finally getting hang of Sony Vegas... tomo before i head back to CA going to try and post up the video i did of day 2 lap 1, it has PIP and it flips back and forth and speeds up and slows down. Goal will be to make a single lap clip for each lap and get posted. Probably take couple weeks unless I get a computer to do it on in CA. My web guy is making a video of the best footage. Working on converting the video camera footage so I can upload on the web. This video that I posted is the only one that waves like that, HDRA camera guy said it was the r5 setting.

Time for some race truck updates. The parts I sent out are on their way back and should all be back here at home by end of this week. Autometer fixed the tach, and sent a new trans temp gauge, Juan reflashed the computer with a higher more involved tune for more horsepower using higher octane. Should pull in 3rd now with no cutting out. Will fine tune it during our test session next month. PCI sent back my Icom with my GoPro 2 cable upgrade so next videos will have audio thanks to my gf buying me a gopro2 for bday. Going to pick up all my new Eibach coils at end of week as long as trans parts don’t run me to much.

Some Pictures
impact, fire extinguisher, triangle, and safety mount








KFC pinion skid




Some race damage, bedside mounts. You can see welds are still there, the non full plate tabs broke






The trans, planetary shot, couple drums have grooves in them.





This is for those people that said you cant use bondo, because it will crack from the stress. Well all that abuse, not one tiny spider crack. It is all in the prep work and the methods used.



Jack and breaker bar mounts, everything is solid and dismounts easily








Our spares fit tight, check out the ware on every tube



Does this front shaft look right, as far as the little nipple/cone on the end? Is it suppose to be longer to go into the rear input shaft more?


----------

The trailer is getting lots of upgrades, first is a box in the floor that holds the winch battery and all the stuff for tieing down the truck and towing it. The new winch is fixed mounted instead of on a receiver (we got a second winch 6,000lbs bigger to put on receiver to winch a broken truck). The one on trailer is strictly for taking it on the trailer when it rolls. We use bedliner on the wood to protect it a little more. Put some lights for loading it on. Future upgrades two smaller boxes in the back for parts, tire rack up front, fuel can holders up front, and we got plates built to tie in fenders to extensions. Mounting our solar panel on tire rack so our battery is always charged.






Divider is for the battery






flooring

New winch, well both are new. Broke the 3000 at prim got a new one with warranty and its much nicer cause they switched brands


Solar power 

New winch that came with a all the cables and a fixed and remote switch

So since the race we have been doing other stuff besides screwing with the trans. Once the new trans goes in it will me much stronger. Once we find another c4 that transmission I will have much more faith in. We are still looking for another motor to build as well. For now goal is to get this trans back together again and hope it lasts longer than 500 ft. I am excited to see how much power we have in the dirt, JuanCo’s tune definitely gave us some power. Anyway here is the other things we have been doing.

Disassembly






Seems impact not strong enough, I think we

Steering ram installation







New coils and boots






Spare third member



New fuel gauge

Ok I made three videos using the 3 go pros I have on my truck. One on the front (lasted entire 2.5 laps), one on the rear (lasted 45 min of lap 1), and a go pro 2 in car behind drivers with intercom set up. You can see my co pilot shift and hear our communication. However the cable bounced out after 8 min thats why I cut the audio off later on.

This first video did not fully render due to lap top charger falling out during night. It is 3mbps and goes to just after 9 min. I suggest watching this one then jumping to the 9 min spot on video two (the complete first video but render at 512 kbps so looks poor). I plan to redo this video after I complete the third video rendering.

So first two videos are same. The third video I just completed rendering its the second half of lap 1 and I render it with 5 mbps at 720 25fps so should be best looking. The final video which is lap 2 and rest of 3 will be up tomorrow.

I also have several other videos in my youtube channel. Some point and shoots from remote pit two as well as footage from tech and RAS and testing. Hope you enjoy. Remember just an amatuer first time I added video in the back ground.

first half of lap 1
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Y1v7...ature=youtu.be

second half of lap 1

the rear camera ended 5 min before looney passes me. So all that time you see him behind me, he was there for an additional 5 min from when rear camera ends to where we get to that soft area. He dealt with a lot of dust.

lap two remote pit

enjoy

time for carnage

Redline At Stateline, trans filter mix up burned up, planetary gears ground off


After Redline, motor gets new tune, get new gaskets/clutches/steels and a used forward drum, planetary gear, and input shaft.
soon as take it on street pump gasket tore due to stripped bolts in case and drum broke.


the new solid drum by dynamic next to stock... DONT BUY FROM MIKES TRANS they are theif and sent a chipped up product and cost 100 more then the dyanmic one. still have not got refund


6 alto reds in a 5 clutch forward drum


Imperial 250, heli coiled all case bolts, put all new bushings and upgraded to the c6 babit, all new sealing kit, alto reds in the forward drum with an upgraded solid drum and a 6 clutch kit, direct drum got borg warner gears and 5 clutch kit, all new thrust washers. Only thing we didnt get to use was the vasco 300m shaft i order because i was sent two 24 spline drums when i wanted 26 spline. So i used the stock one i bought before along with the planetary.




another damage was the driver rear rim on lap 1, not sure how long i rode on the flat, but probably through most of gypsum. rim broke like a mile from start finish









going to put moogs in and get new adjusters and weld them in
