SUNDAY SUNDAY SUNDAY Jeep Races at Southwick Mass.
« on: September 10, 2013, 07:09:13 PM »
I went out in the woods and the old Number 7 Race Jeep Fired right up after sitting for 18 months(after a battery charge)and wants to race again!

Rumor has it that this will be the last year we will be able to race at Southwick.  Turn out has been low and the track lost the Nationals for the bikes.

For those of you not familiar. We race Jeeps on a motorcycle motocross track in Southwick Massachusetts.  What a hoot!   I race the number 7 Black and White CJ-7 in the Modified class,    Here is a link to the Highlight Reel on YouTube to get an idea of what we do.

The current collection of parts making the number 7 is:

79 body

79 304 with a RV cam and a 450 CFM Holly Truck Avenger

83 wide track axles both open 2.89 gears (can pretty much run the whole track in 2nd gear low range)

79 T-150 3 speed

Dana 20

8 point to the frame Cage

Fuel Cell, Poly racing seats, Cutoff switches

The front springs are 4 full length mains with 2 add a leaves on the bottom(yea it rides hard but I still need bump stops off a semi to stop the front shocks from bottoming out.

The rear springs are stock with one add a leaf( it squats awesome coming out of the whole)

Limiting straps on the shocks to keep from ripping them off the frame(been there , done that)

 

Everything was hand built by me. No shops involved.  It looks pretty beat these days but she still runs all day at the track and drives on the trailer.  Some days that?s all you need to win, still be running at the end of the day.
