Let's hear the story.

Thomas?

Laurie?

They're probably somewhere between Ensenada & Carpinteria. Meantime, does anybody have before and after pictures of the new truck?

Dan was so stoked on the new truck he loved the way it handled, i think he won by 2 hours


they went down with 2 super dutys, one hauling the enclosed trailer with the race truck in it and the other one hauling the pre-runner with the open trailer, and on the border waiting to cross the chase truck hauling the race truck started taking a dump, so they tied a strap and the other chase truck was pulling both trailers with the pre-runner and race truck, so they are hooking up the open trailer to the truck thats having problems and taking down the pre-runner and drive it up(good thing the pre-runner is street legal) i gave Laurie my cousins phone number that was riding shotgun with me and Thomas has my number, i told them to give me a call if they needed my help

Now that is funny, not because you rolled, but because Dan was stuck there on the same hill and couldn't get his motor fired. We had to pull him down the hill backwards to get him straightened out, and then the motor re-fired.

Thanks everyone. We are still floating on air.

We are so happy with the new truck. It handled amazing. It was tail happy so it handled like a Porsche 911 through the corners. Dan loves the 37 inch BFG Projects. He loves the new 4" King Kongs. The front spindles are stronger so he was more confident in the rougher stuff.

We lost a belt at about mile 10 and had to put it back on. Our starter would intermittently not work and that's what happened when Ramsey helped us. We found out our fuel pick up isn't at the bottom of the tank and was running out of gas way before we should of. These are minor things to improve.

We made it home finally, we found out that the Diesel pump at the gas station just outside of Ensenada had Gas in it, not diesel. We are hoping that we don't have permanent damage to my trucks engine. We kept saying on the way home we would take chase truck problems over race truck problems anyday. But made a long trip home.

Gabby, I'll get Thomas to help me load some videos and pictures tomorrow from work. We have a great video of us passing a class 16 just after BFG pit 2 that shows how well the suspension was working.

Durka: Dan applauds your photography skills, left handed outside the window. Did you get any photo's of us at night. I'm hoping to see pictures of the reflective stickers.

Ramsey: Thanks for the help.

Tom: Where were you????? We missed you.

We were sitting at a Taco Stand Friday night after contigency and they had the evening news on and got to see our truck. It was pretty cool.
