Man if i were you i wouldn't have any down time. I'd either be drunk or skiing. Probably both at the same time.

That's cool, just remember to blow out the bearings after you run in the snow

Maybe they didn't have to pay for their car so they don't care what happens to it... some people are just a few sandwiches short a full picnic...

Hey MikeR,

Justin is correct... it was Airnate alright! I think you were goofed by the Barracuda sticker on his TC3 lid... (I think he wanted people to think that he was running a Barracuda instead... )... anyhow, here's the aftermath of that 8 feet jump (you won't see the massive ramp on the pic), after which he did a double double with only 3 tires... AMAZING!!!

long way to drive to rebuild your car... you might want to think about spending some quality time at Grumpy's after the day is done


and make sure to enjoy the view from Hangman's while your up top (nothing like a nice -45 degree shute to help you wake up in the morning)

haha, I was making fun of Nate for running that ducttape body a couple weeks ago at SoCal.

The reason for the Barracuda decals is Alex hooked him up with the body.

Default Shock questions

When filling the shock body, how far up in the body do you fill??

When inserting the assembled cartridge I see that the piston is up against the cartridge, but how far do you screw the cartridge in as shown in step 4 of the instructions before moving on to step 5
When the shaft is depressed into the body in step 5, I see that its depressed a little more than halfway and there is some bleed off at the oring before moving on th step 6.

Then it looks like you lossen the bleeder screw and depress the shaft almost to the threads..

I just want to be sure im assembling and bleeding them off correctly....My first experience with bleeder type shocks

I'm gonna try to run Saturday night if possible

Thanks loads
