I like it better than my last huge baja... i would say this one requires less maintence that that big bitch I had... :-k :-k :-k

BUT!!!!!! I want to take it in the sand damnit... and I KNOW I don't have enough power to do it like it is... and I want some sick ass paddles on it..... and ribs up front... I was looking at UTV paddles on line.. :-k :-k :-k :-k a little smaller.. I also want to wheelie this bitch... so I need some power..... I'm guessing I am gonna here subi subi subi here.... I need a tranny that can handle the sand too... :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k :-k

^^^I'll be the first. Wink Subi would be a good choice. \:D/ But if you would like to stay air cooled, talk to Old Speed. I watched a couple of his sand rigs that run big stroke/bore, single port heads, and a turbo.
Let me draw you a fucking picture!

After I typed it out it felt a bit too much like getting into your personal finances on a public forum, so I nixed it out of caution. Probably should have PM'd it, but glad you saw it. Smile
