diff was pretty good. Maybe another set might be better but its pretty close for now. I am thinking I may like this ratio a lot for Dumont. I am excited to find out. The new arms held up fine so far. I felt like I gave them a pretty good beating, but maybe more time will tell. The new torque converter was much better than the old one. I played with bypass adjustment that made quite a bit of difference. I still have to much rebound in the rear but I still have more adjustability in the shock. Overall it was a good trip. My 2nd oldest got to rip around in his Grandma's car. It was fun having him out learning to dune a buggy.

    Oh and I also put a limited slip diff in the quick change. So far in the hardpack it’s 100% better. I need to get it into the sand to see how well it will work there. I think I’ve finally got the right ratio/gear set in there too. Should be a lot of fun. Swapped the torque converter too. I had a basically stock converter at 1800 stall. I switched it with a 2300 stall and it seems to help also.
