    Driver Baja!!!! What’s next on the list??!?!?

    Saving money for a couple stroker motors and a bus.

    I’m super happy with the way this car drove and handled the whole trip.  If I didnt have kids in the back I would’ve probably broken it.

    Only real issue I have with it is how much gas it uses. I nearly burned through a tank by the time we hit crescent jct. I pulled into driveway on fumes. Gonna have to invest in several Jerry cans

    Holden and I stopped at the Frutia bike park on the way home from Moab. I hit a good jump and a wind gust blew me sideways….I dropped my left foot and peg-legged the landing. Broke the shit out of my foot (talus). I’ve to go see ortho tomorrow about pins.😬 I won’t be into work for a few days. Sorry fellas. E60E20F4-84AA-466D-9A94-E9E79BF31F43

    Dang Franz!!! That wind was gnarly all the way home.

    Pat asked me to post my work requests in Parkway-Projects. My Class 11 look-alike looked like this after the original builder was finished. surfs build from side The next owner started to convert it into a true Class 11 racer, so it was lowered and other mods were made to make it qualify as Class 11, and it ended up looking like this. In this iteration the notched spring plates were removed and stock spring plates installed which rested on the stops. So it had no up travel and was harsh and breakable IMO. Bug when Alan owned it-rear I bought the car recently and plan to use it to run in the desert and on easy mountain jeep roads. I have lifted it back up to how it was with aftermarket spring-plates and front lift-spindles. It now looks like this. I still have the roof rack. Bug after Chad lifted it Pat is working on it, and the priority is to check that the valves are adjusted properly. I believe the push rods are aluminum but I’m not sure so that needs to be checked. If so I think the clearance should be 0.006, not loose-zero as for steel push rods. Secondly there is some electrical work needed; tail lights. Next it’ll need some CV work, but I’ll need to do some research on that first. When I bought it I thought it had 944 CV’s (aka Type 4) which are good up to a 22 degree axle angle. Pat says it now has Type 2 (bus) CV’s, only good to 17 degrees. Apparently the fellow who wanted it to be a legal Class 11 pulled the 944 CV’s and replace them with Bus CV’s because the 944’s are Porsche and only VW parts are Class 11 legal. So Pat, since I need to do more research, please hold off on the CV’s and just adjust the valves properly, and fix the tail lights. We’ll also need to talk about installing turning brakes. I want these for traction, not for turning. I’ll also need advice on skid plates and might have you guys build or install them. Thanks for your help. I’ll pick it up after the valve and electrical work and have you do the CV’s later. Let me know when it’s ready. Thanks.

    Sounds like a solid plan, car looks pretty good… Can’t wait to add another car to the baja gang!

    It sounded like a good idea but I’m gonna entertain kids while momma makes some slip on custom multi color to match paint job seat covers. It’s been like pulling teeth to get any sewing out of her since the second kid. I better space them out further 😂😎

    Scary thing happened this morning… oil pressure light wouldn’t shut off. Not sure if I was just being paranoid but it sounded like it had zero pressure.  I shut it off and took truck to work.

    “there ain’t no rest for the wicked
    Money don’t grow on trees
    I got bills to pay, I got mouths to feed
    There ain’t nothing in this world for free”…

    Save it for the moab trip Dario…. I’m not sure anyone is going camping this weekend… John was by here yesterday!!! He is loving seeing your car come from apart also!!!!! 😎 And in such quick order!!!! We were laughing that you were working on it as soon as he unloaded it!!!!  😎

    Well fuck, better get some pics while its shiny… and raise the rear end so I can keep up with rusty😉😎😁…

    Hopefully I’ll have all my parts for my fuel tank, it’s bleeding from cap, sending unit, and vent hose…

    I’ll start raising rear tomorrow after work and hopefully have weekend to go ride some trails with family 😎🤗😀
