Sorry guys there is two posts on this, one just took forever to post. I'm getting mixed reviews when i ask people about building a new truck. i've even been told 145k turn key for pro-lite. i really think this class has much more room in it for more trucks. my concern is the motors, who is building a good chevy powerplant if anybody.
There are three people building Chevy engines for the class. Adam Wik built the engine in the truck he drives (Colorado 2.8L based). Dan Pentico has an Ecotec built by CBM in his truck, and Matt Barney has an Pontiac Super-Duty based engine with a Brodix head built by Dan Crower I believe.
Yours turns out? What happened to the Ford? How many times did you have it out a total of 6 or 7 ? I thought it was the total package, one that I would have been stoked to race for sure.
Last season we raced the truck and at the last Chula vista the motor let go! Esslinger went thru the motor and updated everything!!! No more stock water pump the head cool differently and build a bit more power!! At our first race this year we got a total of 8 laps between practice, qualifying and the race... Not how I wanted our year to start(and stop for me), Esslinger took the motor back rebuilt it and it is ready to go back into the truck, we have a few motor mounts to modify and the truck will be ready to go!
In the off season we started a new Unlimited lite chassie and I am VERY excited to get it togather and see how the Ecotech that has been a 1 year project actually come togather, Adam Wik really wants to see the motor done, he is as curious as we are!
