i guess that makes it an ironic drawing. haha! unless he backs it up in the new 5 car. Ill definitely have something to say about that. I'm thinking in 10 to 15 years that picture will include a ss 16 car, a 2 seat 10 car, then a class 1, and who knows what else. It will be fun to see who ends up out in front in 25 years. Thats would be an awesome picture timeline. we need to date them. Glad Ray's up on the wall! We need pahl to get on the wall to cement team skittles in history. VIVA Skittles!

Got the Baja all buttoned up. Went thru the front end from last season, and built some sub floors and installed a push pull throttle cable. Taking it to glamis this weekend with Laura and some of her friends. Thanks zac for letting me use your paddles! Hopefully nothing comes loose, last time I drove it was in July racing the del mar fair tuff trucks. I'll post some pics up when I get back

What size & thickness tubing should I use for a wheelie bar? I plan to race the sand drags and don't want to loop it over

My wife bought me a Go-Pro for Christmas this year..stoked! Hero 3 for $200. I made some brackets and tried out a bunch of different angles. I plan to get some footage this weekend and make a video;

Any suggestions or hints?
