    Class 8 Truck / Info

    This one is pretty legit: Class 8 It's won every major race multiple times. Mid 140 mph top speed. Here's some video of it. Lots of Plaster City testing and aerial footage from last year's Baja 1000 in Red Bull's Driving Dirty. This is not the right truck for you unless you think that steak...

    RedBull TV - "Driving Dirty: The Road to Baja 1000"

    Just returned from Baja. That will never end. But we have many irons in the fire. Nevertheless, I will continue to head Race-Dezert's Ministry of Confusing Satire and race when I have time.

    The BLM ground troops should be happy.

    I know right? It's amazing! - they're "gun-free" countries that somehow have the highest gun-related murder rates in the world. I still don't know how it's possible!

    The BLM ground troops should be happy.

    Fixed your scatter plot for you. The middle-aged Australian cat ladies who conducted the research for the United Nations Convention on Estrogen (UNCOE) failed to include some valuable data. To read properly, multiply the y-axis values for the countries in the upper left corner by a factor of 5.

    DODGE RAM REBEL TRX give RAPTOR a run for it's money?????

    Great post! The Prefix Minotaur has taken off. They're being sold all over the world - even have a couple rolling around in Abu Dhabi and Dubai. The objective with these trucks was to outperform a stock Raptor. The Minoaur does this with big 3.0 Fox Reservoir internal bypass shocks front...

    DODGE RAM REBEL TRX give RAPTOR a run for it's money?????

    C'mon, Travis! Driverless cars and cup holders are great innovations - I submit that they will provide us even more All-American liberties - like safely drinking beer, eating Cheetos and watching TV while travelling. Imagine how much safer racing will be with electric cars and no drivers...

    DODGE RAM REBEL TRX give RAPTOR a run for it's money?????

    Race-Dezert News Flash: "Since the Off Road Community's warm reception of the Ramrunner concept vehicle at Moab in 2009, after almost 8 more years of data-driven analysis that indicates that Prefix has sold 140,000 Minotaurs, KORE has sold 90,000 Tactical Series suspension kits, and Ford has...

    LICENSING, is it time?

    This is discussion is spot on. And what about bringing in the FIA to regulate us? Baja racing would be like Greece is to the EU! Angela Merkel would have Roger Norman on speed dial, waking him up in the middle of the night, constantly harassing him over tire size, suspension seats and...

    On Topic You hit a spectator, what happens next?

    The last three posts offer great information concerning the breadth of domestic consequences - and maybe some insight as to why some prefer to race in Mexico. The cases above took place in the U.S., so the shape of the aftermath may be different than if they had taken place in Mexico. And the...

    On Topic You hit a spectator, what happens next?

    Randy, Chris died over a year before the incident I recounted on this thread. It's a separate event that happened exactly as recounted last January. Newspaper articles from that time document it. It has nothing to do with Mongo. Your posts ask some good questions, so I'm going to walk...

    On Topic You hit a spectator, what happens next?

    Pete, I'm not certain that you really want to hear my stories because you're not using enough cap lock and punctuation to emphasize your request. To get my attention, you'll need to use at least 30 more question marks and maybe all caps. I also find your inevitable expression "your [sic] an...

    On Topic You hit a spectator, what happens next?

    This is a repost of what happened to me last year. It's not specifically about hitting a spectator, but it should arm people with a little knowledge about Mexican laws and accident protocol involving death. I hope it can help someone if they ever get into a similar situation. Here's what...

    On Topic You hit a spectator, what happens next?

    Right on! You understood exactly what I was saying! Basically, something about something by someone taught me a good lesson about something non-specific, so from now on we can be sure that tradition will never be hindered by progress! You substantiated my point so well, I wish I could have...

    On Topic You hit a spectator, what happens next?

    So everyone knows, I think that a child losing his life for any reason is one of the most terrible things that can happen. What I'm writing below is not my usual satire. Yes, I have more experience with this than I have even posted. The information I have posted is searchable - for anyone...

    LICENSING, is it time?

    Pete, Believe it or not, "dislike" and "disagree," are not synonyms - which means they actually mean two different things. Intelligent people with similar objectives (like making racing better) often enjoy differing perspectives because contrasting ideas can lead to more effective solutions...

    LICENSING, is it time?

    This is a very important matter, so I spent 12.8 minutes making a test that will put this subject to rest once and for all. BAJA RACING QUALIFICATION TEST Baja racing is the most dangerous form of motorsport on earth. Consequently, this challenging endeavor attracts the most sophisticated...

    When its time to stop racing

    Believe it or not, there are many other things to do in life that are even more fulfilling than off road racing! Don't limit your interests; you'll end up with a very dull, unimaginative existence. I'm always doing a bunch of other things then circle back to off road when the urge recurs...

    CRAZY Italians - Try that in a TT

    Great footage! Thanks for posting. Requires about 100x more finesse and physical fitness than mindlessly bashing whoops in Trophy Truck. But it lacks the Adventure of the Big Desert. The short stages don't require the same kind of endurance, strategy, team effort and improvisation that...

    Who's Working on a Class 8000

    The govt. and media want us to believe that the U.S. economy is fine, but a lot of indicators point to an economic climate that resembles 2007.5. Generally speaking, the people who own these trucks have to work for a living and when there's no surplus, there's no racing. I think Class 8 will...
