brian's had this truck for a long time now. i'd say at least a year and a half. jimco built the chassis and it's a big class 1 style with rear buggy arms and a chevy truck body. here's another picture from brian's website. i'm sure he'll be fast in it whenever he has time to come race it.

I should have never quit working for Ickler Electric....oh well. There was someone talking about it at the Good Guys show in Del Mar.
He has a busy schedule thats for sure. As long as the Napa Cup driver dose not corrupt him :)
So how do you label that a "Butruck" ?

Thank you, Tommy Bryant does he live in Ramona ? I thought I recognized him but could not place from where.

Looks good. Is it hard to see over the GPS, looks kind of high but nice non the less. Good luck Kash in it's debut. I really like the front bumper area of the truck. Actually looks like a TT

Very Very nice looking truck/buggy type of thing :) I think the GPS mounted high would be a good idea, big screen and less eye movement from horizon to screen. From someone who can make themself queezy driving. As long as the driver can see around it that is.
Some very nice fab work, can't wait to see more of it !

But lets be honest, Its a class 1 unlimited with a truck body and cutting brakes right?
Kinda like a R/C car. :D

From what I am seeing.... Most of the chassis is designed as a mid engine TT. The only thing that would not be TT on the whole thing is the IRS. Trip. I guess the IRS Still makes this a Buck, or Bucky. Very nice work.

alot of the Geiser trucks have the gps mounted at that height if not higher. some people just choose to use all of the wasted space/ vision that the huge hood delivers for dash space. helps work against the glare from the hood also.
