Thanks for swingin by Andy! Good to meet you and the extra hands were useful!
So you decided to cut the top off before the tech inspector comes out?

It was nice to meet you too. I'll be back soon to help out some more. Would you happen to have a link to the class rules? I want to read up on them.

Yeah, I'm just going to go for it. No reason to really wait the more I thought about it yesterday afternoon. I actually last night sat down and wrote out a agenda and ballpark completion time for each section and I really think we'll be good to go assuming my progress stays as it's been all summer so far.

Rule book is found here.

hdrarace.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/11/Rule-Book-v1.1.2-FINAL.pdf

It's a bit strange if you're not used to how they do the rule books. The first 22 pages are pretty much covering everything for every class of racer. They talk about the general race rules, general safety construction, etc... Then down on page 82 is the rules that are specific to our class 2000. So basically we have to obey/build to everything in the first 22 pages like everyone does, and then our class specific rules are covered in the 2000 section on page 82.

If it's not listed or addressed, it's fair game...

Now that's for HDRA which is the series we're going to focus on at this point for year long points and to really be competitive in.

When we race other series, at this point most don't have that class 2000 so we'd be racing in something more like they have listed for class 1400 which is much more open to what you can do. In those races we could be lined up next to guys with steel cab functioning doors but basically a trophy truck other then that...

The I see the more I want to build a vw long travel bug. We have a family friend who owns Bunderson racing here in town. His son had one and it was pretty awesome.

U'd be surprised what some tires air'd down to 12 and a spool will do when you also have the luxury of momentum. In other words, I can wheel officially in southern nevada and las vegas too... LOL

Plus, you don't gotta be jealous, it's okay... Wanna buy a jeep? I'll sell you one!



I'm sure anyone in with the bunderson group probably has a pretty nice baja that's for sure!

I enjoy the truck and fab stuff. I have to say never having met Khris face to face he seems to be one of the nicest guys I've ever seen into the pre runner thing. Most of the others I've met are huge pricks and are most likely posers.

Lol I'm just giving you crap.

I've enjoyed seeing the pictures of the build so far.

LOL, you guys pretty much nailed the majority in Vegas I've noticed! In San Diego from up till late '04 when I moved the scene was still small and all the cool kids hadn't decided it was the cool thing to have yet so the people into it were far and few between and down to earth. It was pre flatbill and black socks days! Then in Az. the scene there was really cool!!! Everyone helped everyone and it honestly reminded me of a go fast version of the jeep crowd! At races it was common to see people loaning out spare parts to their competitors to keep them in the race so they could beat them fair and square or even loose fair and square.

Here in Vegas though, lots of egos, lots of my stuff is cooler then yours, lots of lameness! It's the prerunner group though... The guys that are actually out there racing all are down to earth and good people for the most part. Some of their groupies are idiots though for sure and think they're cool just cause they hang out in the scene.

I try to help out anyone and anyhow I can. It's rare that I say no... Lately I've been a bit more busy and up to my elbows with this project which is causing my other person projects to start to pile up now too. I've pretty much accepted that this exploder isn't going to be getting any lovin till probably spring cause I need to deal with issues on my toyota after this race truck and then it's next. LOL

Typically though, I still even with this truck have random people and even jeep owners swinging by to weld up things, borrow tools, use driveway space, etc... Heck, first time I met Merrick was me helping him put his lift on in my garage. I think the last time I saw his jeep I was cutting huge holes in his hood! LOL I've welded up swaybar mounts for a warmachiner and welded on some control arm skids for a dude that was just passing thru town about a month ago just cause...

I'll admit, I'm opinionated and sometimes think some of you guys are a bit goofy with your decisions and interests but we're all different but yet everyone on here seems like a pretty good group! Once I get the front end working in the exploder I'd still join up for wheeling trips, too bad it'll be a while. I mean, that's assuming you're willing to take the chance of getting shown up by a mall wagon!!! LOL

Oh, and this here... This is absolutely a first for me!!! I gotta admit, I just stood back and laughed when I turned around and saw what I'd done tonight! HAHAHAHAHA
