They work ok how they are but I would cut some pins for some extra bite.

Another new lid. I think you enjoy the painting more than anything else. Personally, with my big thumbs and poor eyesight, it's a chore for me.

Anyway, good luck at World's. 5th Dimension is definitely going to be well represented this year.

Bad day for me, finished 34th out of 41, broke 2 driveshafts on the first two courses and then my radio decided to shut down on the last course. It was 110* today not counting the heat from the rocks radiating more of it. Hope tomorrow goes better for pro.

New style, only broke the front with my super short driveshaft. I think the heat basically made the plastic so soft that it wasn't going to last no matter what.

That was a great place, Chris, well worth the 4hrs to get there.
If you look at the last two pics, you'd not believe it was the same area...totally different rock formations.

Congrats on the win.

Time for some well over due maintenance and a few new parts. The front plastic housing finally wore out so it got rebuilt and greased along with regreasing and making sure the rear axle was still in good shape. Took out the tranny to inspect and grease that, looks just like new with zero maintenance done to that since I bought it years ago! So onto the chassis, I found some translucent gold G10 and decided it would be a perfect match to my car, added some side braces in CF while I was at it. Gold G10 looks so good I had to make some 24 spoke Daytons for wheels. Still need to make a new electronics mount and another battery mount and then she'll be ready for another year .

I believe the 1st Sucker Punch chassis was cut from CF. I'll find a picture.
