Mobile (600') is about 30 min, Gulf Port (1/4) is about 1 hour, Leaksville (1/8) is about 1 hour, Hattiesburg (1/8 or 1/4, varies) is a little over 1.5 hours, and Atmore (1/8) is almost 2 hours away. All of these times are towing the car, driving would be a little faster.

Damage report!

Pretty much everything: broken cross shaft, all 4 spider gears, carrier main cap, diff housing(where cross shaft came out), and stripped ring gear.

We did some of the damage by rocking the car to get it unlocked so we could get it on the trailer.

If I had to GUESS, I would say it started out with the cross pin bending and caused a chain reaction from there.

I will be starting with a whole new housing for the rebuild. I don't trust the one in there due to the main cap breaking and the bolts being bent.

Sorry to hear that, man.  Are you going to give up the spray because it packs such a killer mean-assed punch so damn quickly?

Hell no! I'm going to build a rear packed with 35 spline axles and a spool, and a new rear suspension to go with it.

How much are you spraying?  I hope that your future upgrades keep you together and safe.

125 Hp, I limited the spray so I wouldn't break anything. That worked out real well.

The upgrades were coming anyway, I just hoped this one would stay together until then. Oh well.

That track in particular is just outside Mobile, AL.

Figured it was Mobile after seeing that '600ft. comment.............I run at Emerald Coast as does David Claflin, lot of bracket racers run Mobile on EC's off nights or "special event" nights..............used to run Atmore back in the day, may not be around much longer since the Indian tribe supposedly bought it Dissapointed

Quick update, sorta.

I am still getting money and plans together for just how i want to do the rear end  and suspension, but I've got some other things that needed to be done while the car is down.

Until today, the trunk of my car has looked rough. It was just a fuel cell, battery, and a bottle. I got some carpet and panels from a JY car and built a support panel out of 1/4" plywood. I wanted to use the least amount of wood possible, so I cut it to the exact size of the spare tire well. To keep it secure, I riveted 4 angle brackets to the side of the well and used threaded inserts in them so I could bolt down the panel. I also repainted my bottle brackets and battery tray to match.

On a non drama note. Some of the parts for my car have started showing up.

All from Moser: 35 spline spool and axles, eliminators, install kit, and rear cover.

New (to me, but low mileage) 8.8 housing at the chassis shop getting straightened and welded.

New gears (FR, 4.10s) were out of stock (didn't tell us at time of order). Going to find out when to expect them tomorrow. If the wait is too long, I will pay the difference to get another brand.

Also found out they held shipment of my line lock and hardware until the gears are shipped. That irritated me a little, but its hot as Hell out there (today was 98* with like a 112* heat index) and I really don't want to be in it.

I will make my final decision on suspension in the next few days. I have it narrowed down to a few.

There are a few places that will do this.  Hold your order until they have all the parts to send.  Bummer.

Today's lesson: Just buy the damn thing!

Since I am doing some brake upgrades to the car, I decided a adjustable proportion valve was a good idea (especially considering I already had one). As most of you know, you have to disable the factory valve to do so. To do so, you will need a new plug for the factory block that doesn't have the little rubber plug on it. So I find a place that has one in stock, almost $30 with shipping. So I decide to just plug the factory one. So I open my box and find a 1/8 plug and tap, I'm going to do this for free. Dissapointed After fighting with that little bitch for an hour, I would have gladly paid twice that amount to have one. I eventually succeeded , but not without relearning a good lesson: Just buy the damn thing!


On top of that, my gears and line loc stuff still hasn't arrived. After the last trouble with the shipment, we changed the order to get the parts on the way. The parts were supposed to be here at the end of last week.  Well that came and passed with no parts, so we try to contact the supplier several times with no luck. We finally got a hold to somebody today. They check their computer, but can't even find a record of the order . So, we reorder the parts again, supposed to be here next week.

Some good news for a change. The rest of my junk came in. I'm going to try to get the line loc,  proportioning valve, and SN95 front brakes installed this week. The rear end should also be ready to install by the end of the week. I still need to order new wheels and control arms, but thats still a couple weeks away.
