Yeah I actually lined him up with a buyer for it and the new owner is keeping Bryan on as a backup driver and Bryan's main prep guy Jesse is still part of the team in charge of the jeep. Pretty cool that he was able to sell it yet still actually be able to race it. It's getting a full prep, they picked up a currie front beam that they're going to plate and double truss, going from a 22 gal cell up to a 32 gal, and quite a few other things. Possibly ditching the dash and doing a newer interior setup as well.

Stuff




Old beam under the jeep, new currie that still needs trussed and gusseted ready to go under it.



3" shocks up front?




3" in the rear also! I also remember riding in it when we hit so hard that we launched one bumpstop right thru the frame and the other one literally exploded and shreded the whole top of the can wide open.



Their new shop... (what I'm most jealous of! Look a that space!)





before tear down...

I don't have sound but the baja 1000 is starting and you can watch it live here.

Actually it started last night, the bikes and quads left the start line around 11pm last night. The leaders are right about 500 miles in and literally seconds apart according to tracking! I've always been blown away at how any racing over terrain can stay so tight over such a long distance!

On our way to go sign the rental agreement for our new place.... Word to the wise, don't own two houses in SC and move to Vegas.. not a lot of room for beer money.

Yeah it sucks. We had some people come to look at the house earlier in the week and wanted to comeback and take a second look... I'm keeping my fingers crossed. I'm getting sick of dealing with realtors though (sorry if anyone on here is one) they all seem clueless.

95% of realtors I've met are retarded. The only luck I've had with them is through referrals through friends where the realtor is a family member .

Our realtor in Va sucked, both in Texas sucked, and the one we had here was awesome. So if you count the one that USAA tried to stick is with here.. only twenty percent have been good for me. By far the best was the for sale by owner that I did

Night in the garage replacing some battery grounds. Battery was bad so autozone gave me a new one. I think grounding the whole battery through a tiny 10 gauge wire might have done it in, but they don't need to know that....
