    Have a weird issue with a Vortec 8.1. Intermittent Reduced Engine Power code. Anyone have experience with this? Done a lot of troubleshooting and I'm down to either a software issue or wiring. It only happens after shutting the engine down and letting it sit for a bit. Not a hot start issue...

    Poly, delrin, or???

    What does everyone like for bushings on are trailing arms? I've used poly the last few times and it seems to wear too fast. Is delrin too hard? Sent from the RDC Mobile App. Get it for your IOS device today

    Valving or geometry or weight or ???

    In the never ending search for the perfect ride I am still struggling with the small choppy stuff. The worst is the deep washboard (or axle wrap chatter in washes) followed closely by rocky dirt. I am assuming this is all free bleed territory. Am I missing something? Currently I have both...

    Pre-runner Buggy spring selection

    Been doing some suspension homework and it seems like selecting front springs for a buggy can be challenging. My car is 700lbs front and 2100lbs rear. That's loaded at 0mph. I know that when I am on the gas it is almost 0lbs in the front. (Especially with paddles and hookup) That makes my...

    Factory backing?

    People keep talking about the xraid minis as if they are a fully backed Factory effort. Is that true? I am under the impression that xraid is a private motor sports outfit and Mini is a sponsor. Does anyone know if BMW is actually in the pits with tech support, etc? Sent from the RDC Mobile...

    Bypass bleed question.

    I have what I think is a fundamental question that is hanging me up. 4seat, LS engine buggy. 2.5 coils, 2.5 3tube bypasses. I have the long compression tube fully open and I think I could still use some more bleed. Sharp cross ruts and small rocks are a bit harsh. Should the Valving...

    Advise on Seat Belt mounting

    I am swapping out my seats and need to reloacate the shoulder belts. (3G's to Sparco's) As you can see in the pic the previous belts were down on the cross bar and that is not right, we were using the seat frame for the seat belt support... bad news. I need to get the mount up ~8" and I am...

    More on shaft velocity

    Had a flight from Boston to Phx last week and after a few JD & Coke's I started thinking about shock valving again... I guess this is whay they call us additcted! (Not the JD part ;) To summerize, I am after the ever elusive pre-runner shock tune. Buttery soft over cross ruts and whoops at...
