Warpy, old timer friend says the aluminum block was built by Mondello for Mickey if that helps source parts. Said the deal was Mickey bought in bulk and had his name put on them.
mickey tompson baja belted on craigs list, look like your example , on wide five baja bug centerlines, 33?, ill get more infoOf course, everything that’s on the car now is staying, nothing new unless we need it to help complete the car.....like rear shocks.
Tracy Rubio (TNC Metal Fab) finished the rear-end in record time, I wasn’t expecting it for another week or two, Thanks Tracy. With the 3rd member mounted to the titanium axle tubes we can now measure the rear shocks and have them made. We also have to make sure the 3 link off of #Challengeriv is the correct fit so we can have another one built.

Once I picked up the rear-end from Tracy I dropped it off at Swantys race shop. Unfortunately I didn’t get a chance to mount it on the car but I might do that today....just because I’m anxious to see how it fits.

Also, I’m still looking for 2 front tires for this car. Looking for 33x14.50x15 Mickey Thompson Baja Belted tires. Not sure if they made a 30-31” tire in this style but would consider them if they were the same width (14.50). If you know of anyone with a set (2) of these tires PLEASE let me know. Picture for reference below...

I will post more pictures of the rear-end mounted when it’s bolted in. Time to tune into the Baja 400 race as it is starting shortly.
