Talk to Beard before getting a supercharger. Not really the best for low end if thats what your looking for.

Went to Callalantee this past weekend in Mountain City, TN.

Didnt get many pics but couple other people got pics and vids. Ill see if I can get some.

Did farily well besides popping a few u joints and twisting off a rear driveshaft. Crawled everything I tried besides the stuff it broke on. The doubler is great. Should have done it a looong time ago.

The group shot.

Here is the ledge where it broke the rear shaft and u joint. Damns near had it cleared and a rock kicked out from under the back tire and landed on the frame/driveshaft. Back tires are about 2 feet in the air in these pics.

I bet. I want to go and check it out one of these days. Some of that stuff looks gnarly.

I probably won't be making a Uwharrie run until May. Got a beach trip to save for.

Take plenty of pics.

BTW I finally dug out my 1354M. Gonna start looking for another case to make up a doubler. I might hit you up for some help once I get started.

Cool deal. All you need for the doubler part is a manual 1350. There a dime a dozen. Let me know when you start on it and need some help and I can ride over one weekend and give you a hand with it or something.

Popped the first u joint on that waterfall.

On a side not I drove 2.5 hrs there. Wheeled it. Drove 2.5 hrs back home and got around 17mpg. Not to shabby.

Expecting a package from fedex tomorrow. Woo hoo. Also ordered some more parts today. Pics tomorrow.
