a quick update, just got the master cylinder in and made up some new brake lines. I still need to add a couple of straps for the brake lines but thats pretty much it.

nice build. im throwing around the idea of building a 7sx truck also with my 07 reg cab prerunner. whether i do or not, im going to do the front end to race spec. my question is what sort of travel numbers are you looking at with that setup? i see your keeping to an 8inch shock...no intentions to go with a 10 inch and go through the top of the bucket? To my knowledge its the only way to reach the allowble 12 inches of travel allowed. just food for thought...

awesome build though, super inspiring.

That's a pic of the truck we now own. Ted from Long Beach Racers really built this truck right. Although I know quite a few others helped out too.

This illustrates why 7sx is a tough class to build for. The rulebook reads "Spindles may be of any manufacturer and may be reinforced. Upright or knuckle must remain stock." That upright is clearly modified, but I guess it falls under the "spindle" part of that statement so it's ok.

The restrictions listed in the SCORE rulebook don't appear to mesh with the equipment people are running. It seems that if you build by the rules, you're at a disadvantage compared to your competitors.

Creative interpretation is definitely helpful. ;)

Nice pile of parts. Do you think you will have it racing in 2011?


I still cant understand why people build Rhinos but that is another story. Its other peoples money so eh.

Damn that looks like itll be a sweet setup! Whats the little black rectangular piece with a knob on it? And is the gray box for tuning or codes or what?
The black box with the knob is for adjusting the rich or lean mixture and the grey box is for all the tuning parameters, there is alot of tuning options with this setup. i've just about got the whole truck wired up just waiting on my fuel cell and then I can start it up and see how this system works.
