    LS variation help

    JApler, new rings, do hone the cylinders? or leave them as is. Just curious. Old school, was hone. If the bore is good, new rings have layer to wear into bore?

    Question for the sequential guys

    Can you put it in reverse with the engine running? Like a quad, rocking back and forth with clutch. Then shut engine off, clutch out, and starter walk it out? Arm chair driving, you should have grabbed a left brake and got the right side of car lined up with the bottom, then powered out. shees

    2000 F250 7.3 upgrades (Manual hubs installed)

    If you find a source please post. Thinking its going to be a tech. I looked on-line for our 14 Explorer. Not a lot of newer stuff online yet. Door handle lock/uplock sensor doesn't work. Ford Dealer found a connector with corrosion, and quoted $2,500 to wire around the connector. I just need the door pinouts where the connector is. Wifes car, do just cant start taking things apart to find it.

    Gear One Super Stub Conversion?

    The issue with a VW stub is if the stub breaks the wheel leaves the car. A VW stub has two jobs, power transfer and hold the wheel. All the weight, bumps are relying on a 1.2" dia shaft. The micro stubs, the unit bearing is big large diameter bearing is holding the weight of the vehicle. The stub is just transferring power to the wheels. Much more reliable design.

    Gear One Super Stub Conversion?

    My car has the Empi micro stubs in it. It's bee problem free for 11 years they have been in the car. Low boost 2.5 turbo subaru and 091 in a five seat car. It uses Wilwood calipers, so pads are available just about anywhere. The other parts are more or less universal. I carry a large diameter bolt that matches the stub diameter, washers and lock nut. If the stub breaks, you put the bolt in the bearing carrier in place of the stub to keep the stub bearing together while towing. I haven't had to use it yet...

    Wall frame advise

    Wire expands and contracts with heat cycles and the wire could oxidize or corrode. Both causing connection issues. Can't tell you how many times I've been into boxes tightening wire nuts because of bad connections.

    What do you consider full bump?

    I have 4-inches of clearance at full bump and flat profile Dune sport tires. Skid plate was all bent up from all the hard hits. Took the skid plat off. The hard hits went away also. No skid plate is way better.

    I cant believe the flood of sandrail sales!

    Classic Burt, simple solutions to complex problems. Why install a whole bunch of wires and gauge? When one site tube and valve will work. During the race for the x price Burt was working on Space Ship 1, they needed a way regulate cabin pressure... The solution, drill a hole in the fuselage and put a cork in it. On the way in when the cabin pressure got too high elevation wise, the pilot has to pull the cork out, wait till it stabilzied, and put the cork back in. lol

    Let’s discuss Quick Release whip mounts

    Safetywhips.com has quick disconnect, similar to an air chuck. I've heard of issues where this bounces loose. Try running a zip tie under the collar to keep it from slidding down. You'll have to cut the zip tie loose every time. Or a cotter pin bent up to fit the groove.

    Japler drills CV's for zerks. Better then the grease saver. BFH is all you need to get it out.

    Wheel help

    You have Bogarts. They break easily. Bogart is in Phoenix. He'll cut out the old billet center and weld in a new one. But he'll be the first to say that those wheels were made for VW cars. The cars got too heavy and the wheel design didn't change. Disc brakes, Bogart has an option to machine in boss for the disc rotor. An SU in the group, broke a front Bogart. The other side was cracking. Joe Fab welded it in Glamis Another buddies Elite car broke out a rear Bogart in 3rd gear in a bowl. It spun him around so hard he though they were going to flip. I took that rim to Bogart, and he put a new center in it. One front was cracking also. We sent pics of the rotor and dimensions to Bogart so he could make a new center. Then when the machine code was done, sent the wheel and they welded in the new center. I'd switch to Douglas lot stronger. Maybe heavier, don't know but its worth the piece of worring about when that rim is going to let go in the middle of a bowl.

    Radio or intercom noise

    I had an unplugged cable bouncing on the floor board make clicking noises. I've seen many cables broken due to putting them behind bars, then the side panel pinches the cable. If its the mic circuit it could be cutting in and out.
