My name is Mike and I have been racing bikes in the northern Nevada desert in the expert class for years. I also have a 73 Volkswagen Thing that my wife and I exploer the desert in. The thing has had mild suspension, a 091 bus box, mico stubbs and a Fat built type IV for about seven years and is now being changed. For the front I will be staying with a beam but with all Foddrill componets with coilovers and the rear will be coilovers also. I live in the Sacramento area and we don't have any any good off road shops, so I come to places like this to get some of my information.
