I ordered three things today....

Popcorn, for those hanging out... sorry I ran out...I'll try not to let it happen again...

An upgraded output shaft and bearing for my transmission... we also have a new input shaft on order....

And the big one...

I spoke with Frank at the Driveshaft Shop... and ordered my nine inch kit.... It'll come with the WaveTrac diff, 3.07 gears, 33 spline stubs, and a one piece 3.5" driveshaft....

I'll finally be able to launch Brandi without worrying about leaving my diff on the track...

Awe, c'mon R - Leaving a diff on the track would be an Epic Moment...

Looks like you will be ready to get the power to the ground. Nice.

If someone hadn't offered to buy my old one, I might have done just that... but no... too much risk of damage to other parts if the driveshaft comes off... exhaust, fuel tank etc... and when it let loose as fast as the motor spins up... that might also create issues... So no, I'll continue to baby it and wait for the new parts...

I saw where Bowler should be about ready to send your trans back to Nelson... My fingers, legs, toes and anything else I can are crossed for you that it all goes well...I really want that car back in your hands and on the East Coast...

Oh, and Corey is oredering me a boost controller... so after the driveline is strengthened, it'll be time to boost the boost, add some nitrous and race fuel and see what she will do....
