    2015 Africa ECO Race

    Was checking out the website for this years race: See there is a USA entry, #232 in a diesel Toyota. Can't seem to find any info on these guys. Anybody know their story? Also, check out the pictures across the home page, pretty cool looking A-arm Baja. Good luck to...

    2013 Africa ECO Race

    Just thought I'd share this: Most of the site is in French. But some cool pictures. Especially of the classic class. Looks like JL Schlesser is leading. Why doesn't this race have the same following? Is it the fact that the factories and big sponsors are with the ASO...

    wearing glasses

    I'm hoping you guys can help me out with a problem I'm having. I have to wear glasses in the race car. They fit nice and tight, but once I begin to sweat, they begin to slide down my face. It was never a problem in the 5-1600 because I had time to flip up the visor and fix them. But things are...

    Manx Buggy Club

    Yokie tires

    I flatted 3 yokohama's at the last MDR race. Two were from nails. I didn't go but maybe a few miles on them, and they stayed on the rim. Is it safe to put new tubes in these tires and run them again as spares, or am I asking for trouble. Didn't know if the side walls damaged easily, as the tires...

    King Kong fingers

    Was wondering if anybody out there has ever changed from the standard SAW torsion fingers on their 5-1600 to the King Kong fingers? We have been breaking the standard ones, as the last finger only lasted 210 miles, and could have cost us a run at the class championship. It looks like I have to...
