  1. I have a full 2-gallon jug and a bit of Swepco 212 trans oil. If anybody uses this in their sandcar let me know and make me an offer on it. I need to clear my garage. Also, have about 18 left over Zeus bolts with nylon washers. Make me an offer!

    Dumont entrance road updates

    Ok, was just wondering if the BLM ever uses the piece of equipment they brought with our money(user fees) either last year or the yr. before. It is a pull behind a 1-ton truck that tills the road and than re-lays the dirt back in and smooths it out. Just curious as to where the money is going.

    Dumont entrance road updates

    Was it the actual road grader or a large truck pulling a triangle type grader?

    If you camp to the left of the road than you can see ridges that flow outward an are covered with small rocks. This makes a firm pathway. However, you want to stay out of the valleys between the ridges of rock as they can be soft. If you have to cross one of them, look for tracks and build up a steady head of steam as you go to cross them. If you choose to go to the right the area between bathroom 6 and the last finger or around the rockpile is usually pretty firm. Any way you go pay attention to other's tracks and if it looks like it's soft trust me it is. I would also prior to hitting the road, check your MH frame for a good spot to hook on, most pushers don't really have a good spot forward and the hitch is the best spot to get hooked up on. Trailers can always be picked up and brought to you after you get unstuck. Carry at least one really good stretch strap maybe 2. Good luck!

    Long travel two seater

    Benny, congratulations on taking that step. Cars are truly fun! The Admin for this site has a Tech 3 with a turbo's Honda and I believe a Mendiola @d Trans. His car is smooth, fast and reliable. I had a 2 seat Alumicraft which started out with a Northstar twin turbo motor and the Mendi 4S trans, After a lot of headaches and money I junked the caddy motor and went to a twin turbo'd LS1 and the same trans.I would never recommend the caddy motor unless you are a mechanic and know about these engines. As for chassis, there is a difference between the makers as to what kind of steel tubing they use, some go with mild steel and others go with chrome-moly. It depends on basically money and how much you have to put up. I always felt safe in my Alumicraft with the chrome=moly but I have no doubt that Pete feels just as safe in his Tech 3 which does use mild steel. It depends on how you drive it, which he pushes his as hard as any of them if not more. So I guess what I can tell you is buy the most car you can afford and always match the engine to the tranny, in my opinion, if you're going V8 power than you really want an S-4 trans and if you're going Honda or a V-6 or 4 then you can use the 2S trans. I would always suggest that you get a car with front brakes and make sure that the seat harnesses are not expired and are in great shape. Your ass is held in by them and you don't want to scrimp on safety! I also recommend that you obtain a set of arm restraints for your passenger and your outside arms. I have been out of sandcars for a couple of years so I am sure others will chime in with the other information you need. You hit a good time to ask as they are at Dumont for the Annual buggy run, so when everybody gets home you should get more info. Good luck.
  13. Probably quicker if you don't need supplies to go to Tecopa. For $10.00 you can dump out and they supply all the sewer hose and water to spray out your tank. If you need supplies it may be beneficial to go to Pahrump for gas, groceries and D/O. Would be cheaper in the long run. Probably about 20 minutes to Tecopa or 40 to Pahrump.

    Dunicorn sighting at Dumont

    Santa must have sent one of the reindeer for the letters! 42 years I have been going to Dumont and I have never seen a deer or tracks of anything other than lizards and coyote.

    Slight Breeze

    Just got in and weather is a slight breeze and 73 degrees. Winds are bad coming into Tecopa but once over the pass they calm down.
