Ok - I thought he was headed out for the big meet out in Moab last week. Looking through the hundreds of pics coming back from that meet, and not one sign of Larry, or any Speedway blue Taco for that matter.

Anxiously awaiting to hear about his adventures. I'm wondering if he's using the crawl box for the ride out there maybe?

He destroyed his drive shaft the first day he was out there.

Aw crap! Please tell me he did it at the end of the day and at least got some fun in beforehand?

Or better yet, he had a spare driveshaft and was up and going in no time.....

Well between Larry and a guy named Dennis they had one spare (Dennis borrowed it from a dude named John) but both Dennis and Larry destroyed their drive shafts. And all this carnage happened the first day they were out there.


^^^ Dennis's drive shaft.

vvv Larry's drive shaft.



Quote :

Larry has no spare. Had to tow and winch him out of some bad poop. Not
fun at all. At one point we had two snatch blocks hooked up to his
winch and me pulling with mine. More than likely we will be going to
Grand Junction, CO to get a new one built for him.

That would make for a long first day.

Just go to driveshaft store that specializes in offroad shafts and have them build you a front shaft that has a very long slip in it so you can use it as a spare front or rear and if you ever swap in a solid axle you can use it there too.
