No I was not on vacation since leaving Penhall's,I was head deep in rebuilding Heidi Steele's 7sx and transforming it into a competitive class 7/6 race trk,and PAB (cameron steele) gave me 6 weeks to have it race ready for Primm,sure no problem w/ the help of Jeff "O mouth" Lobster and the crew from SD,we delivered

With the help of Jerry Zaiden,Jason Campbell(no relation,i am way more handsome),and the rest of the Camburg crew the trk was out fitted with there finest class 7 legal race kit,also long time supporters of the Desert Assassins , Currie Ent. stepped in and built us this bad to the bone 40 spline floater rear end sporting Camburg hubs

She was alittle oversprung in the rear but racable thanx to Todd from Fox we got the trk to settle in,BIG thanx to Trever from PRIME FAB for letting me abuse your shop and letting our little circus produce . Primm didn't go as planned dropped 2 cylinders on 1st lap and a 3rd at the end of the lap but the DA doesnt quit we kept her going till SCORE timed us out 30 miles from finishing,but w/that Heidi is still in the points lead in class 6 going into the Baja 1000,thanx to all that helped that i forgot to mention,im going to sleep now,oh ya PAB had me make a new TT dash this week and only gave Blue and i 3days cause Heidi is racing the DRIVE event,WE GOT THAT DONE TOO!
SCM forever!

Came out really really great! 2 questions, why not backhalf it and why are you running non-equal length beams? Just wondering is all, work is top notch wouldnt expect anything less though:)

Kept the truck legal for class 7,which requires frame rails,thought resale would be better in the future,Camburg 's off the shelf equal length kit is to wide for class 7 specs (78") so we opted to run there standard unequal length kit otherwise they would have had to make 1 off custum beams,it was a better choice for both parties to run off the shelf stuff$,steering was a little simpler too with only having too build a single swing set ,once we have more test time the truck will be way competitive,we might even see PAB in the driver seat!
