    2021 Curt Leduc swap meet

    The vendors buying from each other before the event is how EVERY Swapmeet is run, it’s the perk of being a vendor. I know Curt wants to make it fair for everyone and I will follow his rules......I’m just hoping everyone else will. jajaja

    Mickey Thompson's Challenger III project.

    Martin, The plan right now is only to clean up the motor, we will NOT be trying to get the car running. We only want the car to LOOK like it is fully restored, it will not be a full restoration as it is almost original from when MT last raced it in 1979 or 1980. We believe it might be worth...

    Mickey Thompson's Challenger III project.

    I’ve only been working a couple hours here and there the last week or so but today we had a good day. First thing was we were able to rotate the motor which is HUGE as the motor, as far as we know, is in good shape and rotates with minimal effort. The fact that we were able to rotate the motor...

    interested in finding a old Rod Hall dodge for norra....

    I'm wondering if that is the RamCharger that Baja Jones (RIP) from Loco's Mocos owned. If so, it was recently purchased back from the Original owner Walker Evans for a restoration and back to the old Livery.

    Well, I’m sure a set of front tires will turn up at some point, something always seems to fall in place at the right time. Tracy Rubio from TNC Machine called me on Friday and said the rear-end was finished. I was really expecting it to take about 3-4 weeks as Tracy and the guys are VERY busy...

    Martin, I’m pretty sure they made them that wide because I have the same size on #Challengeriv right now 😬.

    Of course, everything that’s on the car now is staying, nothing new unless we need it to help complete the car.....like rear shocks. Tracy Rubio (TNC Metal Fab) finished the rear-end in record time, I wasn’t expecting it for another week or two, Thanks Tracy. With the 3rd member mounted to the...

    It’s been a pretty busy couple weeks but not in the race shop. I have not been able to do too much work on the car but luckily stuff is still being handled elsewhere. I dropped the rearend off at Tracy Rubio’s shop so he could get the machine work finished. Tracy is currently building a 6100...

    No big plans for the motor at this time except for cleaning it up and making sure it stays original.

    I did a few hours the other day at Swanty’s race shop just because the rear of the car had me wondering. I have some old shocks that came with #Challengeriv and wasn’t sure if all of them went on the car. the two lower shocks are 3.0’s and the upper is a 2.5”. All are coil overs but I am...

    Feature Vehicle The Return of the Ultra Wheels Trophy Truck

    There are lots of things that can be argued here, especially who had the first TT. Big Oly is quite possibly the first TT....I’m sure that could be debated. As for the truggy, the Landshark was the most successful but definitely NOT the first one. Johnny Johnson and Larry Minor both had truggys...

    Funco SS1 navigation question

    We have been using the Baja 5 Elite, I don't think they make them anymore but i really like them. We have used it in Challenger IV, Dirtrix, Larry Ragland Woodstuff Chaparral and Norm Francis' 5 Link Chenowth. Here's a picture of it in Norms car.....

    Yes, “Panhard” bars, why do I always mess that up?!? Hahahhaha. As for the White Dodge, that’s a cody’s. It’s Rod Halls Dodge from the early to late 80’s. That restoration starts soon, Cody is looking for the right person to get the cage work back to where it needs to be.

    No, Larry kept the Magnesium motor, But we just found the markings on the block (that's in the car now) that says "MTD-14" which is the aluminum casting for the Mickey Thompson Aluminum block.

    Thanks for the kind words everyone, I appreciate it and I'm glad all of you are guilty of being enablers towards my sickness. Anyways, I did some investigating on Challenger III and it turns out my early thoughts on who owned this car before MT was correct. Larry Minor...

    Currently looking for a set of front tires: Mickey Thompson 33x14.50x15 Baja Belted. Must be in decent shape, must hold air and not plugs. Please pass this around if you know of anyone. Thanks in advance. Rory

    Speed Pre-Order

    I don't have one on order, I'm a buggy dork, so i have no skin in this game. What I can tell you is I have been following the process of the build and think these will be worth the wait. Also, if you know Robby, if you troll him, what did you really think was going to happen? Personally I...
