    Steve "Chappy" Hanson

    I know when Rino Navera broke his back at the Elsinore Lucas race Steve went and sat by his side. Rino has said more than once that his company and prayers made him feel comfort and peace. He's also always there at the beginning of any desert race for a quick prayer. I know I will go and donate...

    Testing at Speedworld February 6th anyone interested.

    Just wanted to give a big thanks to Rob and all the Stronghold guy's this past weekend. Rob was a huge help to Rino and really made him feel comfortable with his new ride. He started adapting to the truck with every session out. He humbly admitted that the u/lites are a handful and the hardest...

    Snore - allows ecotec's in class 10

    Talked to Adam from Wiks Racing Engines on Wednesday night. He should have recieved a 2.4 today, and a 2.2 by the beginning of next week. He's going to dyno both motors and hopefully have some numbers by the end of next week. I will post them here when he gets all the info together.

    Snore - allows ecotec's in class 10

    This was a smart move on SNORE's part. I think BITD should adopt the same option.

    ECOTEC engines to be allowed in class 1000

    No they do not make 175lb/ft of torque. I meant that the torque number I saw was the same as the other quote posted. It was regarding the numbers for the Ecotec. Sorry for the confusion. I agree! But power doesn't hurt when your going up a sand wash!

    ECOTEC engines to be allowed in class 1000

    I looked up the numbers also and found 173 h.p @ 5800. Torque the same. I know not a big difference but thought I would post it anyway. I understand from an economic stand point this is a great deal. But competitively speaking, the Ecotec's are over 10% down on power over a good Honda. Ashcraft...

    Congrats Deegan!

    I know from a reliable source out of Brandt's camp that it was a protest and it was 3/8 of an inch over the allowed wheelbase. Tough deal on both sides but I know that I wouldn't want to win that way!!! Just my two cents.

    torc on espn2 - insanely great!

    I also agree with Rob and the others that said there was way to many close ups. I really don't want to just see a wheel of a truck! Maybe a suspension shot now and then. But to just be zoomed in on a part of the truck??? But with that said it was probably the best show that they've done yet.
