Nice video...looks like more of a porn house than a place to test race cars (who would believe someone put a hot tub in the desert and hot chicks would hang out with dirty men who spend way too much time working on race cars) :-P. I guess there was a screen or two with some 12 cars!

So I move this Friday. Im damn close to you now Erik so let me know if you need anything. And let me know when I can hang out at the flop house, I mean desert house.

Stu - the soft sand was pretty nice on the car. He needs a new roof panel and thats about it

Paul - wait until we have the first annual drive-in night out there. My buddy has a huge projector, planning on watching all the videos we have made, and the latest dezert people vid while sitting in the jacuzzi with cold beer...have some buggies around just for effect.

WA Baja - yeah you are right, by the time he actually went airborne his speed was about half of the 70 MPH. I was right behind him and got it all on video but the video sucked because the screen was dirty and all you could see is him making dust lol, then the car up in the air

Yep, I swapped out going across a wash and I was too close to a huge bush/sand mound crushed the brakes and then shot off side ways, I had the wheels cranked believe it or not but I wasn't even close to saving this one. It was pretty much the weakest roll ever.Thought it was gonna be way worse than it was. Ended up caving in my aluminum roof hatch and putting a dent in my front hood. I'm still trying to find some damage to the chassis. Like Stu said it might be time for me to pull out the old paint gun once I get a few new panels made.
