    2020 Mint 400

    The Mint 400 has been run under more sanctioning bodies and promoters than any other off road race that I can think of and it has always survived. SNORE will be a great value with tons of cars. Laughlin will Laughlin, logistically simple, not a bunch of race miles. The Mint will be a difficult...

    I use the post anchors becasue I'm used to them as they are the same as the Hans and they dont rattle like the D ring. There's no real safety advantage as far as I know.

    You might be doing it wrong. The Hybrid is a bit more cumbersome, but assuming you have the right size and its a adjusted properly it shouldn't be any more restrictive than the other brands in its price range. The tendency is to have them too tight, if you cant take a deep breath while seated...

    Another broken back at the Parker 425 - Suspension Seats

    Without making a long post full of quotes, I'll address some of the previous Q&As. You don't really need your seat to have suspension..becasue its really not suspension, its just a spring with no dampening. Air seats in buses and alike are for comfort, the pass DOT specs I'm sure but they don't...

    Yes, if you can spend the extra money the Victory is lighter than the Competition. The size info you posted is the same thing most companies have used for years and it makes no sense. Below is the chart we came up with for Sparco and Alpinstars by actually measuring suits. We don't take the...

    2020 King of Hammers!!!!!

    I was at KOH until Saturday night, headed back tomorrow. I'll say for the the lifetime off off road events I've attended or participated in, this by far is the most impressive from every aspect. From the registration process, to the miles of power cables, multiple stages, vendor booths, security...

    The Single Layer Sparco is a great option for a Single layer suit, it meets the SFI 3.2a/1 like many others. Single layer isn't always cooler, to make a single layer pass the SFI spec, but usually are not super breathable becasue of the materials used to meet the lower price points . Multi layer...

    I have enough of the Red/black to do a pair of seats.

    Sorry, I don't have enough of the tan for 2 seats. I think the fabric is from early 70's Ford truck and Bronco, a fabric shop or one of the big online resto guys may be able to help. I'll keep my eyes open, I'm looking for something similar for another car I'm working on now.

    Latch vs Cam restraints

    Coincidentally, we had a IG post today on Cam Locks. Ratchet belts are fine if set up correctly, but a proper set up on a standard system should get you as tight as you need to be. I see ratchets being used as Band-Aids to a poor set up. The mounts are usually in the wrong spot or the...

    Thanks sb, the commercial has been around but I never get tired of watching it. The truck being used is actually the pre-runner(almost running, should be at the Mint), or at least in parts. A couple of the things that I think actually should be left in the past are tube socks and OP shorts...
