    Working on getting into it as a participant. Getting the truck ready has been a long, long process, and my location hasn't made things any easier for me. :eek:

    Went to the Baja 1000 this past November to spectate and check out the trucks. Came back realizing that I had a lot more work to do!

    is this it? no more fans in here, if you guys like off-roading and live around california, arizona, nevada, you have to make it out to one race just to try it, its the most bad ass form of racing

    check this video out and watch all the chaos starting in 1:18
