    On Topic Help with sand rail suspension info

    Beam cars do just fine if they are set up properly. It's like anything else.. A properly built beam set up will do better than a poorly built A-arm. The amount of travel you end up with is only part of the equation. Things like bump steer (or preferably the lack of it) and how much downward...

    Study says BLM land visitors prefer quiet recreation

    Craig was one of those people who was always willing to help, give advice and offer snide remarks. I am better for having known him and proud to call him a friend.

    optima batteries

    I thought Costco quit selling them. The last one I bought there was very different. It was about $40 cheaper than those found anywhere else.

    GPS, whick one?????

    You can't convert the maps, but Lowrance USR files and pretty much anything else can be converted using GPS Babel. It's a free download and simple once you figure it out. I'm guessing you may be trying to find a way to put the race course track provided by, as an example, BITD, from the...

    What does bench bleeding a M/C accomplish?

    You can do it without bench bleeding, even filling from the master cylinder. It's just easier to the the MC first. And yeas, you can force the brake fluid through backwards. It works, sort of, but it won't usually fill and clear the air from all of you pistons/wheel cylinders and can make a...

    No more sportsman division!

    The sportsman class is one of the things that makes desert racing completely unique among sports. Doing away with the class would take away not only an important part of the history of the sport, but would reduce a lot of its appeal to many people. There are a lot of people out there who run...

    PEER going after Vegas to Reno

    Most of this sounds like typical PEER lies and hyperbole. They are one of the most malevolent organizations in the arena of public land management and have a track record of making statements that are later proven false, or at minimum have no factual backing. Bringing in completely unrelated...
