    Does anyone know who made these bodies?

    On Topic Rugged Radios

    I am not new to racing and I know what it is like to have and not have vendor support at races. But thanks for bursting my bumble that the ham radio store wasn't going to follow me around and work on my comms. I have also used both Rugged and PCI for support with different racing programs. I...

    On Topic Rugged Radios

    I get that. I work in manufacturing. We make a product for a company with their branding along with our own version of it. Same product but with visual differences. We have a suggested retail which is about what we sell our product for. They choose what they sell their version for but not what...

    On Topic Rugged Radios

    Look up TYT radios. Same hardware, buttons, mics, programming software, etc. some of the radio HAM guys have gone through them also. If they are different then that’s awesome but anytime the question is raised the reply is deflection and can’t explain what is different.

    On Topic Rugged Radios

    Hey Steve I will take that challenge. Know a few who do. But they are in the manufacturing industry which tend to be very far from the public line light. What’s your stake in the company? Sales/service? Maybe you could answer why is there such a huge mark up on the rugged rebranded radios...

    That is the whole narrow band/ wide band thing right?

    On Topic Rugged Radios

    Rugged has been selling the rebranded cheap Chinese radios for years. They change the color, put their name on it, and upsell it for $100 or more. Why do you think they are always having sales? Or have so much money for all of their company toys. As for the FCC thing from a sellers point there...

    News The Bronco and Baja Boot Return to Baja

    Sounds like a plan to me. I will buy the beer. I have been with race programs that have been kind of screwed over before when orgs make exceptions for manufactures because they are manufactures and when you raise issue with it everyone attacks you saying its great to have manufactures racing...

    News The Bronco and Baja Boot Return to Baja

    The complaint was stated in the post you quoted. It’s what is told to us in the industry about the program. Coming on a place like this telling us it is stock components or it can be built with off the self factory parts. To me that kind of insults my knowledge and experience when I can look at...

    News The Bronco and Baja Boot Return to Baja

    I get what you are saying with spending money in the sport. Not knocking that. But when they sell it as a stock component vehicle it makes me look closer. Selling fact to me maybe wanting to buy one. Then you see it’s a marketing tactic. Ok I get that. But then to come on here and try the same...

    News The Bronco and Baja Boot Return to Baja

    Where did you get your info from? I think you may have not looked very closely at it. Can’t be built with off the shelf parts from Ford. Unless they made big changes in the frame from when Gieser Bros built this one to the one that is being released then you can’t even get the frame under the...

    News The Bronco and Baja Boot Return to Baja

    I don’t disagree. Like the Honda Ridgeline that doesn’t share anything from a Ridgeline or run a motor that anyone other then The Honda offroad team can get. That comes from Honda Racing so it’s a Honda but no one can spec it out. Marketing, Honda can say they won the race. At least the Halls...

    News The Bronco and Baja Boot Return to Baja

    I second this. I remember seeing build pictures and even guys who were part of the build talking about the frame being a raptor frame. Raptor with race front suspension, linked rear end, and everything from the frame up is tube work. It’s a PR thing to say the bronco raced Baja when it is just a...

    Dust light for Chase Truck

    I run a amber beacon/strobe light. When setup at a pit it gives the driver of the race car something to look for. And if I am driving or sitting in an environment that would worry me about getting hit, dusty, same reason for a dust light, I can turn it on and have the dust light effect but in 360.

    Pressurized fueling accident (Crickets...)

    I have been there when two different TT teams got the systems. One I went through the training with them and everything has worked great. They also handle the thing like it is a bomb. The other team has done no training with it and treat it like a gravity system. They pull the hose to stop flow...

    2020 BITD Vegas to Reno - Race Updates and Info

    I second this. The price was good and the product was great. Hats off to coming up with the idea. The problem is the monopoly of creating the product. I know for me as a navigator I would like to mark my own course files to the car I am in and the driver I am codriving. But I have also used...

    2020 BITD Vegas to Reno - Race Updates and Info

    She got a cease and desist letter at tech from BITD. Everyone who had already bought the file she could give it to but no one else could buy it.

    Changes at Score

    So class 7 they changed the wording on the engine rules. So all turbo engines need to be sealed by a SCORE authorized place. Who does the sealing on the Honda turbo motor. And the I am guessing when they say "stock factory turbos" they mean OEM (the way the factory built them, compressor wheel...
