    SST looks awesome! I’d love to drive it. Maybe next year after I get some practice driving in Baja…. haha

    So I’m thinking about the team and pre-running, planning and all of that. I’m thinking about the navigation. We’re going to need two navigation units. One for the chase truck and one for the car. Which means that we’ll have two units available to use for pre-running. I think we should break into two teams for those days and concentrate on certain sections. Take notes, find alternative routes and stuff. We talked about using some razors to pre-run in. It sounds like we’ll need two razors with 4 seats? That would be room for 8 rides. 4 driver’s and 4 co-driver’s. Which would be an ideal set-up for 1000, but limit seat time in the 500 to 6 hours each. That also means that we’ll have 6 people minimum on the chase during the race. We’ll have one 4 door truck with the race trailer for pit stops, and probably another 4 door truck that was used to get the said razors to baja. That is room for 10 people max on the chase..

    That said, JJ just hired Pat K back, and he is kind of a shoe-in if you guys want to have him and he wants to go? We can talk more about that later

    Class 11 parts are here. Two identical engine cases. Same deck. Four OG heads, all the same valves/springs/retainers and the same combustion chamber CC. Two standard direct drilled cranks, with 8 dowel flywwheels. The idea is that we’ll have a back-up engine, and if there is a problem with the back-up, we’ll be able to swap parts (i.e. head) to keep going without having to figure out deck or rocker geometry. Quick change.

    Welded diff so that both rear tires are spinning all the time. Good for digging through the silt or on obstacles where one of the rear tires may not have traction.

    Also thinking about getting across the border with two fully loaded trucks and trailers. I know that there are people that can help with documents and insurance stuff.

    I actually have experience with this.  We’ll be fine as long as we have current registrations or titles for everything.  Sara will get us insurance with Discover Baja before we head down and get us set up with our tourist visas.

    No no, not this weekend. We still have to get a bunch of little parts to get before we can build them. Blaine Beacher is going to help dial-in some trick stuff on our engines. I’m looking forward to learning something new.

    You know that Redbull colors are blue and silver with a little red and yellow…which happen to correspond with our dove blue paint job and Colorado state flag colors.

    I don’t think they have a class 11 sponsor yet either….

    Cole have you been practicing what your going to say at interviews? Talledega Nights style? haha
