Sad I couldn’t go. I was informed I had plans yesterday with the girlfriend and her friends.. I just ordered some new fun things. I’m thinking of regearing as well. Is this best to do at a shop?

I plan on going in August!

My suggestion would be to let a shop regear for you, especially if you are experienced with them.  Depending on where you are, ORI in Winchester will take care of it for you!  Give them a call 540-665-0123.  They stand behind all their work and do a great job!  I just had them put on hydro assisted steering.

Good morning,
Just checking in. Did you get you regear and axles installed?
Cheers

Ideally, I’d like to regear but I don’t think I’m going to just yet. I want to get these axles installed still before.  I feel confident but don’t have a garage and could always use some help. I’m waiting for a snorkel to come in and will get these installed. I’ll message you separately and we can find a time.

Also, I have a buddy coming in from Indiana and we plan on going to Rausch in August. Is there a place I need to sign up?

As far as the August question, do you mean Camp Heep, or just going to Rausch?  If you would like to attend Camp Heep, you can become a member and then partake in the festivities.  If you mean you are just going to Rausch with your friend, you can just sign in at their office and buy the membership and day pass.  Let me know if this doesn't answer your question!

Josh,
No worries. We can get it all done when I get back.

Camp Heep is a Nova members event. This year they did invite another club... Does your buddy have a club in Indiana?  Maybe that will count as "other clubs"

Let's shoot for the Saturday after I get back.

Cheers

Hi Josh,

Rob is correct, Nova did invite the Black Goat Offroad Club to participate, like we did last year. Most if not all of us are either current and/or former members of Nova. We look forward to wheeling Rausch with Nova members and enjoying the trails.  Good luck with the mystery noise. It can be frustrating as I just finally diagnosed one of my own noises which ended up being a driveshaft. Hopefully we see you up there on the trails!
