Went to the track on Saturday
 
Got up real early and drove from Detroit to Cleveland for a day at the track. I have never driven my Jeep in this configuration that far before, but it was great! Cruised the Ohio turnpike at 85!:eek:

The track was cold and the weather was gloomy all day. Most everyone where having problems hooking. I had my share of computer problems :mad: The Jeep tore up the streets, but at the track kept going into limp mode every time it shifted into 3rd.

Then to top it off, as I was recording John Force driving my Jeep (JK) the sound kicks off :confused: As you can see in the video when the rail went by, it was so fricken loud the sound stopped recording! Damn!!

Wayyyy cool burnout!! Were the spectators surprised to see a Jeep do that?

That does suck about the sound! LOL...

^^ Yea. Every time the Jeep went to the line people were running up there to look. LOL I had the transfer case motor removed because there was a failed part in the Tcase so it was only running 2wd. I was hoping that with the 345 drag radials would hook better.

I can imagine!! You just have too many horses under that hood for those 345's to do anything...

Are you having that T-Case motor replaced, or the failed part I mean?

Builder Bill is working on a solution. My Jeep has wiped out 3 transfer cases so far. It's a OEM part that is failing. Actuator motor is working just fine. To fine in fact. It is mangling the parts inside that put pressure on the clutches

You need a pair of slicks!! That would be cool as hell. I wanna see both front tires come off the ground!!

slicks and coil-overs........so you can adjust the rate of squat

He's got the coilovers on the rear I believe. That would be sweet seeing the front end at 2 o'clock!
