  1. John as much as you race you ought to put a 9 in Ford in the back of that car but really a Dana would be more of what you want because it's heavier than a 9 in Ford and that's where you need to wait on that car

  2. Cold weather is tough on parts. Broke a carrier cap once in an 8 inch Ford rear on a chilly November day. Took all the teeth off the pinion and teeth off the ring gear in 4 places. That's racing! You'll get her back together as always. You really need to finish your other car.

  3. To be totally fair, an 8.8 (non-3rd. Member type rear gearset), can be changed at the track in a limited amount of time, but rarely can be truly housing fully cleaned spotless and setup properly, as can be seen in exactly how Lucore did Tommy's repair. They had that in and out 7 times plus hours and hours of housing cleaning. Slap one in fast like that at a track, sometimes is very necessary, but it will usually fail faster at those high Horsepower usages.

    A properly setup 9" or 8 3/4" 3rd member, as long as the bench setup is perfect, and a track swap is a whole lot easier, but cleanup is still an issue inside the housing in limited time to get all that fractured steel out. And very cold weather and any no load, jacked up warm ups, are definite a no, no. There really is no true heat cycle to anything but the oil.

  4. Didn’t the trans suffer from some sort of damage from the last gear you broke, it’d really crappy to find out after putting a gear in it and running at dig or die just to loose on a trans failure. You might want to go through those planetary gears to make sure.

  5. Devon is the one of the best person to ask about wiring issues TJ. I have enough trouble following him on his channel. πŸ€£πŸ’―πŸ’¨πŸ™πŸŽ‰πŸ€ŸπŸ€œπŸ€›πŸ‘πŸ‘β˜οΈπŸ‘‹πŸ€žπŸ”₯. Well your door doesn't like the right line. Pinion sounds like TJ.

  6. John practicing his burn down mind games. Whole new level β€œmy door fell off” little do we know he got that thing on a fast and furious ejecto seato cuz button

  7. The door was the best part!!!…πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™‚οΈπŸ€£πŸ€£. Get that hot rod fixed and back to making fast passes!!!!!…..πŸ’―πŸ’ͺ🏽❀
