Like I already said, the rest of the people in this class (and others) had better take notice, this truck is for real and WILL win races this year. Aside from some minor reliability issues, Hoekers performance in Crandon left a lot of people scratching their heads and going, "WOW... what the $#^%@. Where did this thing come from!!!"

Congrats Ross, you rock!!!

thanks for the lesson in the right way to build a race truck. I was working out under a tree, welding in the wind by flashlight.

jr, i think the biggest accomplishment in builing this truck is that you don't have to have nye frank or some other grossly famous truck builder build a winning chassis. this truck is a true independant accomplishment combining expertise and products from some of the best companies in the world and a little common sense into an exceptional race vehicle. just the fact that you can't see anything special about this truck when compared to the beauties in the skunkz section tells me i did my job, and did it well. if you looked at it and asked why the heck did you .....? then i would have been disappointed in the results. i knew nothing about chassis design in january when i started building this truck, i just did some research, and found concepts that made sense to me, then i built according to that.
as far as differences go this truck was CAD designed, and as much as possible CNC created, from the laser cut arms to the CNC mitered joints on the frame rails. i did this to make sure this truck turned out the straightest truck on CORR's tracks. the links on the suspension were set to length based on the CAD, and when installed needed very, very little adjustment to make the geometry perfect. this is a trivial fact, but shows the quality of the build on the truck. We also cut 4-500lbs off the average weight of a CORR spec. chassis, i was told this couldn't be done, but we did it.
As far as billies excitment about last weekend goes, we came out of turn one at crandon first
with a truck that only had 3or4 race laps on it up to that point and some of the best racers in the buisiness were commenting on how well the truck worked!
we proceded to lead 13 minutes of a 15 minute race and i didn't even know how to drive this thing yet! we'll see what happens at barkriver in 2 weeks, i plan on being the first one to turn 1, who knows what will happen after that.

that's an interesting question that i can't answer since i've never even seen a desert race. i would think the suspension would be allright, the wheelbase is pretty short for desert, not sure how big a deal that is. this truck is setup for a co-driver, but would need the drysump tank moved. some pretty major cage work behind the rear axle and you could get a bigger fuel cell and some spares. all in all i don't have a clue, buy it off me next fall and let me know.

Real Nice truck! I enjoyed seeing the build up. Is there a rule against aluminum block motors or just an over all min. weight rule? Matt

CORR is iron blocks only, and in sporty 2 we have to run an unported iron head to this year. the head and tire size are the main differences between pro-2 and sporty2 now. CORR is also 10 lbs / CID with a minimum weight of 3600lbs in sporty 2 and 3400lbs in pro-2. i'm running a 358 and came in at 3700lbs, most guys are 410CID and 4200lbs.
