lonely Indy run
 
5 Attachment(s)
thought the trip reports have been a bit boring lately, and we had a great run to Indy today:)

Just Jon and myself, mostly Toyotas...I am still "keeping it real" 22R style :)

perfect day though, 71 and sunny, and even better not a single other soul to be found:D

We dropped in about 10 AM, and though we both had to winch out of the exit, we were back at the trailers by 10:50 having lunch. We went around and ran Liberty backwards, and then climbed out of Bunker Hill and were loaded up to leave by 12:45:D

Only carnage was yet another winch rope:rant: and my passenger side limit strap.

I think I pinched the rope on a rock as I use it as a limit strap up front now. I will figure out how to re-weave this week:rolleyes:

I suppose :) So far so good with the new front suspension, have a little more tweaking to do. I adjusted the pinion angle so no more vibrations...but I still have no power:rolleyes:I'm sure I will be there.
I played with oil and nitrogen levels last week and it made HUGE differences, sidehilling is as good or better than it was with leafs, still figuring out climbing.

Sounds like a lot of work! I am going to try and finish the bumper/rear cage this winter and that is it. I had a bender lined up but he/it moved to Texas. Need to line another one up or may have to switch to an easier bending tube.

Looks like everything held up just fine during the run. I don't think the snow run will put that much strain on your rig;)

See ya on the snow:thumb:
