Bump.

I'd suggest replacing the fusible links before you beat the snot out of the truck since they seem to get brittle as they age and will shut you down if they go. Pretty inexpensive part. I'm sure you already knew that.

There is a mod for the temp gauge to get it to read more accurately, but I'm at a loss for that info right now. Can a Scan Gauge be used on a 1994 (pre-OBD2)?

Thank you, we were just talking about this for sleeping. It was so hot.

We need to keep this on the DL, last year they were a little upset with our generator and fan. However it just moved the muggy hot air around.

Icybreeze should sponsor the race. ;<)

Big request. Does anyone have the longitude and latitude numbers for the beginning and ending of each trail at Uwharrie? I am building a database for the race of coordinates and these would be very helpful. Thank you.

I'd love to, but I can't commit the time or $$ at this point.
Yeah no worries. Just putting it out there since I am interested in doing the event have a rig that I think is built good enough to be fine but still haven't found a co-driver.

I believe the event is sold out for this year. This will require a different strategy, 36 teams versus 18 teams last year. Clogged up challenges and trail traffic. ;<)

We had to sign up as a pro team.

Del - I'd be down I think. I'd need to get some time kayaking to get some better endurance, but I think I'd be willing to give it a go. That said, sounds like it's a no go anyway.
