We went and did some more adjustments on the Class 6 this weekend to get ready for our next race at Ridgecrest. The new truck is coming along on schedule. Brenthel is doing a great job on it. I cannot believe how fast it is coming together. Our existing truck is for sale coming in the near future. Here is some video from Plaster City:

I forgot you live out there Chris. We are doing a couple more things to the shocks and going back out next weekend. I will bring the distributor to you next weekend.

Man that heat out there is a killer. We got out there at 7 am and it was cooking by 9:30. Great place to have in your own back yard though!!!

Hey Chris,
We ended up installing a dash 6 fitting on the water pump to alleviate bleeding the motor after putting water back into it. We now fill it up straight through the water pump and it has alleviated the air pockets. The trick was just filling it up slow instead of turning the hose on fast.

Here is our new team TK. My 11 year old son is going to race it next season. This is his first day in it a week ago.

Truck is looking great Robert. It gonna be a fun race.

We are going back out on Wednesday to run it again. Little too much rebound in the rear shocks. Chris, let me know if you are going to be around.

nice how much was the TK?! im looking to buy one and theres a couple on here that im lookin at.. would you say its worth it?!

I picked up the TK off of ebay of all places. It was basically brand new with about 1 hour on it. It is the intermediate version with the 250 cc Isuzu motor and it came sealed. It is great and they handle incredibly. Great way to start my son off in racing!

I purchased the TK for $4K. What a deal that was. Tires were still brand new. My son just loves it. What a great experience this will be to hone his skills. They are fast but we have not clocked it yet. They go through everything and handle incredibly.
