Angry

Was waiting patiently for the new Mexico travel policy revision to be released because there was rumor that they were lifting the restriction on South Baja meaning that I could then travel to Mexico to see the Baja 1000. Yeah, they lifted the restriction on South Baja, but imposed a new restriction on Baja Norte. Great, last race I could have gone down and watched the beginning half of the race if I could somehow get down there without going through ANY of the border cities. This year I can go down to watch the end half of the race if I take a ****ing boat to La Paz.

Wait, what??? I've never been much further south then coco's corner. Personally, best race to spectate is the san felipe 250 if you're going to hit a mexican race.

Only way I'd really want to do a 1000 again is either racing or if I could get some friends of mine that are involved with Locos Mocos to come down and tag along with them. They do it right in my eyes... Other then that, you won't see me down for a 500 or 1000. San Felipe is fun though!

Have you ever thought about building an offroad type race course out of pavement? I honestly have thought it would be a blast! Maybe even like a HUGE skate park type thing with bowls and stuff to rail around in with race trucks. Well, looks like Robby's doing something of the sort for this weekend's race in anaheim!







Makes me wonder what he's got in store for the vegas round...

Hardly any aftermarket support...can do this all day,LOL

Actually, what I probably would have done would be to find a 2000-2003 Rango R/T with as low of mileage as possible. I really have no complaints with the Rango, other then the dang HVAC box problems. other than that, its a very solid truck with no issues.

If my travel restrictions are lifted in time for the 250, we should get a group together and head on down!

That's probably like my dog everytime a toyota or an explorer drives down the street when I'm not home. Do you make this super high pitch yelping noise that sounds like a dog being stabbed to death at the same time?



And Power... Did you get those HID's from Merrick?

Work nights after 3pm usually.

No, I haven't met up with Merrick yet.

I have some sexy goodness planned for this little guy...

Going to rewire EVERY accessory from alarm to lights to OBA through this for a MUCH cleaner wiring condition under the hood. It should come out pretty slick and clean!
