Dead on the Road!

Gents,

Im a member of the dead LP club! Left me on the side of the road. Good thing MADHAT was just up the road and put the old girl on his trailer then to the house. Im going with the Raptor 150 so hopefully no more issues in the future.

How is everything going in Ga?

Kevin

Man, Im here and thats about all I can say. I live 30 miles from anything, my own fault, but were living. Im about to leave town for 6-9 months and other than that, just trying to keep my head above water. How is everyone doing? I saw y'all were trying to get a dyno day together again. Make some vids if you do. I can feel my tranny giving up the ghost as well, its going to be an expensive year. Once I get that done, the rest will fall in place (sticks, turbo, who knows) depends on what I can afford. Anhow, keep it going out there. No telling where I will end up next and if you guys are close Ill be coming to visit.

I told him I could help him out with that tranny problem by letting him use my smarty for a day... that'll fix it!
His dang truck was almost too big for my poor little trailer.

Len,

I did get it on. Put the boost fooler on at the same time. Wish I would have had it when I was towing cross country with 13k worth of trailer. She runs good, no complaints. How is Ga? You looking at getting another boat?

Kevin,,

The best thing, and I mean the best thing to start with first is an upgraded tranny. It makes even a stock truck feel like a beeeest.... The weather is getting nice and warm in Ga,, finally... How about in Az..

See ya,, Len

Len,
Kevin is 'busy' right now, and probably will be for the next 7 months or so.

However, we have already discussed this, and I will be letting him 'borrow' my smarty to 'fix' that stock tranny of his when he gets back... gotta have a reason for a full billet...

Don't worry, I'm taking good care of him!!!!

Im back. Ive got the Extreme RKL puff installed right now and I gotta try real hard to slip the tranny. I pulled the access cover and it looks like stock converter, but it aint letting go.
