    Another Baja Horror Story on CNN

    http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/world/2007/11/18/finnstrom.mex.tourism.danger.cnn I must say, even though I was down there for the 1000 and love Baja, I'm definitely starting to think twice about the place. *Edit* http://surfermag.com/features/onlineexclusives/bullets-over-baja/ *Edit*

    13" vs 14" Brakes

    Im trying to decide on a brake size for an upcoming project car. Does stopping power/modulation/etc justify the huge difference in cost? Im shooting for around 4000lbs and with 37" tires on 17" rims.

    Ford 5.0 Transmission

    Just wondering if anyone had any experience putting a T-5 (mustang 5speed) behind a 302 V8 in an offroad application? Is it even a viable option in truck (Ranger Ext. Cab)? I know it will hold up based on HP and torque, but havent heard of them being used in the dezert.

    Source for a bolt on 2.5" GN snout?

    I've have had no luck finding some sort of bolt on 2.5" Grand National snout for some front hubs. Does anyone even make a snout with a bolt on flange? I was just trying to keep cost down a little bit, but if no one makes one then oh well. Thanks in advance

    Cons of a 2.0 Coilover?

    Are there any disadvantages of using a 2.0" coil carrier rather than using a 2.5"? Easier to fit, cheaper and springs are also cheaper, so are there any disadvantages? This would be going on a mini truck along with a 2.5 or 3.0 bypass per corner.

    What is the best way to route brake lines on an I-beam truck to get them away from the coilover? Down the radius arm? or can you take them down the actual beam? Hard or braided stainless line?
