    There's two desert racers that hang out in the garage. One drives a Class 3 K5 and the other I beleive runs a Class 8 or maybe even a Trophy Truck.

    circle track, street stock class, don't let street stock fool you, only think left from the factory is the front subframe, and some tin hollowed out tin work. 4 link out back, modded front suspension, 400 horse 353 designed to twist 6500 RPMs all day. Why only 400 horse? try making much more with a 500 2bbl.

    I've drag raced my brother down our street on tractors before just because it was funny. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif Found out that the John Deere 1520 has a slightly higher top speed than the John Deere 1010 /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Did some snowmobile racing this season, nothing real competetive, but it was still a lot of fun. Dirtbike racing has looked like it would be awesome but thats why beyond anything I am capable of. Sounds cool /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    MotoX and maybe Supercross this year. Harescrambles just get plain mean and dangerous through the woods. Same with the ironman races, 8 hours of riding is just too long to be on the bike. Hoping to get my 350 and get started on it for the camaro this weekend. Its going in a 1986 Z28. Hopefully it will be transformed into a mean Pro Street car by the end of the season this year. The only problem will be to get parts to strengthen the T-5 trans in it.Ive heard it's pretty expensive and hard to get parts /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif

    SC dragster, I took 2nd place overall in the local series couple years ago. Haven't raced in a couple years due to growing family. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    have you read the new racerX? there is an article about Ryan Huges racing a GNCC. he said that it was the toughest thing he has ever done. he also said it takes a real man to last the entire 3 hours /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    ive always like desert racing, the only prob there are no deserts in michigan /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif unless you consider Silver Lake sand dunes a desert /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif

    i plan on trying some bracket racing when i get my s10 dome /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif
