The race at Bandimere yesterday was a shootout by invite only, wish I'd have paid attention BEFORE I got up at 5 in the morning and checked the website!  There are no stick shift races in June so it looks like I'm off to Pueblo on the 3d for the Friday Night Drags.

 I personally think it has something to do with the lugnuts or installation/removal technique with the battery powered impact gun.

 I think it was the nuts. I haven't had issues with studs but do ensure I have some antisieze on them. They build up heat and gaul

There would be no heat or gauling if the studs where not 10 miles long.

loose lugs, cracked wheels, worn or oversize lug holes, and

 

condition of spindles, axle nuts, cotter pins, etc. Snap-on

 

hubcaps are prohibited on any class car. The use of “spinner”

 

style wheels or any wheel design that incorporates movable

 

pieces while vehicle is in motion or stationary are prohibited

 

 

Each car in

You can mess up a 1 1/4" long stud with a bad lugnut/crap in the threads....
