    I believe the “new” bettle bodies used by CRUMCO are glass.

    Class 5 only

    Hot VWs also now will not include a car that does not have a VW motor... that take 95% of the current crop of Class 5s out. A shame for sure as the new Jake’s cars are truly works of art.

    If you want to try them, I'll loan you a set of the 33"/10.50 General X3s on 15.4.5 Methods. I've run BFG, Yokos, Tensors and find these to the - honesty - the best. Adam Johnston tried them on his 5 car, watched us have zero tires issues at V2R. he just switched

    2020 SCORE Baja 500 Live Video, Weatherman, Tracking, Updates

    We had ZERO problems or issues. SCORE was very well organized and handled Registration, Tech and the Finish perfectly. Town was also very good. Most people on the street were not wearing masks but the CaliMax required masks, took temperatures and required hand sanitizer. Also, we were...

    Class 5 only

    I've worked with Jeff since his days at UMP when they were the P/S Gurus and long before starting his own business. I know he'll always get to bottom of any problem with his stuff. Don't worry about him telling you there's nothing wrong with his parts and not wanting to get your problem fixed...

    NORRA QUESTIONS ? Feel Free to Ask Here !!

    We already committed to this year's SCORE Baja 1000 peninsula run. I know my team cannot run the NORRA 1000 in October and then the SCORE Baja 1000. We'd likely run a NORRA 500 in October if that happens.

    The 33s weigh 51 lbs. Generals' specs show heavier so I was curious and weighed them. We dont run the 35s so I have not weighed them. I believe Travis shaved the 35s for weight and limited bite. We have shaved the 33s in the past but quit as we saw no advantage.

    Class 5 only

    Not sure of the clearance issue up front. We run the same arms, spindles, hubs, etc... no issues. Also, with a 2.4DI the 33x10.50 on a 5.5 or 4" wheel is over 34" tall and more than enough tire IMO and easy on transmissions. (My old car has NORRA, prerunning etc.. 2000 miles on an MD4 with...

    Travis "jumped ship" to BFG only because General does not make a 39" or 40" tire for his 6100. I think Travis won at least 2 championships in Class 5 and many more races on Generals. You or any other Class 5 team that wants to try them, let us know.

    You may want to try the General X3s. They are a great tire - both hard pack and sand - corners well and durable as hell. They have 35 x 12.50s (Chase ran those for a few years until he had to go to BFG for the 6100 truck) and 33x10.50s. We run the 33 x10.50 on a Method 15x6 Beadlock. We also...

    HOTEL ROOM RESELLERS AT NORRA, WHAT ABOUT IT ?

    On a good note and possibly because NORRA and others are talking about it, the manager of the OASIS in Loreto just called and said they cancelled "someone's" reservations and gave me my rooms in October. Good to go!

    NORRA QUESTIONS ? Feel Free to Ask Here !!

    Somebody apparently bought up large blocks of rooms in Loretto.... I called yesterday morning to move my rooms (I bought 5 in July 2019 for this NORRA) at the Oasis to the October dates. The hotel is booked already and I was "told" someone bought up a large block of rooms for resale...

    Class 5 only

    I've been racing Class 5 since the 1980s and am so happy with the group of guys that have pushed to revive it - Zac, Ben, the Belks, and even the Grabowskis - the "Dale Earnhearts" of the class. The "extra" weight of the steel is not a big deal as they are merely skins and I love the "vintage...

    Class 5 only

    I just built a 5 car that I believe will be competitive and comply with the current BITD rules as I saw them the most restrictive. I used a steel VW convertible body and windshield frame - limited the cab width to "stock" VW. I also used all "top" quality parts, Mendeola S5 trans and completed...
