Wrench-Tech II - March 17, 2012

TTORA So-Cal
presents

Wrench-Tech II




We had such a good turnout for last year's Wrench-Tech that we decided to bring it back to you in 2012! There will be new demonstrations such as Lower Ball Joint replacement, U-Joint maintenance, CB tech and more! This is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for So-Cal locals to get hands-on experience with maintenance and trail fixes for your truck. Our Staff is very knowledgeable on the topics we'll be covering throughout the day. Expect thorough explanations and bring all the questions you've been dying to ask about the demonstrated procedures.

Our sponsors, DeMello Off-Road and Icon Vehicle Dynamics, have graciously donated their facilities, time and money to ensure this is a successful event. New and current products will be showcased and they'll be more than happy to answer all your questions.

This is a great time to meet the Staff and other members you've only talked to on the forum. Drive your trail-rig to the event and show off your upgrades/modifications. If you have a stock truck and are trying to figure out what to do to first, you'll have the opportunity to ask other members what they've done.

We'll see you all there!

Where:
DeMello Off-Road
12785 Magnolia Ave. Suite 1
Riverside, CA 92503

When:
10:00am - 4:00pm

Common, people! Less than 2 weeks to go! Don't miss out on this awesome opportunity! Everyone can learn something at this event whether you're 2WD or 4WD. Or, come just to hang out and grab some free lunch.

Less than a week away! This is a great opportunity, guys. I haven't seen any other club offer it's members something like this. It's free and includes lunch! Take advantage of it! We'll also have TTORA So-Cal merchandise available!

are guys gonna have the event if it rains? I'll be there either way (I guess I won't if its called off), I've been looking forward to this and the rain will just make the recovery and trail side repairs more realistic.

Here is your schedule of events for this weekend. We decided to do it a little different this year. The first group of demonstrations will be done simultaneously, giving you the opportunity to either bounce around or stay with one!


1000-
Welcome and Introduction

1030-
ShowStop: U-Joint and Carrier Bearing Maintenance

rivethead242: Clutch and Steering Fluid Flush

sparky: CV and LBJ Replacement

1230-
Lunch

1330-
SAR_Squid79: Recovery Lecture and Demonstration

Though there is rain in the forecast for this weekend, don't let that keep you from joining us. We will be moving it all inside DEMELLO OFFROAD's shop. Come on out!

Don't forget, if any body has a CB radio that needs tuning or other adjustments done, bring it with you. I'll have my tech bench set-up at Demello's shop. I can make most basic repairs, all kinds of antenna repairs/adjustments and certain types of electronic repairs. Of course I'll be available to answer any questions about CB radios as well.
