2010 Season, stay tuned...

First lesson learned this year.

Can't leave the truck in drive when sled pullin anymore. It shifts to 3rd now, and KILLS my track speed... At least it did on this track.

Second lesson learned, ducktape is an acceptable substitute for "u-joint shields" if yours are still bein built.

Third lesson learned, don't assume that just because you think you remember puttin your pullin hitch in the toolbox, that it's still there






I'll keep updatin this thread, unless disaster strikes I should get 10-15 hooks this year. Not sure how my schedule at work is later this summer, or I could probably manage to get more.
