Just thinking aloud....

offsetting both diffs?

isn't the 9" pattern reversible, too, so there is no right or left drop, just an offset (ignoring drain and fill holes I guess)

thats what im forgetting, if the pattern is flippable, ill have to look into that.

big choice is going to be spendy light 9's or do 14's   i have to do some reading on both, but one will happen.



ya i was thinking pass diffs but after Ryans comment nothing says i couldnt flip the other 60 i have, weld on solid C's corrected and run it.  new car will stay 4.10s in 1:2    70-80mph is plenty fast in the rocks  :)

The TrueHi9 is one I always thought looked damn good. Prices are rough though as expected.

I would never ever run a hi-9. ever.

debatable reliability issues and SHIT support issues.

With some shock tuning and good steering I don't think it would be too used up and would be a top contender. You can really drive these days, no doubt about it.

So am I fired? :)

571 might do the last RCrocs race with the motor as is.  im not going to put another one in it right now.

you are fired for 572.  :'(

plan to start bending tube in 2 weeks or so.   Time to build the car i should have built, the way i should have built it.

IDK, its all about the Benjamins.  ;D

Rausch style racing, would the 14b hold up better than the fabricated housings?

if i was going to run 9's id run the kind you find in junk yards, and have 2 spares.  if it really was an issue, id get rid of them.


my thought with running the 14's the wrong- it way would be as strong if not stronger than a 60

unsprung weight is the biggest performance killer in high speed and in "rock bouncing" 


going 9's would be a huge weight benefit taking a ton off the car

Fancy hubs can save almost as much as the housing, but seems silly to put bling hubs on a junkyard lump.

Just out of curiosity, anyone running rcv's in ultra4? Glanced at my "rock bouncing" calender on the wall... 99% of those guys have em. Carrying entire spares (if you managed to break one) would obviously be next to impossible though.

another 5.3, and a BUILT th400 will be my flavor in the new car.


i dont need any more power than i have now, ill keep my yukon super shafts and make them stronger with a lighter car.
