    Correcting jump/landing attitude advice

    Bill, I am guessing that your are running un-equal length beams. If so that is a big part of your problem. Take it out and run the truck through some big G-outs. You will find that the left bottoms much harder then the right. Put more weight out back... I think you will like it and it will...

    Material stregth question

    Eric, You sure that beam is only 12" ???? Looks bigger to me. I only plan to span about 18' so it sounds like 6" might be okay. I will check out the program Bob mentioned to see what the calculations say... And as far as wood vs steel. Well they had to replace the deck at my place since the...

    Prophy Truck wins Baja

    First off it seems to me Mark and his entire team seem to have their brains in the right place and know what it takes to win. Congrats on your victory. Second why does everyone think you need 800+ Hp to go fast??? I think everyone should look at the 1/2 1600 times compared to TT or class 1...

    Low cost Racing?

    It seems with the 5-1600 thread that cost to build and prep a race car is a big deal to some. But what I am still wondering is why these people can't see that class 9,11,1-2/1600,5-1600, Stock Full and Mini were never and as far as I see it will never be low buget class. Now before you get...

    88 Bronco

    I just got a 1988 bronco w/ a 351 and C6 transmission. I have read through some of the 5.8l post but they are all talking about way more then I want to do to it.

    Why was the SD fire a killer? Don't be surprised

    Re: Why was the SD fire a killer? Don\'t be surprised I feel that the biggest reason the fire has and is still doing so much damage is from lack of man power! I have heard from several military people that they want to know why they have not been called upon as they all have had fire training...
