Hey guys my name is mike from Spokane WA, I haven't got a solid YES from anyone to be my co-driver yet so ill be sure to introduce him/her when i have one. I will also have an official team name when i get all my final sponsors.
A little about myself, I'm 22 originally from kennewick WA, but moved up here to Spokane about a two years ago. Ive been into the off road scene since i was 14, building baja bugs and sandrails. I built my first crawler at the age of 16, it was a 93 ford ranger (standard 44front 9'rear, and a doubler).
Last year i bought a samauri buggy chassis, and built it.
Specs are passenger side drop HP ford 60 stuffed with 5:13s a detroit and 35spl chromos.
a welded 9' in the rear, 3 link front, inverted 4link rear. etc.
My race rig will be a 1986 samauri that i built in the winter of 2008 for the W.E. rock stock modified class.
Specs on it are toyota axles f/R both with toyota e-lockers, 4:10s, yj springs, 6:5 t-case gears, driveline disconnect, etc, etc.
Things that i will be changing will be, lose the driveline disconnect (just one more thing to break, that will not be needed), Change out the missing link front shackle for a standard shackle, more tube and gussets on the cage, and relocate the shocks f/r. Replace the plastic bucket seats with suspension seats. I'm sure that theres alot more that needs to be done but thats the start of the list.
