    LETS GO RACING!!!

    Started on this one a couple of days ago.

    JJ said I could pick one from the boneyard. Thank you sir!!!

    Franz and I never thought this would used used so we put it on the rack first, hardest to get to now.

    I “carefully “slid it into the place so we could pluck it with the F420. That’s a screw jack under the front.5C82554B-F377-4A4A-B5D7-67A8643E075D5F6ADDCB-A418-402D-84CB-F8D79F0EA48F

    Oops……🤣😂🤣😂🤣😂…I believe corporate has pics/footage of our shenanigans moving it from where I parked it.C202F4A1-90C0-4D3F-A7B5-22821815AE83

    This looks fun. Is it going to be ready for the same debut as JJ’s class 11?

    I'm at the age where "fuck off", "fuck you", and "fuck it" answer most questions.

    Sweet!  Pat, if you’re not going to use that body lift I might take it off your hands.

    Not going to make it to SlashX next month with this car.

    Shooting for the May 8,BOR-racing series, Dinosaur Dash in Vernal, UT.

    Exactly Rusty!  Plus it already has off road experience!!!!6912B647-0266-4B53-B577-F6645DDE396E

    Tore down the body and pan yesterday. Body is pretty solid. Needs a bit of rust repair in normal spots06333B07-E9D5-4CFA-B6E0-91DC4EFFB8EF0B1AEE02-3803-4E1F-9EE2-9237937D7B98BE55FFBB-3DAA-437B-9F00-5850C8046148

    The SUPER SOLID!!!!!! pan is what made me want to get it down out of the rafters.  399FB53F-765F-4AB3-90D0-C3776CCD0C2A0A9A06F3-CEEB-426A-9042-D12B4F02321A6056AC69-6618-45C1-B2D1-D3A13FC8E3FC2B50D25D-3170-45D4-86EC-A5B3AAE78C96

    Prepping pan before cage work begins. Yesterday’s progress. Shaved the seat rails.7435FFB3-B247-43C5-B71B-4FF1F993D09D

    Dissected this cover plate to gain access for the  torsion adjuster install. 75F335BC-1963-411F-9ABC-AA026F5BB77077F07C12-0F94-4221-BCF3-4CB3DD1EA89A

    Chopped the rear shock mounts back as far as allowed. 011ED420-BD95-4046-96F1-622F98A64E1AFF0FCFA8-BFF9-4C87-B445-3CF7CA9C196B

    I’m going to be running a link pin beam on this car…..This being a ball joint pan, by sectioning 1 1/4” from the pan head, to match the link pin being spacing, it gives you a 1” lift due to the BJ lower beam location being 1” lower compared to a LP pan head. D546EE17-A69D-4283-AE06-C677FEFD7B99F3424B5D-A2CF-4F78-BBED-709778C4C2EB

    Knowing very little about Baja’s, this is fascinating information.  Why does the rear shock mount get chopped?
