I was out running around in the prerunner, spectating for once ha

Yes, just before the first road crossing I stuffed it real bad and nearly rolled. This blew out the rear bypass and made for a horrible ride. I was trying out some Baja TAs that proved to be to much on the drive line, poor handling, and ended the night and the trans on lap 3. Friday night fun with all the truck guys made up for the DNF.

Up tell now this is how the car has done: 1st, DNF (Blown motor), 2nd, 3rd, 3rd, 3rd, 4th, and DNF(trans). Only the big stuff has stopped us. I will either be racing or helping you guys at the MORE/Snore race coming up in Sept. Who is looking for a brand new set of 33x15 BFG baja TAs?

What trans is in the car? I hope you shaved them. Too much bite on the tires for a 12 car if they aren't shaved, IMO.

Little update. Decided to go with the Yok diggers in the back for now. They have felt the best for this car, of what I've tried. The desert is cooling off and I'm ready to get back in the seat. Undecided on the next race. Might do the toys for tots race with the cool 2 loop deal, or and Laughlin race. Other than that some guys that are part of Belk's crew are trying to put a 1600 car together for the B1K, and if they do Richard and I are suppose to get to race a section. Fingers are crossed, definitely a bucket list, and its to la paz this year.

Hope you score a spot for the 1000! Toys for tots is a cool race, if it ain't too cold for the engines

Dont do it. From experience I will tell you that you will get about 1/2 of what you could get selling it complete
