    Those Moss boys are tough competition. Here's to hoping y'all can whup up on 'em a little bit. Of course I feel sort of bad since I've got a pic of that Bronco hung up above my work desk. Maybe I can get a pic of your K-5 to put up next to it:D

    "watch for some strong competition from the Chris Raffo/Stephen Watson solid-axle K5 blazer"

    So THAT'S what Stephen's been up to....

    Desert racing is VERY addicting---and about 50 times more difficult/harsher/demanding/etc than crawling.

    I tell you what my next personal project is a "go fast"

    chevy fullsize 2wd stepside, long travel front, 4 link rear, happy 350----OH YEAH!!!

    good luck guys

    The truck is currently in San Diego, but normally it would be in the Merced area. I used to tow it back and forth between Ill. and Baja, but I have partnered with a friend of mine in California.

    The truck is being modified by Baja Blazer. We are adding new front springs from Deaver that are 3" longer behind the axle and 17" stroke shocks. Last race we added a set of new aluminum heads that were massaged by Dennis Chencharick at D&L Automotive in PA. They really woke the motor up. It's fun to drive.
