FEATURE _King of the Mud SPUR GEAR I learned this small trick from Mick Craddock at the 2008 Worlds in North Carolina. For very wet or flooded conditions, you will need a small piece of Lexan over the spur gear. To do this, remove the center diff and then cut a piece of Lexan to the right shape to form a fender above the spur gear. This prevents the spur from spraying water all over the inside of your car, including onto? into? your air filter. After you’ve cut the Lexan to the correct shape, screw your splash guard into place on the diff mount above the spur gear. You can get creative with this, but a simple, flat piece aligned properly will work just fine. In the mud, you will need much stronger springs and taller ride height. At the beginning of your run, it will be stiff and rigid on the track, but as the mud collects, the ride height will become lower and after a couple of laps, you’ll realize the car is working really well. Don’t be shy in a mud bog; use the stiff springs, and crank up the ride height. Your car will probably weigh about 15 or 20 pounds when it comes off the track. How much spring would you need for a 20-pound car? SPRINGS AND RIDE HEIGHT 58 WWW.VRCMAG.COM That looks like you ran through last nights Taco Bell.
