I really enjoyed it too its about 5hrs for me throught the hills of indiana and ky but don't take my word for it until it is closer to the date. That is just what I've heard from a credible source wherever it is I will be there, hopefully with a running truck and car. I hell or highwatered it last year with my dads truck and my car wasn't running but this year me and randy will be following each other instead of riding together his car will be running as well.

Well thankfuly mine runs again and moves around under its own power! I will be bringing it if i dont blow it up by then :) I plan on trailering it myself but i need to find some 15" wheels for my trailer its got 13" wheels with trailer tires on it now. I've hauled cars on it no problem but really want 15's on it, heck one time i had 8500lbs of scrap metal on it (didn't go very far). I just dont trust the 13's with something as heavy as the SC on that long of a trip. I figure if i trailer it and break something than i dont have to worry about getting back home. I also figure if one of the southern IN/Louisville guys breaks and i don't than they can get their car back home for free. I need to do a couple things to my truck too. It needs new rotors on the front and an alighnment (no biggie). Thinking about getting an Offroad downpipe for it too....

I found a 16 ft car hauler that I'm putting a winch on the front and making it were the driver side fender comes off. It has mobile home wheels on it prob going to swap that out to 5x4.25 if I can so I can use some old sc wheels

That'd be really cool. My trailer has removable sides so it should work well with an sc. I built it myself and have about 500$ in it. Its paid for itself 10 times over! Wish it was wider
(6'2x16'2) but that's the biggest I could build it with what I had to work with.

I'm going to try and trailer my 92 for the shootout this next year. Truck needs a trans rebuild when I get back. Just bought a stage 4 hitch for it I need to install when I get home.

Then I need to put the parts I ordered on my SC and get it over to Dalke.

Then the truck and the car need paint...

Hopefully I'm ready with everything by shootout time, and I have job since I'm getting out of the Air Force. I hope I'm not back over in Afghanistan as a contractor but I probably won't turn down a $120k/yr job if I get an offer.

A lot less weight on the front end, and less rotating mass. Should be worth some time in the 1/4 mile.

The trip down has some monster hills just so you guys are aware. I pulled my car last year with my dads f150 because my tranny was down and his truck had loose steering, to say the least it was less than fun. I just had the trans rebuilt in my truck but scott it sounds like you have quite a bit of work ahead of you. I would make the list a reasonable one to complete before the shootout. I thought I could pull off the impossible last year and ended up there with a car that didnt run.

I need to do a couple things to my truck myself. It needs new shocks and alighned. Yesterday while driving it in the snow i noticed my rear brakes pretty much dont work... I've got the flu and theres a foot of snow out so i will have to mess with it when it warms up a bit. Stupid GM and there rear drum brakes.....

Dates and location are not yet confirmed for 2013, but I would expect the Location to be the same as last year, and the Date will probably be a weekend in late September.

Here is a link to the Shootout website that has some info from 2012 and will be updated for 2013.

Thanks Dave.

Once again. The sooner I know the dates the easier it'll be for me to work it into my scheule. Unlike last year - the car is done this year so I should be in good shape on that end of things...

I hope to make it this year. I'm also planning on Carlisle so hopefully I'll get to meet some of you guys there.

I never install used automatics. It's too much agg removing them and used autos are a crap shoot. I always rebuild them.

The trans I bought only had 18000 miles on it and I don't know how to rebuild a 4r75w transmission. If I had a spare 1500 laying around right now I would have done just that but I've got the motor out of my sc and the trans went out of the truck at the same time so........ 900 for a trans with that low of mileage sounded like a pretty good deal but here I am with no truck since september.

I hear ya man. Thing is with automatics the clutch packs, etc. can go bad just from sitting too long. Moisture gets in the transmission and can cause havoc with lots of the wearable parts. It's a shame man. Sorry to hear. I know you could use a run of good luck too.

They are putting one in that has around 55000 on it. I still have my original trans if you would be interested in rebuilding it.

My vacation request for 2013 must be submitted by January 25.

It would be helpful if a weekend for the Shootout could be nailed down by then. Thanks.

Are we looking at Sept. 21-22 or 28-29, 2013?
