  1. Those things are four wheel drive, probably could have drove it out under its own power!
  2. I don’t want to turn this into an ls vs Honda vs subi thread, we all know the Subaru’s cost a fortune to make that kind of power, LS could be done a few different ways. i think doing the honda’s Would be a great idea, they’re plentiful in junk yards, and no ones building them, there’s definitely a market for them looking at how many sand cars are already running them, and it would be less expensive for most of these Honda guys to build a motor than to swap to an LS for the same power.
  3. I think it’s gonna depends on the price, don’t you need an aftermarket block at those power numbers on a Honda?
  4. Finally some fresh sand! Had a great weekend at Glamis this weekend!
  5. One of the main issues with the Mendeola 2d main shaft bearings is that they dry out when sitting for extended periods of time, and the main shaft spins when the car is idling, so if the cars been sitting for day a week or longer, and you start the car, the main shaft bearing are spinning while they aren’t lubricated. Kevin mcmullen recommended to jack the car up and put it in gear when running it if it’s been sitting more than a few days. I cant speak for the 3 piece front main shaft bearings though, not sure if he used those in my trans or something else.
  6. My front crank seal started leaking on my old ls1, when I went to replace it I found that there was way to much crank shaft end play from worn main/thrust bearings like others have said. Mine was bad enough that you could grab the crank pulley and pull the crankshaft forward and back, it was about .040 out of spec, so I would check that just to be sure.
  7. Anyone running this new swepco 164 cv grease? On kartek’s website it says you don’t need to mix it with bel ray, so I’m thinking about giving it a try when I replace my boots. Any thoughts or experience with it?
  8. 350whp is doable on your motor with a good cam, maybe a little more.
  9. With how cheap Honda motors are at junk yards it may be worth putting a j35a4 or j32a2 back in it (400-700 bucks)
  10. Give Gary Martin at bst fabrication a call, he can fix anything and is in Mesa. ‭(480) 495-5932‬
  11. Yes sounds like the shocks need to be rebuilt, there’s a piston with seals that separates the oil and nitrogen inside the reservoir. Sounds like that o-ring is bad.
  12. If it’s ready now I probably am not the best option. I wouldn’t have time until probably the day after thanksgiving at the soonest, going to Glamis next weekend for about a week.
  13. I’d be interested depending on timing. Where’s it located?
  14. That makes sense, I guess the only disadvantage would be clearance for the sump on some cars
  15. Yeah I will be home this weekend, the 16/17th
  16. I’m in gilbert az, can bring to Glamis when I go. Asking 300 obo
  17. I have a gto oil pan for sale if you want it, with pickup tube and windage tray, not sure what the advantage/disadvantage would be vs an f body pan, I just stuck with the f body pan on my ls2 due to already having an f body dipstick and dipstick tube
  18. Luckily swapping to a j35a4 is easy and they’re pretty cheap at the junk yard! That 3.2 should move it through the dunes just fine though!
  19. All of the recommended cars would be good, Kia and Hyundai are surprisingly good cars! Stay away from anything European!
  20. A gas truck would be fine, really if you only tow twice a year it would make more sense to buy a half ton and just pay someone like @L.R.S. to transport your trailer for you twice a year
  21. Sweet, sounds like I will take you up on that! We will be out Thursday night!
  22. Your posts always make me hungry! 😂 i follow a bunch of random sand car people, most of which I don’t know lol
