Have you ever seen 2 1/2 ton axles? They've all got brakes on them.

Never seen one on a axle like that though

So we won 1st place at the TS outlaw race. We were the least broken in our field. LOL Alomost hit the wall when we blew out a freeze plug on our very first test runs Wed. night. Decided right then and there screw the cooling system, its not needed on a 1/4 mile race truck. So after the TS race I realized she needs a diet, so we cut out the entire cooling system, radiator, hoses, bottles, etc. ALso removed the right passenger seat, belts and mounts, all the carpet, and removed one battery, and one nitrous bottle and moved the other bottle next to the battery.

Nice Trailer! Good to see it running again! You are fast at getting it back in working condition! Wish I could pull that off.

Where is the aftermath picture of a blown freeze plug? I guess you cant drive it around town now with no cooling system?
