I think they're leaving tomorrow? That'd mean he should be there Friday lol
There was no message on my phone system? *shrug* Nathan and Allen were both here while I was on vacation. Give us a call. 717-806-5561
Well folks another one is in the books. As we reflect on having this one in the rear view mirror, I wanted to say thanks to all that came out. I sure had a great week with you all.
And I wanted to give a HUGE shout out to Mike and Amanda for really putting together an outstanding rally. I got billing as co-host, but make no mistake, Mike and Amanda did more than the lions share of the work. I really thought they did a great job and gave us all some amazing lifetime memories.
Here is a slide show I threw together to capture some of the highlights. Looking forward to next year!
Ok first sorry to Alex cause it looks like I totally cut him off (we call it the Jersey Slide)
And the little video of his truck going home with the trailer made me grin. These pigs aren't for the faint of heart haha

Poor Alex. I couldn't help but laugh at your triple clip of the "moment of carnage"
Anyone got pics of some of the time slips from y’all running?
I was 40. @nomufflers was 41 and @tjsea 42
Notice I won all my races.
Big red runs pretty good! What kind of elevation were y’all at? I’m at ~1500ft and I ran 11.0 @64 mph in the shop truck but I bet y’all were higher up than me. Any issues with axle wrap when you took off?
Edit: here’s my best time slip from when I last ran
Lots of wheel hop issues. Quickest ET was @tjsea . He was in the 10’s but in 4wd so much better traction while it lasted.
It’s about 1300 feet there. Traction/wheel hop and rowing gears were the main hindrance. Oh and the truck bed full of firewood. Yeah that probably didn’t help my time slips either.
That’s surprising you had issues with wheel hop even with the weight in the bed. Why didn’t you use 4wd? Didn’t like the look of the tc carnage
You got any plans for traction bars for big red? I need to put some together for the shop truck bad, wouldn’t mind having a design to copy
I’m really glad I didn’t go for a 4wd pull. I’m nervous enough about the health of my tcase. After seeing the insides of one, that’s got to be the dumbest thing I’ve seen. Better go to low range if you are going to pull on anything hard.
Honestly no I’m not planning traction bars. This will probably be the only time she goes down a race track. I’ve only had it wheel hop bad on me one other time. I’m pretty sure the ass end was totally off the ground that time. I don’t know how I didn’t break something that time.
It runs pretty good though. There was probably better than a half ton of firewood in the back. The D60 in the front is heavier. I don’t remember what your shop truck is but I was probably heavier than it was.
You’re definitely making more power to run that at your weight, the shop truck is an obs ex cab 2wd zf5, but the only run I’ve made on it was with a severe boost leak, that’s fixed and it’s got a lot more fuel and better tune up now, hoping for low 16s in the quarter and break into the 9s in the eighth
my contraption was rolling down at a solid 8,500 lbs. i didn't bother to even empty it out.
I was wondering how long it would take for the firewood to be brought up
In all seriousness, it was a lot of tree he had back there.
Yeah I mean I had to do the triple view in the vid right? I just HAD to!
