    I think I have finally sorted / fixed the Ranchero after the crash. The Challenger is a Supercharged 6.1 Hemi .

    Did you take it? Or did he shut down faster?
    Hard to tell from the rear view angle.

    He took him. You can tell because the Dodge was seen in the rear camera view crossing the finish line. Hard to see a car in front via that view.

    Sound really tough, Air.

    That Hemi has a TON of torque and traction issues. I went though the front end and replaced ball joints and bushings, then added a garage alignment with a caster camber gauge and a string. Seems to have worked. Still sware the wheels are off the ground for a second.

    I never saw the Hemi.

    I think he was after it, but you would think he would pull me at the big in with much higher gears and all that motor.

    GREAT Fun when it hits the tires hard like that.

    Painful for the guy in the Challenger to see a video of himself taken from a REAR view camera..On You Tube..
    Do you know him? was there a bet on the race?

    Those floods up north were really bad we had our share here in the middle of the state where hwy 24 was washed out, Fort Collins and such, Thompson canyon got it the worst. I live uphill from where the flooding was in the Springs area. I will stay in Colorado thanks, we have snow today :D love it

    High of 80 here in So.Cal. today. No snow in the forecast here :D

    Glad you didn't get washed-away in the floods.
