    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.

    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?

    What are the classes for VW 5/1600, Class 11? Is there an unlimited? I started looking into the different classes and the requirements to race. My next project build was a narrow eye Baja to have fun and tow behind the bus but I am having thoughts of making it a racing Baja now.

    Class 11s is stock suspension, with full fenders, running a limited 1600DP.

    5/1600s are you “basic Baja”. More suspension /parts upgrade options. Same motor as class11.

    5 unlimited is full blown free reign on your suspension, but must still VW based. Several motor/trans options. Only VW motor option is T4. Big $$$$$ class. 70K+ for a class winning car. No class winning car still runs T4s.

    We will build it if it comes.

    Why does the rear shock mount get chopped?

    Class rules allow it. I’ll be running 14” stroke shocks that will require relocated upper mounts.

    Reinforced the clutch cable tube a couple of days ago.F6588467-C8FA-44E8-AE1B-CD2BFBE2FC3941276102-EE9E-40D0-98CA-96A3322F44A41FE0768A-23CF-4D88-8223-F681EDE1449F

    Also plated the vertical portion of the pan head    conversion.91BA5C7D-E890-4A00-B492-8B73D88404FF

    Riley helped me fit the pan head section today along with the new 4130 chromoly Kartek beam. Thanks Bud!F7BF5AE9-A299-4DC9-8FAF-F4D35A7B177AE655276C-2424-481C-8AE7-5B0860FD22ECDB07814E-1198-4C8E-9A25-2F21392B80CFFAA3E82E-3A36-4A1A-983A-03411D12EBE4EAA07FF3-F516-4B85-A9AF-59695B5CD17F
