All the top trucks you can win with. I have driven or raced most of them and they all have pluses and minuses. In the last 24 months the cost of racing one of these things has just gone off the chart as people continue to push the limits of power which in turn breaks stuff or reduces the parts usable life. Still love my Geiser # 6 as it may not be the fastest anymore but it always gets to the finish line and doesn't break the bank doing so. Excited to get our Herbst 6100 in a couple of months who knows maybe one day we will put a big motor in that one.
How about those TSCO 6100's
Yes but it all depends on what your goals are. Today the biggest issue with 2WD trucks is what are you running for power. The trucks with big blocks or Gibbs package seems to be somewhat competitive. Realistically you are going to have a tough time breaking into the top 5 in the bigger events against the AWD if they stay alive. I remember seeing a sign at Don Hatz VW Racing engines back in the day that said, Speed cost money how fast do you want to go. Some people have lots of money and want to go really fast.
So are all the tt builders developing a AWD truck now? Ive heard of a few but haven’t seen much evidence.
A few have made them already Geiser, Racer, Jimco is working on theirs.So are all the tt builders developing a AWD truck now? Ive heard of a few but haven’t seen much evidence.
Herbst is still building 2wd TT's (same platform as their 6100). Ryan Arciero won V2R last month with a brand new one straight out of the boxThe jimco looks promising. Herbst smith has messed with awd for so long I’m surprised they don’t have a better platform. Their 6100 is a bad bitch though.
We have 12 methods total for the race car prior to contacting Method about any sort of help. When I did reach out I got a very automated response both times two times in a row. “You must buy 8 race wheels of the same SKU# to be eligible for our program”. Well we’ve already done that and I’ve explained that. We’d like to purchase more wheels for our race car and chase trucks. Never heard anything back.
Also looking at the contingency payout schedule they skipped from Class 1 to the Pro UTV class. They don’t want to support us or class 10, so we won’t beg, but we’ll most likely take our business to Raceline where I’ve heard they have real people who will take the time to speak with you and maintain a relationship. I’m sure the product is equal if not superior.
Assuming you were referring to them testing with Mason this week??? They installed the Masomatic sequential trans into one of Concrete's Herbst/Smith trucksYet Thompson had to buy a Mason to get into a AWD for concrete after Herbst/Smith declined to build one for him.
