Now I want to make the drive out to go for a ride. :)

Ride? Hell you can drive it! Invitation is open to any SJ, if you're ever near Omaha on a friday let me know and we can work out the details. Don't worry about breaking it, you'd have to be a extraordinary individual to do any worse to the old girl than I do. ;) The local track here is very good for newbies and learning with very soft, grassy consequences.

Will you ride along and call out the corners?  Is there an rFactor track for your home course?

Yes and Yes, but the version of the track isn't very accurate, no camber. I have another home track which I have made for rfactor too. Also check out High Plains raceway and Hallet. I don't have video from either yet, but they are semi-local to me. :)

Well my three year old son is ready to drive out.  He made me watch both videos in their entirety again.  :gtg:  He has big plans to put his car seat in and wear his bike racing helmet.  I don't have the heart to tell him that it just wont happen.  Luckily he can't read what I'm typing.

Well, my car has no airbags so he can ride in the front like a big boy! :D Actually he could ride along at an autocross, for the road course the minimum age is 12 w/ parental consent. I'll have to check what the nearest ones are and plan my trip to be in SLC for an autocross weekend.

I tough you had a built tranny and dfrential with straight cut gears. First time I heard someone has that noise cause of Poly mounts. I have them all in my FC and it doesn't make any sound like that.....

Indeed, it is a combination of things, That diff has an unknown (300k?) milage on it, so I'm sure it is out of spec, but the LSD still takes 90ftlbs to break! I think there is a rear wheel bearing just starting to talk to me too, but maybe it is in the diff output flange. The old girl is due for some service in the rear end honestly, I have a spare rebuilt diff, just no real reason to put it in yet. Everyone seems to enjoy the gear whine! ;)

Here's a pic to clarify how I did the numbers, it was the cheapest way to get them printed, anyone who wants them PM me and I'll send the psd. :)

Some more yeehaw this weekend! We had a evening/night time rallycross, it was a lot of fun!  :excited:

I need to make a better camera mount.
