Re: Wavetrac Rear Diff. for Jeeps?!?!?!

Chad - thanks for the update. Not what we were all hoping to hear, but it's an update nonetheless. Harrison's shocks will just have to impress us that much more at the Virginia race!

Beat me to it. Thanks for posting the update. Yeah, April. At least its good to have the manu. show up and provide an update with some details, versus "it's coming" and nothing else to show for it.

Only 4 more months George and guess what? I write this in jest. As you said though, at least the manufacturer is giving updates.

Re: Wavetrac Rear Diff. for Jeeps?!?!?!

Yeah I am not too happy about the delayed delay delays. I am pleased that they have some credible updates with progress on the horizon. It's like supercharger time. Everything takes like three times as long to bring to market as a standard item. I learned that 6 months in supercharger time really means 18-24 months. so the 90 to 120 days will likely pan out to be 150 to 180, as things are showing. like 125% of supercharger speed.

Re: Wavetrac Rear Diff. for Jeeps?!?!?!

I spoke with Dana yesterday and he said that they expect to begin assembling units this month. I am pretty optimistic about that statement. So much so that I bought 3 qts of mopar 75-140 synthetic diff fluid (stock fill is recommended) and a side pumper for fill after install. Eddie got the pump and thought it was his new Swedish peter pumper. Hopefully that break in period for the pump won't have any effects on filling the new diff.

C'mon now wasn't intended to be that bad. Here's one that Ed helped make that's a little easier to look at:
