He just a smart husband. Let the wife drive the Jeep and get attention = more Jeep parts.

That's a good plan, but the truth of the matter is that she's the one that makes him buy the good stuff for it; without her input, the Jaylopy would be pimpin' a D35 with some C-clips.

I have (or had) 2 more races on my calendar to run rain or shine. The first one is at the end of July and the jeep is prepped and ready to go for it. However I got an email on Friday from my boss asking me to train a new guy and drive him around North Carolina and Virginia the week of the race. I told him about the race and while he said I could do it, I'm really the only guy that could train this dude on the East Coast. Soooo.....


There is another ECORS race 4th of July weekend, but it is at Devils Playground and they race through a muddy creek- which 20 laps through it turns it into a swampy muddy mess. That takes a lot of the fun out of it for me, so I usually just watch that one from my computer. So far this year the 4 races in the South East that have taken place have all been in the nastiest rainy conditions I have ever seen, ALL FOUR! The guys who have run some of them are still pressure washing their rigs.


Also working on the next short movie for my "true to character" Mall Crawler build on Pirate. If you haven't seen it.... it's worth the read.
Ultimate Mall Crawler


Right now the jeep is driving better than it ever has. My wife and I argue nearly every morning on who takes it to work . My son begs to ride in it every day to the gym, so really I am just enjoying the hell out of it. It's tight in the corners so I get to sling it around like a Lotus Elise, so there is no getting bored. I do however have the monster itch to nerf every Honda Accord and Toyota 4Runner, so maybe I need to sign up for another event.

The mod list is still on going, but they are more big boy mods and take a while longer to save for. Hopefully I can have some good updates soon- right now I am waiting on a quote to get started on solving what knocked me out of the EMC



In the mean time.... I gave my son's Crawler the REDLYNER treatment:



Body off-


Stickers off and sanded down-


Primed white -


2 layers of primer, 2 layers of Stone White REDLYNER Racing white, 3 layers of clear coat-


Sticker charged and back together! I stole some of my wakeboard stickers for the RC-

Haha, you know I'm ready to go whenever. I've still got a ways to go on my own build before it's crawling the desert strip malls out in Cali

I could see all that on a new Tundra crew max. Love the Tundras the more I drive them.
