    Seats -suspension or not?

    The political argument is hard to buy when other Mastercraft products are FIA approved. Not that it matters, but I've eaten crap really hard in suspension seats in a 1 car (KO'd myself, put the back of my head through the radiator/bent fuel cell because the seat folded in half backwards...

    Lobsam Yee has been in a accident

    I'm going to go see him this afternoon. I'm sure he knows he has many supporters, but I'll make sure to mention it.

    DirtSports-Driver of the Year?

    How could it not be Deegan?? He's going to win Lucas pro 2 and pro Lite championships, won XGames Rally, got a medal at XGames on a dirt bike, and he's dong the Race of Champions. Look at that list of drivers....if he does anything there (I bet he does) then that alone puts him in a different...

    Trophylite Financing?

    I wouldn't loan anybody a penny towards racing. From my experience, whatever you pay for the car is the minimum you would spend a year to race it. If someone can't write a check for 75k to buy a truck, they can't afford to race it, much less pay back a loan AND race it. Plus, what kind of...

    Todd Cuffaro?

    I started a CNC machine shop here in San Diego (Miller CNC) about 3 years ago and we began growing really quickly towards the end of 2009, so there's no time/money for racing, unfortunately. Hopefully soon. As for the V-8s, I think spec racing is lame in general. Pro Lite is a super...

    Esslinger Pro Lite motors?

    I think almost everybody switched to Nogrady.

    Entry Fees Lucas and Torc = RIP OFF

    I'm surprised you are OK with spending $175K on a truck, but $1500 entry a weekend upsets you. Entry fees are cheap compared to the cost of racing. If you run a decent team, I doubt that it's uncommon to spend $25k just prepping a Pro-2 each race. You should probably go race and see how it goes...

    Loors V-8 UL?

    Got to ask again... What Pro-Lites are for sale?

    My truck is still for sale. It beats up on most Fords out there...and it's cheaper, and it's more reliable, and it comes with enough spares to just about build another truck. Todd - 619-501-9866

    Pro-lite and Super Buggy Spec Engines?

    I would be REALLY surprised if the spec V8 competes with the current 4 bangers. In real terms, is the cheaper engine going to save a competitive race team a substantial amount of money? Maybe spend 225k instead of 250k per year to race? My Nissan Pro Lite is for sale, I only spent $6000...

    Congrats Deegan!

    THE FACT IS THAT THERE WAS NO PROTEST!!!!!!! Who is the driver that protested? Seems like it probably would have been me, right? Lucas techs cars after every race, not just this one time. As far as I know, this is the first time that THEY DECIDED to check wheelbase. The story is actually...

    Congrats Deegan!

    Lay-off the keyboard bashing and say it to his face you puss.

    Congrats Deegan!

    It's a bitter-sweet deal for sure. Nobody protested. Wheelbase was too long, Lucas measured it and enforce the rule. There's not really more of a story to it than that. Trust me, I was one of the 5-6 people there. Props to chris on being a really good sport about everything. Both the guys...

    What do you think is going to happen to the pro lite class next year

    There's nothing wrong with the ProLite class (I think EFI would be a really good idea though). Motors aren't always as expensive as the numbers that are getting thrown around on here either. Maybe a spec class could work as a sportsman/feeder class to a Pro class. A cheap motor probably...

    What Pro Lites are or will be for sale?

    Hord's most recent Nissan is Deegan's truck with a Ford. The Nissan before that was my truck from last year that Rhys bought for the flip deal. If somebody wants my current truck it's probably the best deal out there as it comes with 3 motors and enough spares to support a real program. The...

    Jorge Lameda LOORS Mechanic of the Year

    I wasn't paying attention to where the email came from. Probably just drivers and crew or something....whatever, Jorge is still the best.
