Yep the white Land Cruiser. We don't really have a good fit at BOR races (our class is pretty much dead outside the 1000. It's not just BOR) so they lump us in with all the trucks. We've had good luck with the tortoise and hare approach in that we've finished on the podium at BOR quite a bit through attrition. We've run V2R as an 8 truck and won the class so we're not super slow but compared to trucks with more than 11" of suspension travel we are slow for sure.

Ok cool. That’s a beast of a land Cruiser. You guys were moving.

that’s the only thing that sucks about smaller races is the classes have to be combined. But as you point out it’s not about how fast you are in a desert race. Hehe we were super fast until we went on our side. Connor is for sure the Hare in our family. He runs fast but usually has a problem. Trying to get him to settle down.

And we look at the BOR races as a chance to go have fun, like you, put other people in the truck that don't get time in the bigger races and if it all hits the fan we're 90 mins from home not 12-24 hours. They're also a lot more fun to drive as the terrain matches our truck better than the Mint or San Felipe. At Knolls we had 5 drivers for 5 laps.
