    My opinion, sell your jeep, search hard and long, buy something already done that fits what you want to do. There are vehicles available that are already done and will cost you way less. Expect to spend LOTS if you want something to attempt to do both!

    On Topic Getting into racing

    They ride great, get up to about 80 mph, run an engine for a couple years. Used ones come with extra parts and spares. Don't run race gas.

    intercom/2-way /ext speaker mod???

    I wouldnt use two radios, simply add a external speaker and add a "y" splitter at the external speaker 3.5 plug in the rear of the radio. you can add a toggle switch so the speaker isnt always sharing your radio chatter. Then use the hand mic to transmit your parked talk.

    At what point ?

    Baja Dad, you are the one having some issues on here. I truly am concerned for bike riders, I am one as well as have I raced 4 wheel trucks and buggies. When I referenced SST and Indy cars, I was seriously making a point, just as why don't they race speedway bikes and the sprint cars at the same...

    At what point ?

    I also posted in the other thread, but I still reinforce the thought process of why race 2 wheel and 4 wheels on the same course when there is no competition between the two. Isn't it like holding a Rally car race at the same time and the same course as BITD race just because the support...

    V2R Quad/Vehicle Incident

    No longer racing but, in the past I do recall Casey having two separate loop courses to separate the 2 wheel and 4 wheel vehicles south of Henderson on the lake bed. So it is possible. I still cant figure out the mentality of non professional racers on bikes feeling the need to race on the same...

    How to get into desert racing... as a Virginian!

    Buy one of the Trophylites that are for sale in the classifieds on this site, can get one for 50k with all the spares you need. Race it for a year minimum and then decide what you want to do as far as racing. You can sell it for what you paid for it, just say goodbye to the money spend while you...

    How to get into desert racing... as a Virginian!

    Like your enthusiasm, but, its not all that simple. First you want to be in California and buy a street legal race truck. The two don't mix well, either buy a pre runner or a race truck. Street legal trucks don't do very well in racing, things like a windshield and all the other street legal...

    Whats wrong with you guys! Bob didnt ask to be adopted or say he didnt have any money, he said as we all know, he lives in Parker and simply needs some help getting a few tires out to his place. I know he didnt do all the relay work over the years so people would feel obligated to provide...
