    Just out of curiosity, has anyone built a road racing truck or similar style out of say a 2WD regular cab short box?

    I've always wanted a truck like that, I was just curious if anyone's done it.

    You'd have better luck on xr-underground for that sort of stuff.

    LOL yeah. I'm not really sure what venue you could race it in. Probably better off with something in the car class.

    I'd love to get into racing some day. Sure is expensive, though.

    ^ No. We're too big. TW is all you need to know. XR-U is underground for a small community of trucks that well. . . are trucks that get the same clearance as my boss's Prius.

    You'll find plenty of super fast lowered XR. They have some real clean ones over there and makes you want to drool. ​
