    Does anyone have any information as to when these are going to be this year? I forgot how to spell the name of the organization holding them. I plan on attending this year and competing but I need a date and some information. Thanks guys/gals. :cool:

    Looks like I might be missing this one then.. I guess I'll have to wait till next month. :rolleyes: Unless it's nice and sunny tomorrow and I can weld in mounts for my seat belts.

    Wimps that need to pass a safety inspection. :p: I still have a few miner things to work out, like shocks and paint (getting rid of the khaki and tiger stripes to avoid being noticed so much by the police) I'll be at the next one, hopefully by then I'll also have my 5.13's installed instead of the 3.73's I'm rolling with now.

    You wouldn't by chance know how to install a set of gears in a D60 and a 14 bolt would ya??? :deal: I really need some help/tools.

    That is one thing I havent done yet. Every thing else no problem. With the right tools it shouldn't be too hard. What can go wrong?

    I have been to a couple other events in the area (mostly local car shows... bling bling :rolleyes: ) I'm trying like h*ll to get everything together for the August 28th climb. I haven't found anyone with gear install knowledge and I'm lacking a few tools, along with the courage to set up almost $800 worth of ring and pinion myself. :doah: ( I'm also too poor to pay someone professionally to do it) If I can get the day off I'll be there, even if it's with 3.73 gears.

    I'll be missing this one also... have to work an open to close shift at my store. I was at the last one in the modified class (I did ok considering I am STILL using 3.73's) next year I'll try again. See you in '06!
