I finished the shifter console, carrier bearing mounts, rear driveline resized,
rear disc. hubs redrilled to 6 lug..

I might actually have time to do my LSD swap...:banana:
Gotta finish my bumper welding/winch wiring....so much to do before the WCSS...

I think it's kinda funny ...I purchased my hatch one week before last years show...it wasn't even driveable...

I just did the LSD swap in the Beast, its not real hard, just unbolt one thing and bolt another together, could be done in under an hour... I got mine back in the car in 30 minutes... Anti-sieze is a wonderful thing :banana:

Your hatch is REALLY going to go places G! what was that trail called, firebreak, or something like that? I'm thinking, clean with style on your next run. . .

I'll let him chime in with the details.
But I think it was a toasted automatic.
He had to put the FWD fuse in to even get it to move.

Far as I know that car has already been crushed as of last monday.
(we did the mad dash to strip out what we wanted that weekend. I got the seats! :banana: )
