Not sure exactly Eversen was trying to keep it at or under 2200lbs wet with a spare tire. I can’t tell u the amount of thought and weight consciousness that went into every tube. Also for service and race maintenance to keep things easy access when having to make repairs during a race. Here she is undressed.

One of the nicest looking 12 cars I’ve seen.

I’m already excited for the 2018 racing season, even though I have a brand new baby boy (our first child) due in February so I’ll be very lucky if I make it to Parker or even the Baja 500.

I’m always anxious to see who is racing where and what every new year. If there’s new cars or trucks built, guys moving up in classes, running different schedules, teaming up, or selling/buying their cars. What’s your plan for 2018? Here’s a few things I’ve seen that most of you probably know by now:

Andy Mcmillin in a brand new Mason TT breaking off from TSCO. I’m assuming it’s 2wd but not sure.

Bryce racing Dakar with Mini which is pretty cool. Also having a 4wd TT that’s been in the works by Huseman (I believe) for a while now. Is it done? When will it test? When is the debut? It’s been since before last summer.

Wilson’s have a brand new generation Jimco they’ve been putting together but not much info on when it will debut.

Davis’ bought the Chuck Hovey single seat Jimco Champion.

Pdailey selling his 10 car.

I heard Pflueger has a new truck being built

That’s about all I know. Interested though if there are more 4wd builds coming soon.

-Yes Andy Mcmillin's new Mason will be 2wd and will be racing the Parker 425.
-I've heard Voss's new TT is scheduled to be raced at Parker 425. Not a Racer but one that they built in house? I think that Carbon Series chassis eventually ended up in someone elses hands.
-Huseman's building Bryce an Awd. I think they are still a little ways from finishing it. Also heard sequential gearbox.
-Haven't heard that Pfleuger pulled the trigger on a truck.
-Team C will be racing in one of their Mason AWD TTs and prerunning in a twin AWD next year.
-We have a few other trucks waiting to be built but will keep them anonymous for now.

The Husemans are still working on the 4WD truck for Bryce. I hear rumors that it will have a manual transmission also!

I saw on FB that Robbie Pierce is selling his Jimco TT and having them build a new one. Now that he sold Impact to Sparco I expect we will see a lot more of him in the desert.

Robert,

What do you mean "twin AWD"??? Is it a twin truck to the Team C truck you mentioned or twin something else like engine???

As I type this out I figure you probably mean twin truck, but let us know for sure if you can...

We are currently selling our class 1 car and will be teaming up with Brian Shaleen from Fusion Offroad for the 2018 BITD season in a New Fusion 6100. We will race our Jakes Fabworks 5 unlimited in various races as well.

We hope the new truck will debut in Parker. It'll come down to the wire.

It’s race week in Parker, any one with any updates? I see that Dailey is racing the Honda this year. Lots of new Herbs trucks. Householder old TT racing in 6100. Davis already has an overall win in the old Hovey car.

Harley Hendrickson jumped up to 1600 this year and took home a win at the first MORE race of the year in his first 1600 race ever. And he got most dominant driver award setting 5 out of 8 fast laps. Another fast 1600 driver to add to the lineup.
