So they broke 2 transmissions on 2 different cars and a rear diff case from an axle that let go? Will speed pay the transportation and travel costs for the customers who are waiting for revised parts to go back to Havasu when they arrive?

My guess is yes. I bet they go to where ever the garage is and pickup. Good video. If nothing else full transparency.

They did start (#77 on race tracker) but existed the course before they made it though the short course. They started again, but something looks to be causing issues in the car

how does an EFI motor stall? i dont get it?

I don't know, he was going around a turn then the car just started slowing down, came to a stop. He sat there for a few seconds, rolled back alittle, then started moving again at the same speed.

Not gonna make it back out, I had some stuff come up and I won't be back this year. Honestly I wouldn't be good for the other racing as the desert classes are my wheelhouse haha.
Nice work last week. 👍

He made it to mile 85 which is the first rock section Outer Limits. Hes been sitting there for hours with no movement, hes broken obviously. (Any movement was a replay)


View attachment 1197738 .
They showed him running in the desert for a good 2-3 minutes.
Car was moving and was eating up the course and the suspension looked solid for the desert lap.

When Bryce pulled in the pit we were looking the car over and noticed a front axle boot came off so we were going to change it out when I noticed the front shock shaft was bent. The only spare was on a car at camp so Bryce decided to not continue on a bent shaft plus being down on time if they were to swap out. He lost the oil in the shock around 15 miles in so he still pushed hard (this is what caused the shaft to bend) when he came into main he was in second physical and first on corrected. Short day but onto the next one

I met with the guy and his team that owns the Ultra 4 series today, they came by my shop while touring some spots in Havasu.

They are talking about putting on a large scale event here in Havasu in late fall early winter. If they do half of what they are talking about it is going to be the largest scale event Havasu has ever seen.
