    The "Ironman" debate

    I would for sure rather race alone than with a co-pilot. I drive differently when I am responsible for someone else....... would be cool if SCORE and BITD allowed this.

    On Topic Baja 1000 “Rain” thread

    Could def happen if it's ridiculously muddy - smaller, lighter and still 4-wheel drive - turbo will give it the top speed it needs in the faster sections. Can get around roadblocks easier also. Will be fun to watch this race play out for sure.....

    The "Ironman" debate

    Agreed - Ironman is ONE PERSON racing it all by themselves.....anyone else in the vehicle is considered assistance and therefore not Ironmanning.

    Yep - agreed - lower arms and shock tuning would also be on my list. 👍

    New to UTV Desert Racing-Need Advice

    Zambo has great advice - start there, always. Forums are not the best place to get accurate information on rules....give Sappington a call and ask any questions you need clarity on. My style is to start with all the safety stuff, and then find out through testing what other parts I might need...

    Doubt about LOORRS and LucasOilTV

    Manual transmissions in the Pro 4s are very expensive. Not only do you need the one trans that you are running, you will need a spare. To run a manual, you also need a lighter truck.....which immediately makes older Pro 4's heavy and out-dated and not competitive. There is more to what makes a...

    I think he finished around 8th or so both days?

    2019 LOORRS Glen Helen Rounds 7 & 8 photos and story

    Great pics!! Loved how rough the track was this past weekend - this is off-road racing, and it should be dirty and rutted and a challenge for everyone!

    Doubt about LOORRS and LucasOilTV

    An Unlimited UTV class would kill the class. If you look back at the history of UTV racing, the Unlimited classes only last a couple of years. The Production classes are much better for longevity, competition and OEM involvement. ?

    Doubt about LOORRS and LucasOilTV

    It becomes a problem when not every spotter can hear race control, and not every racer can hear their spotter. Also a problem when a racer doesn't agree that they should be in said position and you have an argument going on while trying to line back up. Lots of smaller issues creating a larger...

    Doubt about LOORRS and LucasOilTV

    I'm going to jump in here and say that Bill Smith has been around short-course racing for a LONG time, and has been involved on the racer side of it a LOT, which is why I actually like him in the position he is in and appreciate that he has been on OUR side of the fence for many years. The fact...

    Doubt about LOORRS and LucasOilTV

    Lucas runs a tight ship - I think sometimes we don't appreciate that as much as we should.

    Doubt about LOORRS and LucasOilTV

    THIS....this is what I'm hoping for. This gives us the chance to race both series if we want to run more races that in our own part of the country, or just the one we choose that is closest to home. Non-conflicting dates is key to allowing racers to be able to be more fluid between the two...

    Doubt about LOORRS and LucasOilTV

    The live streaming on FB this weekend was doubly awesome because I found out that anything you are watching on FB on your phone, you can watch on your TV with a simple tap of an icon. Maybe I'm late to that party, but I was stoked to watch these races on my big screen TV this weekend!

    I have flown into Appleton, GreenBay and Milwaukee......I think Appleton is my favorite. Small airport, super easy rental cars, not a bad price for tix. Rhinelander is hella expensive.

    I would be down...maybe they can leave off Mexico and add Elk River. :)

    ERX Live Stream - Racing Coverage

    The split lane there is great (one of my favorite tracks to race on) - if one line is faster at the start of the race, it can change halfway through....love that kind of stuff. Makes for great racing action and super fun as a racer.

    ERX Live Stream - Racing Coverage

    Great job with the coverage all weekend. I know there were glitches and some issues, but I'm just really grateful at this point for ANY series that is willing to produce live coverage for these races.

    Honestly, I feel like the Pro 2 410 program would be close to the same, budget-wise. If I were looking to get back into trucks, I would go Pro 2 over Pro-lite for budget reasons and because I feel Pro-Lite is more of a bash-fest than Pro 2.

    SCORE / BITD Insurance or lack of.....

    I never even thought that a promoter would have insurance coverage for me if anything happened to me medically as a racer. I always assumed the risk was on me, and that is why I have my own personal medical insurance. Have I been missing something all of these years? Is this a thing?
