  1. If you put in for the same species for 5 years in a row you get an additional bonus point(forever as long as you put in for the draw for that species every year). If you take the AZFG hunters safety course you get a lifetime bonus point for all species. With these two points you can draw an elk archery tag every year for some good units or a rifle tag every 5 or 6 years. If you want to hunt bull elk with a rifle early season on the strip you'll be waiting many many years. I'm 51 and don't want to wait til I am 80 to draw a trophy tag so I hunt archery in a unit that has the best odds and the most elk. I'd rather hunt every year than hunt a trophy unit once in my lifetime.
  2. I drew an AZ unit 6a early archery bull elk tag for this year. This is my 3rd AZ elk tag in row. I also was drawn for a WY general any sex elk tag and will be hunting just north of the CO/WY border the first two weeks of Sept. If unsuccessful during archery I can return during the Oct firearms season for no additional fee. I am still waiting to see if I draw my CO 2nd season rifle bull hunt. If you really want to draw tags invest $149 a year for Gohunt.com and use the analytic tools to find the unit/hunt with your best odds. To have a good chance of hunting every year it helps to put in for multiple states.
  3. Would it be possible to incorporate a collapsible steering shaft similar to what the stock car/sprint car guys run? https://www.speedwaymotors.com/Sweet-Mfg-405-10325-Collapsible-Steering-Column-32-42-Inch,6843.html?sku=91032302&utm_medium=CSEGoogle&utm_source=CSE&utm_campaign=CSEGOOGLE&gclid=Cj0KCQiApvbhBRDXARIsALnNoK3RruGmjiidtghKu6qRnZMhglT8nFonmj3FsILUVp03LLcM7epmyZMaArS5EALw_wcB
  4. Was the advertised price $18,999 and the out the door $23,700? If so that seems like a lot of add on fees .

    Kevin McMullen used it on Conner McMullens new Alumacraft 10 car. I saw it before the first race and after he won his class in the Vegas to Reno race and it still looked great. Any place that was damaged they just touched up with a spray can of the stuff. Pretty amazing paint if it can hold up to Baja.
  6. Congratulations! Getting an elk with an OTC tag in CO is a big accomplishment! I got tag soup for CO and AZ archery this year. I am sure I won't draw this you so will likely be trying my first CO OTC hunt. I could use some pointers on CO OTC if you care to share some intel. If you want to put in for AZ I can offer some advice.
  7. If you're looking for a way to heat your trailer you might consider using a 5kw diesel heater. Until recently there were only a couple companies that manufactured them and they were $750 and up. Now you can get the Chinese version for $120-170 on Ebay, Aliexpress or Amazon. They are super simple and quite efficient. I am putting one in a Pelican style case and running the output hose into the annex of my roof top tent. The one I ordered should heat my tent and annex for 1/2 a gallon of diesel or kerosene a night (running it on high). I have a propane Buddy heater that does a good job of heating the space but produces too much moisture and won't operate reliably over 7,000 ft.
  8. This is the only mod I've made to the engine on my XP900 and I'm closing in on 7k miles.
  9. Is Revolution still in business? I had a set on an AG and didn't care for the handling of the car. Can't say it was all the fault of the shocks but I wan not impressed.
  10. You'd need a laptop, cable, tuning software and possibly a software license, a wide band sensor or two and some experience tuning forced induction combos. As someone who has built and tuned my own turbo street cars and a drag car I'd suggest leaving it to a tuner with experience tuning sand rails. Unless of course you like the idea of spending a season at the dunes trying to get your tune right. Without a dyno you'll need to have someone drive while you monitor, datalog and make changes. If you're like most people learning a new skill you'll make a few mistakes, pop a few headgaskets and most likely destroy a few engines as you learn. You are going to pay $ either way.
  11. If you can find the part numbers for the bearings and race I'm sure they can get them for you. Timken manufactures bearings in China and India now.
  12. A few years ago a friend got the bearings and seals from this company: https://www.tritecmotorsports.com/products/bearings Don't have a contact person but a quick phone call could confirm if they still carry them.
  13. I purchased the press in grease seal on Ebay: NEW NATIONAL 417360 SHAFT GREASE 5.500 X 6.625 X 0.562 IN OIL-SEAL B484475
  14. I made a post about this a few years ago. I bought a set for my Tatum 934 hubs from a Alibaba seller that gets them from the Timken factory in China. IIRC they were about $205 for both sides. They came straight from China in Timken boxes and were laser etched "made in the USA". One of my friends bought a set a couple years ago and has had no problems with them. Here is the contact info for "Jerry" Nantong Shuangfeng bearing co. Ltd ADD:NO.36-8 Renmin Mid Road,Nantong City,Jiangsu Province,China Tel: +86-0513-80115986 Phone:+86-13063593920 FAX:+86-0513-80115986 E-mail:ntsfbearing@163.com
  15. Every time someone cuts up a Sand Limo an angel loses its mullett. Great work Alex. Makes me want to move the boxes off of my car and bring it to Tucson for some upgrades.
