    My name is William, I studied Mechanical Engineering while in college. When I graduated I went to work for a KTM dealer close to home and ran the shop for about 5 years. I handled all new bike assembly and modification, as well as all engine and suspension work on new and old bikes, as well as handled and performed all service on both new and used bikes.

    In high school, I used my senior project to justify building "a big block engine that utilized forced induction". I was able to get a hold of a very clean, low mileage 1972 Dodge Challenger as a sophomore in 2006 (I knew pretty far ahead what my project was going to be). I found a 440 that came out of a dismantled 77 RT motorhome. I stripped the engine down to the bare short block, had it align-bored, decked, bored .030 over, and then I stroked it to 500 cubic inches. It has an F1-R ProCharger that will handle up to 40 psi of boost (the mains caps are reinforced and tied together as well as into the rest of the block).

    For as long as I can remember, I've always been mesmerized by suspension. On a car, bike, dirtbike, and especially Trophy Trucks. Watching the body of a vehicle like that remain almost still as it does 100+ mph over giant bumps and whoops is absolutely hypnotizing.

    I built my 92 Toyota pickup shortly after I got it during my freshmen and sophomore years in high school. It got SAS'd, Locked, geared, and setup by me in my parents garage and on the side of the house. That was over 12 years ago. Watching the suspension flex while I crawl it through Fordyce or mess around at the Rubicon will NEVER get old.

    My time at KTM showed me how fun it is to go fast in the desert, and it was during my time there that I started to build my 90 pickup into a pre-runner. It's an ongoing project, but one I'm very excited to complete and one of the big reasons I'm finally on RDC after all these years. This has been one of the most helpful places I've come across when it comes to looking for advice from an incredibly experienced group of individuals.
