Default lonely Indy run

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

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

Only carnage was yet another winch rope 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

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 powerI'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
