VOODOO buggy upgrades

Well, I entered LCQ for KOH I thought I would have a shot being able to drive Backdoor. Now I heard backdoor won't be in LCQ

Anyway, I'm signed up and going for it. We'll see what happens.

I got the turbo rebuilt and running good-after I modified the distributer

My cage has been well used, and built off a stock Sammy B-piller. So all new tube got installed from the dash back. The dash forward was rebuilt after a hard roll at donner a couple years ago.

A buddy (who knows how to go fast) came up and helped me revalve/setup my shocks. WAAAAAY better. They're still 2.0 air shocks, but workin' pretty good for what they are.

Still need trans tunnel, rear firewall, skins, tail lights, catch cans, blah, blah, blah.....

This is why I haven't made any trail runs lately. Rebuild for KOH started the day after the Club Challenge.

Thanks for the props
I'm hoping to make the "Big Show" but if I don't, oh well. My rig should be dailed for the 2012 TRG wheein' season.

I'd love some coilovers, air bumps and bypasses......but I got air shocks, so that's what I'm runnin' My junk ain't fast enough fo that other stuff anyway

Well, She's RaceReady I took it out for the final shake down sunday. it's working great.....until I lost a power steering pump My spare pump is in, took it back out and all seems good anyone got another spare stock pump?

I think I got some junk in the pump from the new res. I may not have cleaned it out good enough Does anyone have any input on an in-line power steering filter that won't be too much of a restriction?

Full tank, tools, parts, 500lbs of driver/ co-driver, It sits with 8" up & 8" down travel with a 19" belly and 72.5" to the top of the cage. I'm curious how much it weighs I'm hoping it's under 3000lbs- as it sits -with nobody in it. I'm not sure it's still that light?

I'll try to get some pics up tomarrow.

last time I revamped my steering system I added an inline filter on the return before it goes back to the reservoir. I used a simple / cheap remote engine oil filter from summit. uses standard engine oil filters. have been changing once a year a seems to work great.

good luck on the race.

Thanks everybody. I'm headed down Fri. morning.
I've been busy. I did in three months what would have normally taken me five years. I work better under pressure.

Thanks Sierra Valley, I'll probably hit you up for some tabs or bracket to mount the IRC tracker WHEN I qualify

Time to update for KOH '13 upgrades. Broke a D44 axle this year so...


Ive also broke a few 'Yota R&P's , so JANA 76's should fix that. Basically Dana 70 gears and carrier in a smaller Dana 60 housing. D70 on the left, Yota on the right, and D60 just for comparison in the middle.


It's a tight fit

Wouldn't want that housing to bend


Never broke a stock Toy shaft so I think these 35 spline Mosers should hold up


New "Batwing"


Ballistic joints - rebuildable with forged cromo bodys- on both rear links.. next to a 3/4" hiem

Thats the Idea. My formula is ...Over build it+ under power it+ keep it light= reliability

When I eventually build a new motor, I'll turn up the boost a bit more and maybe break the #200 hp mark
