Default UDS up on bricks ??????

I have wondered of late why everyone, me included, put their drums up on bricks??? Other than the obvious i.e., killing grass, hot spots on wood decks, is there a scientific or practical reason???

Thanks,

Paul B

Those are all pretty practical reasons.. I do believe that airflow beneath the drum helps to control temps though..

I built a stand for mine and the drum seemed to run a little hotter than it did when it was up on blocks, so I ended up cutting a hole it the bottom of the stand..

Well, the left tire was getting bald as hell. The right front wheel was bent on the rim a little where Sadie Sue run over a log trying to get away from the Lizard Man. So what we did was parked the old S-10, it still had two good wheels, and parked the UDS. We put them both on blocks so we could have a full set of wheels for the turbo TA that was sitting back there on blocks. Now we are cruising for a hot woman with enough money to take us out for BBQ plates.

Proof, before and after. I know I shouldn't be sitting on that fresh paint but I'm so cool I couldn't help it. It was just to pose for the pic.





These guys were ticked off, they live in the UDS now, I gotta go get some charcoal.
