    Dude 1: Hey, what's for lunch when we get back to camp? Dude 2: Not sure, we had a ham sandwich yesterday. And last time we were out here, Stacy made everyone a real nice casserole. Dude 1: Stacy had to go home today. Her cat ran away. Dude 2: That's too bad, was that Sylvester or Morris? Little Kid: My sister had a cat named Sylvester. Little Kid: Hey Uncle Frank, can you hear me? on and on, my goodness it is out of control.

    I stepped up and joining the club here. Car is everything I had hoped it would be and more. Already ordered new LED lights for it and I'm hoping to do a dash and hood on it in the offseason.

    Just a reminder for everyone, All radios have over 120 frequencies in them over 4 banks. The first bank is the most popular and where most people are on. Yes, your friends all MOST LIKELY have those same frequencies. Every single radio that leaves PCI or Rugged comes with those frequencies. Banks 3 and 4 have frequencies you can go all day long on and not hear anyone. If you are unsure on how to access those frequencies, call me at PCI and I will help you find them on an Icom or Kenwood radio! If you would like a copy of the PDF with All frequencies across all zones/banks, email me at Alleigh@pciraceradios.com and I will be happy to email it back! For safety reasons, its always a good idea for a passenger to have a PTT. There has been many cases in a roll over or medical emergency, passenger needs to be able to call out if driver is unable to.

    And yeah its true Jason is not the ONLY supplier of 934's .. so for sake of completeness... Here is my 2 cents Lobro/GKN are OE on VW and Porsche and have several models of CV depending on Application, they vary in quality and materials, some are made in Germany, and some made in Mexico and South America (mostly Brazil). These are the base most companies use to make RACE versions. They essential polish the race (outside) and the Star to remove stress risers from manufacturing and this also "loosens" the action to allow more travel without binding and heat, it also allows a bit more grease in the CV to lube and cool.They usually replace the Cage with a Chromo or 300M version for strength when the CV plunges and gets into extreme angles. The balls are almost alway GKN, but some companies source them from Industrial hardware makers. Some even crack check the assemblies (especially stars). A few companies like RCV, Gear One (gone now), RBP, and Fortin to name a few made their own CV's in the USA from "better" materials and hardening processes and in the case or RCV coatings as well. As mentioned before EMPI also makes their own CV's and have several versions. In any case CV's should be considered "Consumables" on High HP and heavy Sand Cars IMO Angle (up / down and back / front as its additive), HP/TQ, tire size/tire aggressiveness, car weight, driving habits, and maintenance are what I see as determining factors as to whether CV's last or not, or how much you should spend. For instance, if your car is always running at a pretty severe angle you will wear your CV's faster - they will get hotter and the cage will wear faster... same is true with different wear and breakage points due to the other factors. Maintenance and grease are HUGE factors that go together. Grease is a Chevy/Ford argument, everyone has an opinion. I have personally changed grease a dozen times in the last 15 years and definitely use different grease for 930's than I do for 934's. even the boots you use and whether your car is full body or not has an affect on the heat in CV ( heat is a killer). Changing or adding grease is a trip to trip maintenance point IMO - and don't fill the boot with grease - that just holds the heat in and kills the CV. Some people swear by Empi's because you can, for the price throw them away at the end of the season rather than clean and rebuild them, others swear they fail constantly... I say its back to Maintenance and other factors - Personally I think Heat treat from China is less consistent than in the US ( personal testing shows that), but not everyone has a Rockwell hardness tester at home... so some may be great, others not so great, but 934's are overkill in most under 600HP-700HP cases (on lighter cars (under 2700Lbs) At this point in my Duning life, I lean toward experience with the particular car and setup in recommendations.... FWIW

    So this just happened, such a awesome feeling g to see her achive these goals. "If you know me...you know I’ve been attempting to commission. Yesterday that was achieved! Guys, I DID IT! If you’re interested in some more details then keep reading...I applied to three separate commissioning programs; however, I wanted one specifically. The Senior Leader Enlisted Commissioning Program allows me to stay active duty and go to school full time. There was ONE person the 4 STAR GENERAL could choose in USAFE-AFAFRICA. USAFE - AFAFRICA comprises of 35,000 Active Duty, Reserve, Guard, and Civilians. It consists of one numbered Air Force, 7 main operating bases, and 114 geographically spectated units. IM TRYING TO SAY...ITS A LOT OF PEOPLE AND THEY CHOOSE ME! So what does that mean? I get Staff Sergeant pay to go to college and pursue my Bachelors in Computer Science! A lot of people are asking me where I’m going to college...I don’t know! I don’t know where Preston Boyce and I are headed. We have so much to figure out together. California and Florida are considerations but who knows. We have so much ahead of us and I can’t wait. Preston is so incredibly supportive and I’m so grateful for him. Finally, there are SO many people who got me here. I get so emotional thinking about all the support I’ve received throughout my career. THANK YOU to everyone who ever helped me. Watch out for Lt Boyce! ?"

    I’m back in a buggy! After selling my Bronco and gayzr I was finally able to pick up my dream car. Some may know the nightmare I had with Dave about 4 years ago I was starting to build my dream car but that went south quick. So I picked this car up a 2007 DD true dual sport 1 5/8” radius roof chassis boxed front lower and rear arms 2” uniball spindles 3.0 rear bypasses full body LS1 and 2d (going to do a S4 swap next summer). This is my 3rd DD car and finally got the car I wanted. See ya in G!

    Radio's are nice to have but I don't know who these people are sitting at camp listening to it, waiting to bring parts and tools. The people that don't go on the runs are usually not someone that could assemble the tools and parts needed for a fix, let alone get them to you.

    I’m game, and when I go sxs, I’ll go Honda. Born and raised Honda, from the MR50 on up. I still think my 400ex I had, with +2 a arms and +2 axle was the best handling machine in the dunes, and bullet proof. Any Honda I’ve owned has handled better than any other brand I’ve owned, and handling is the most important to me, and that goes for 2, 3, and 4 wheels. I do love my Yamaha 450r, but it doesnt handle like my old TRX I sold. Big mistake getting rid of that. I may repossess it. If it has the typical top notch handling like a true Honda, I’m in. We shall see. Plus, it’s red, how cool is that.

    OK this is for all the LS guys some of these tools you can get at harbor freight the other at autozone, do not worry if you do not want to purchase these tools please stop posting and drop the car off at a mechanic first start the car let it warm up for a minute or two then take a water bottle and drop a little water near the head on the ex pipes, if it sizzles like water in a pan them the car is running on the cylinder A. if the all sizzle we can move to the next step, B. if you do not have one or two or 3 sizzle then we know we have a dead cylinder, take the spark check wire from harbor and put it inline so we can see if the light blinks if it does yes we have spark from the coil but still can be a plug issue UNLESS IT IS A FACTORY ECM only run a copper core plug a iridium plug can destroy a mefi or a AEM over time, NGK TR5 or 6 is a good plug for a sand car, natural asp C. next if we have spark but still a dead cylinder (no sizzle on pipe) then take a noid test kit from autozone and plug it into the injector plug if it blinks when running then the pulse is good and it can be a bad injector D. No sizzle on pipe dead hole, ------ also after doing A B C then change the plug and see if the plug reads the same as the rest if looks different can be a injector the spark test will tell you if you have a bad wire COIL or bad plug E. No sizzle on pipe dead hole -- if you check both with noid tool and spark tool and one is bad it can be a harness or a ECM issue Now our group is a little different every one that camps with us has there own software to there ECM mandatory camp rule for us, because time is valuable to waist so Pull up the software and look a the fuel trim if you have over 20% trim might have a bad O2 sensor also look at the TPS voltage and it needs to be micro smooth if the voltage is not smooth then replace the TPS, the time and money at just throwing sensor at a system pays for the software you can also drive the vehicle with a camera on the fuel pressure gauge if it drops more thank 15-20 lbs under load most likely fuel pressure issue when a having a LS motor only only only only only use AC delco sensors if not you should be raped in a 3rd world prison twice change the TPS sensor if big flat spot or runs wrong this is like a accelerator pump on a carb the IAC is only for idle issue

    Another quick tip - maybe common knowledge for u gd guys. Couple years ago I was a total newbie in the oregon dunes and got my rzr800 stuck. Guy shows up and leans on the cage (works better with 2 people) and starts rocking the rzr. Every time he rocked it, he kicked a bit of sand under the tire. 2 min later I was unstuck, no tow strap or anything.....
