Sooo the latest news may sound a bit redundant, but once again, the BEEST got towed!

The car is out of the shop for all of 7 days, and take it further than 100 miles away, and it apparently can't handle being away from Blu808!!
We get into the middle of nowhere last night down I-5, and Josh pulls over to inspect why the car is shaking so much... well....

Some unknown melted shiny black goop is seeping out of the underside of the monster. We call Luke, and being the awesome guy that he is, he actually picks up the phone in the wee hours of the night on Thanksgiving. (THANKSSSS!)
He tries to diagnose over the phone, but either way, it doesn't look good. The car is down until further assessment. Possibly the substance is melted material from the fuel tank, or, in the words of Luke, 'it just may have been it's time', referring to the diff. :(

and now it's back at the shop as it has been for months, after a quick stint out, as Pyro anxiously awaits its release again....

so here's just a little photo post of what was seen..

Damn that sucks. It looks like tar and I hope it's from the diff and not the motor.

Yeah I think so. I can't think of anything else that would have oil/grease like that. It's not motor oil, not trans or diff oil. ...

Just did a full inspection. The diff was starting to make some noise back when he had the blower motor. Looks like it finally let go. Bad bearing melted the seals and that was what was dripping.

Time for a 9" IRS

Just stopped by Blu808 to check out my car, looks like I will be getting a new stock diff for now and will be ordering the 9" IRS as soon as I sell the supercharger or motor.

Luke was going to do my installs this coming week, which I'm really psyched for, however I'll be happy to have him delay the installs if it will help Josh get his car back faster.

wow, you're a good guy!
but hopefully that won't be necessary. I assume, seeing the way Luke is, he'll probably get you both taken care of this week and in time for the fun run this coming Sunday! we shall see though.
