nice job orginizing this guys :kewl:
way fun to see everyone.....even you Eric oh and you to Tim :rolleyes:
Show and shine winner was definately the red truck....I though we posted no mall runners? anyhow no one can give me shit about spotting after Ron spotted Shelly right of the ramp! Wish I had a camera for Rons face untill he realized the truck wasn't scatch.
Didn't want to disappiont all the ramp queens but Shane ramped before you guys got there and ramped an 762 - he didn't want to make u guys feel bad so I figured I would :p
Carlos props for suppling the place, ramp sodas etc.... way cool!!

Hey... I already wrinkled the fenders... you saw them at the Con. It not like I have not damaged it already. Im sure the dent will come sooner or later. And then its all down hill from there.

But really.... We had a great time at the meet and greet. I think it was very positive step in the right direction for the club.

Shelly and I were talking about doing a meet and greet at our house. And getting a permit to block off the street (block party) type of thing. Then we can park the trucks where ever we want, and use the RTI ram ect ect. IF we do it during the summer we can swim, bbq, and what not.

Good times. Thanks everyone who took the time and effort and cash to put this together. Do you/we need to contribute some dough to cover the cost? Let us know.
Glad to see and put some faces to names. We got some good looking better halves in this club that is for sure!

I was hoping to get a higher RTI than T-boob but I didn't build it to run up a ramp.

Ok, so this is the first time I've ever ramped my truck, and yes, a 316 sucks. I think it's because I slipped back a little when pushing in the clutch... but anyways-

Nope and I ran my driver side up that ramp, it's cranked higher than passenger to level out the "toyota" lean. So I think if I had done it on the Pass side it would have ramped better.

Has to do with weight distribution also. My numbers were completely different going forward as apposed to backwards. Mine got better. Looking at your score Eric yours was worse.

The front of my truck will far out flex the rear the way it's set up. I can get a bit more flex out of it the rear if I shave some more off the frame were it limits the chevy's, but it does just fine as it is on the trail, so I'll leave it alone.

Weight distribution should have helped Ryan with the added weight of the shell and the gear he carries (like it helped T-brew).............maybe it's time for some softer rear springs??? ;)

I have Tundra valving in my Camburg coilovers. The valving won't limit your flex when going slow, the piston will still flow through the shock oil.
