    Ride height and the California lean

    Thank you, stumpalump. "California lean". I did not know that was a thing. I've just always thought those guys had an attention span that was shorter than the wheelbase of their trucks. Me smarter now.

    Let me say this about that. I bought a new Can Am X3 RC from the dealer in Parker, Az., and put 20 miles on it on Parker streets to start the break-in. Got to Ogilby a week later, unloaded, and drove toward the UPRR tracks (flat desert) with two other SxS's on a slower break-in continuation. At 23 miles, the right upper A-arm disconnected from the frame because there had never been a nut put on the bolt that secures it to the frame. The bolt worked it's way out, and sheared in half. The SxS was un-drivable and un-towable. From the scene, I called the dealer in Parker just to get bolt specs. No Help. Then I called the dealer in Yuma and they were even less help......"Bring it in. We'll look at it." So............then I called Coyne. Your parts guy was the only one who cared enough to pull up a diagram, locate the bolt, nut and adjacent relevant damaged parts and check his stock (had it all). He spent about a half hour helping me over the phone. First rate customer service right there. We sent a SxS back to camp. Used a floor jack to get everything aligned and an SAE bolt as a bandaid to get it together enough for a 3-5 MPH putt back to camp and went to El Centro for the correct parts. Thank you for supporting GD.com
  5. I'm really sorry I posted that picture. After the post came up, I looked at it, and regurgitated some coffee into my throat.
  6. Because Kalifornia politics be Kray Kray. I know. I'm from there. My parents were Democrats. They loved Moonbeam's dad. But I really think my dad was a voting booth Republican. He just didn't want to piss off mom.

    Wtb. WW CL4005 or CR3905

    X 2. And I'd look closer at the 17' garage model with the salvage title if I were you and don't mind the garage instead of open storage space. Says he bought it at a police auction and gutted it to rebuild it the way he wanted with what was available from WW and then used higher quality stuff. I went to the seller's FB page and he seems solid. Works for American Airlines. Pilots larger aircraft. Put a lot on FB about himself. Lots of dune pictures and info. Looks like a real enthusiast that might answer your questions honestly. Lives in Phoenix (probably the Sky Harbor Airport thing), has the trailer in Tucson. PM me. I don't know the seller, but if it's an option and I can help, I will.

    Today's Highway star

    Travco. A good friend has one. Bought it and restored it with a Route 66 interior. It's as cool as owning a diesel pusher, IMO.......maybe even cooler.

    Today's Highway star

    That's very cool. Found it on Google Maps too. Reminded me of this weird old delivery plane.

    Chinese Lanterns

    They taste like skeet......and they're easy to hit. Just pick up yore shot shells before you break camp.
  15. You were wise to spend the extra and upgrade, IMO. I believe you'll feel that it was worth it.
