Definitely! We're going to use Baja Pits for A/B but our set up in Main shouldn't be too hard to find. Hope to catch you out there!

Some of that desert dust looks as hard to see threw as Hawaii rain.

I like this truck.

Nice footage! I don't follow desert raging anymore but man it seems like you run a bit more ground clearance than most, do you? Doesn't really matter, looks like the truck handles pretty fantastic. Nice job.

We do sit tall compared to current desert truck trends but those are literally just trends of mostly trucks that play in the desert and don't race. The thing is, we race on courses now where the trophy trucks are running up to 42" tires. Those leave DEEP grooves/tire ruts. For a small truck like ours to get thru, we need as much clearance as we can. Granted, the diff is still going to only have so much clearance but still, I'd rather drag only the diff and not the crossmembers as well. Also, I personally like a truck with a lot of up travel. Our class rules involve frame rails and there's only so much you can do to gain up travel that doesn't involve sitting tall. So yeah, I guess we sit kind of tall but then again, most leaf sprung true race trucks do for those same reasons. If you want to just look cool, sit it low and wide. Chance are though our tall sitting truck will out perform that cool looking truck. LOL
