  1. Up and Down Vibration at Speed

    Just for the heck of it, if it were me I would play with the air ride height settings. I would lower it a couple inches then bobtail it down the road. If vibration is still there raise it a couple of inches and run it. See if it changes anything. In all my years of working on these things, most of the time I had a vibration that would start at around 50 to 60 MPH and go away it would most likely be a wheel/tire balance issue. I like notevens suggestion to rotate the outside tires, I would try 180 deg just for the heck of it. Just make sure you can get to the inside valve stem.
  2. Nice to meet fellow HDTer's

    It was great meeting you and Chad. I was working the swing shift at the race and didn't have much time to visit. Lesson learned, if I want to socialize don't pick swing shift.

    Have a safe trip. I'll be looking out for your KW.
  4. HDT Members On The Road, Including Their Current Locations

    My back yard is the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. Will be parked in this spot for a day or 2, then will move down to the dry camp spots. Cant afford this site for the next week race. They tell me it goes for $10,000 a week. Just a little rich for my blood . I will be working here for the race so they let us camp here for a few nights. Hoping to have a good time, my job will be driving around in a golf cart making sure all the campers stay inline. Chad, are you coming down for the race, if so I will be looking for you and hope to meet and say hello.
  5. Death Valley Brewing

    Thanks DT, now I got a image of a lot of old geezers floating in a pool naked. I'm setting on the porch of the toy hauler having a bloody mary and the wife steps out and asked what I want for breakfast. I said I'm not hungry and she said I was 20 minutes ago. I told her I lost my appetite. Guess I'll have a few more bloody marys and the images may fade away.
  6. Replacing Steer Tires

    If you have a tire shop you deal with, it may be a good idea to ask them as Billr mentioned. I was looking at some Sailun tires online and told my tire shop what I could get them for and he matched the price.

    I believe I remember the guy telling me of the drag races that Biker56 posted. If I remember correctly he said it was going to be the first 4 lane drag race. I wasn't going to be in the area at that time so I didn't pay to much attention. If you want I can PM you with the contact info for the guy that recruits people for the races.

    I sent my app in to work the race. Would be great to meet up, I'll let you know what position I take and what shift. I'm thinking of taking a gate position on the infield. Will be able to camp there and they say my employee pass should get me into a lot of places. I actually thought this was a volunteer position, but they told me it paid $10 an hr so that may pay for my beer. Let me see, how much does beer cost at a Nascar race, hmmmm, I may have to ask for a raise. LOL
  10. Has anyone worked for the Las Vegas Motor Speedway? I was talking to a friend of a friend and he signs people up to work the races. I was thinking of working the week of 2/24 thru 3/4. I was wondering if anyone has worked it and at what position to get an idea of what I would like to do.
  11. Was at the Tech inspection today for the Parker 425 off road race in Parker AZ and came up on a couple rigs like this. These pictures were of one of Robby Gordons rigs and it was registered in CA.
  12. AIR LEAKS-I give up!

    Not sure if anyone has mentioned it, but have you checked the one way check valve between the compressor and the tank. If it doesn't seat you would not hear the air leaking back to the compressor.
  13. Dump station in Parker AZ

    Thanks mesa, that will help.
  14. Dump station in Parker AZ

    Will be going thru Parker AZ and want to know if anyone knows of a place to dump and fill water in Parker. Thanks Dennis
  15. Tracking Electrical Problems - a Saga

    Sounds like an adventure for sure. I'm pretty good at electrical but, I hate to work behind the dash. Never enough room and it always seems like I start at the wrong end and have to take every panel off the dash before I get to the problem. Like I tell everyone "Why is the problem at the last place you look" Chad thanks for the reminder. When I extended my frame I lost the right turn signal on the rear of my truck. Like yours the front and mid worked and I was leaving for Arizona and the trailer was find so I headed out. Well now that I'm setting in I can dig into it.
