A local friend dean bulloch raced VTR and i am wondering if anyone knows the results
With respect, there was a pretty high failure rate and the cars looked extremely well-built; was there any kind of a common thread to the failures?the winning 4400 car finished 67th overall, and completed all the miles.
after having a fuel issue that took us out, we finished 5th and 109th overall.
we had overheating issues the first half of day 1, swapped to a different rad cap at the driver change, never had heat issues again, and finished first on day 1, ahead of the lead jeepspeed.
Yeah I guess the unsprung weight is the big killer for those guys! Damn dana 60's!You do not sound like an ass, you sound like a guy that has not spent any time looking at the crawlers. The biggest reason their speeds are limited is because of the weight of the drive train . its hard to get a vehicle to ride smooth when the body and frame are along for the ride . imagine a flea being the driver on the ass end of bull dog. . with 1000 lb front and rear ends the rigg follows every bump and well you get the point
Negative on Shannon Cambpell.Did Shannon Campbell race in this class?
I'm not trying to sound like an ass, but you guys should be killing the Jeep Speeds? A full tube chassis rig with unlimited suspension, by-passes, coil overs, 37" tires and more horsepower??
all the failures I saw or changed out were the externals like the e2000. But the discussion was certainly pointing toward dual aeromotives.you aren't by any chance trying to use those fancy-shmancy aeromotive/barry grant fuel pumps are you?
We use the Holley Reds as well. The Holley Blue is the equivalent for high pressure/fuel injected cars. We have even ran a Holley Blue on a carbed car with the proper fuel pressure regulator.those aeromotives will not live in a desert environment. dual aeromotives caused us to DNF at the Baja 500 a couple years back. they are drag racing pumps and were never designed to be run for days on end. i can't comment on a good high pressure replacement pump but when we switched from the aeromotives to holley reds on our carbed truck we never had another fuel delivery problem.
sorry i can't be more help on the high pressure stuff but from my experience i would definitely say ditch the drag pumps
