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
