Update photos

I'm racing the Navajo in the Del Mar Fair tuff truck competition on June 28th. I wanted to finish the lights, bumper and hood. I also upgraded the rear shocks to 16" fox 2.5.

You looked great out there. The chassis is very balanced:chug:

Do the McNeil's still race in these competitions?

Yes. The McNeill are there in full force. They endo'd their explorer the first day and crushed the roof.
They jacked it back up and raced both days.

I really have to pay more attention. That would have been great to watch. Last time I was in that arena, my daughter was competing regional Arabian horse show Sure looks different.

Dang, they seem to make a habit of that at these events:eek:

Good to hear that they're still out playing though:thumbsup:

Wow, that suspension just worked.. It soaked up the jumps with ease. Looks like it got a little out of control on the whoops section but you kept it composed..

That really looks like fun too....

That's funny. Yea the AC lost its charge over the summer. Time for a new compressor. Trying to get it ready fir the desert season.
What shop is yours?
I work at Service Auto Care. It's at the other end of the building.
