so acctually, evan narrower, and not lifted( bad cv angles) is a better set up, your car is all stock suspension geometry ?, mine has 3 of the four og cv joints @ 340k miles, amazing
Our car sits about 2" higher than stock and is about 1" wider per side in front.
Yes, stock the CV axles are usually level in the rear and only about 5 degrees in the front so they last forever as long as you don't rip a boot, especially if your tires don't leave the ground often and you don't drive like a maniac.

Uh, plenty of unibody cars have run and finished V2R and the Frontier 500 over the years... Unless Jeep Cherokees and Comanches don't count. Just be proud of what was done, no need to embellish it.

put ralley in quotes, V 2R is a "ralley", like, the Pope is " sorta religious"
Yeah I don't consider it a rally just quoting the title of the article.

That's why I'm asking, trying not to overstate it. I guess I don't consider Cherokees to be cars. Assuming Beetles have too and some American rear wheel drives but I'd like to know.
Figure we're at least the only Japanese car to finish it.

Several people suggested simplifying the shirt design so here's another idea:
View attachment 230859
View attachment 230860
Would get higher quality logos if we go this route assuming BITD is cool with us using them.
Also still trying to find out what other cars have finished.
hmmmm, where's rDz😱???put more desert thingys in it, cow skulls, jackrabbits& road runners, a saguaro cacti or two ect, maybe a tt trying to pass you.....
