This pulled into the parking lot this morning.....


A very nice gentleman named Scott Kincaid built and owns it. It is a Chevy powered, 6 seat (5 adults, 1 child) J-Armed, Truggy Prerunner. He started it last November and it looks like he took his time. The rear suspension is 3 linked with a 84" wide Tubeworks axle. It soaks up the whoops with the longest King Bypass & Coilover shocks I've ever seen, 22" travel! The front has one bypass and coilover per side and cycles 24.5" of travel and the rear was 24". The swaybars in back are from Cal-Prefun and the axle is a custom unit with 5.10 gears and other trick components (Wilwood brakes, etc.) Other goodies I noticed were Autometer Liquid Filled gauges, JAZ 32 gallon cell, Howe Power Steering, top-of-the-line coolers (oil, P/S, coolant), and a grip of other fun items to drool over. I'll shut up now and let you check it out. By the way it tops out at 140 MPH and the motor has 620 HP.

If you look hard, you can almost see the motor:

That's it, look for it in the dirt, or should I say street (it's registered and street legal in Arizona)

They are 35s. The car is just so big that it makes them look small.

I know it was over $150K

I found out the motor is out of a shop that builds the Winston Cup motors, can anyone say $40 grand?

With all that horsepower (and weight), you'd think he'd put a larger fuel cell in that thing. Looks like there's room for a bigger one? Unless thats just too much weight in the rear with all the seats full! Definitly a nice looking ride!

He had that thing at Havasu Springs last weekend he had just finished
it working 3 days and nites he told us he had $120 K in that thing. The chassis
is a Playtech out of Anaheim..You should hear it run.
