JJ are you staying with stock shock mounts in rear or are you going longer in back with side mount. I can help you and if you want to learn them to do on your own you can order the shims and oil seal kits threw my friend Dez and I can walk you threw it or you can send them to me and I will do them for you you order the things I tell you and I will pick the stuff up and I will rebuild and revalve them for you then send them back either way we can get you working a whole lot better in the rearRustabusParticipantMarch 10, 2021 at 6:33 pmPost count: 3205

Class 11….. Haven’t posted anything about this in a month… Although, I think about it everyday. I haven’t felt soo beat down in a long time… eye opener.. I can’t believe how small the items where that took me out of the race… Ignorance I reckon.. I had soooo much good luck with my play baja, that I over estimated my ability to build a legit offroad Race Car. I was taken to the school, put in my place, but at the same time, shown the way… 😎 If you don’t learn something from a good ol ass kickin like that, your bound for another ass kickin… 😎 😎 😎
So… I need to start getting my shit together I guess… Cause I wanna do some more offroad racing!!! I want 1131 to finish the damn race, ATLEAST!
July 31st is the next Empi tripple crown race… and I would prefer my shit be fresh for that race, so not sure I wanna race before that…. but maybe… I could be talked into it…. 😎

Dave!!!!! Good to see you check back in…
I heard Blake Wilkey finally got beat in class 11 last weekend !!!! I would love to know about last weekends racing!!!! I heard Adrian rolled his car!!! I would love to talk to Sletton or Project Pete about the race.. 😎
Rail is close, fun can be had in between class 11 racing now… 😎 😎 I have always loved going to the dunes.. I am excited to do it again… this time old man style with a fast toy… 😎
There is a long long piece of aluminum out back that would make a great end to end skid plate… 😎

Audrey ordered us some Rugged Radio’s the other day… I am trying to get my shocks outta here for rebuild… Need to decide what changes I want to make to my car before the next race!!!!
I guess I should suck it up and put a weber on it… and a good air cleaner… those two items would make a hell of a difference right there! I also think a skid plate would be sweet!!!! and some yokohama 7.0’s!!!

Our Rugged box came in… We are going to do an “unboxing” video… I am going to try and do that stuff more often… Companies love it…. it helps grow our relationship, and hopefully me scratching their backs will eventually lead to them scratching ours!!! We should be doing this with empi, WW, and anyone else we order from.
I dunno where to send these shocks, and Fox hasn’t responded to my request yet… I’m about to contact Bilstein and ask for some class 11’s from them!!!

I would love to race again.. Thats for sure.. Just been messing so much shit up on my own shit lately.. makes me wonder if I have been trying to have TOO much fun? and need to back it down a tad…. 😎 😎 Work got me here…. seems like I should be concentrating on that… 😎 😎
Let me get my truck back together and then I will look towards Glenn Helen..
I don’t want to be a quitter…. I have a sweet start on a sweet car…

Doing work… Ben about 8-9 days now.. Truck is painted, and tit;s… The race car is moving up the list slowly… but surely…. Franz ordered all the parts to fix my fox shocks… we had no luck getting ahold of anyone to do them for us… As said by Franz, “we need to figure them out anyway”… so he is on it.. ordered shim kit also… We need em stiffened up…
Also have carnage motor’s… and my one good one.. The kombi motor.. which I still think should become the sand rail motor.. 😎 and put a new motor in the kombi after I RE restore it.. I want a more camper interior.. and the paint is literally falling off… 😎
