Thanks Makin Trax!!!

I just would like to thank Steve from Makin trax. I wenbt to his home this morning for some adjustment to some new shocks. We expected to spend maybe an hour. We spent probably 8 Hours trying differnt combinations of valving and springs to get the results we wanted. I have a bed delete and it is amazing how much it changes the weight proportioning. Besides the work part it was FUN!!! Not to mention my son standing on the front wheels looking straight down at the track!! Also steve mashing the pedal down thru the whoops gettting a little sideways almost throwing it over and popping the bead off the tire. Other than that it was just getting the thing in the air and seeing what felt good to ME!! Their are many good shock companies out their and I bet they all say they are better. However i doubt most of them would spend the time and patience to make me Happy. So Merry Christmas Steve!!!!

Thanks for yor help and I will bring you the pieces of whats left after new years HA HA

Just a small little track in his yard, but includes two small table top jumps 4 good size rollers which get your ass buckin around, small choppy whoops, some tight turns etc.. I had fun with it....love getting that thing up...no big air but will help that occur... Plus I learned a lot more about the dynamics of shocks which helps me diagnose what is needed and what it does not.

I can't wait! It is work but I really do enjoy trying new things and running hard. Thanks for letting me drive your car. I love those T-Rexs. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Be Careful!!! We had a Rhino here I was working with also. Two Cars and one floor jack. So the boys had to take turns. I kept busy but sometimes the boys would run laps while waiting for the jack. Fun stuff.

P.S. Just got the wifes living room re-model completed at Mid-Night. Long Day!!!! She wasn't cutting me any slack tonight.
