Lets have a gtg then. There are a ton of places to crawl, lets get it on bra. Now we know we at least have a small group of like minded idividuals.

Are any of you guys coming up to Mt Wilson on Sunday?

It's only about an hour and a half drive, and will be worth it.

I want to go. I'll do my best to get up for the #2 comp. I have halloween plans already this weekend, but anyway... I have never competed or even crawled with anyone else before so i am excited to go. i also like looking at all the other vehicles. ya know see how other people do things. It's all good.
My latest build is done and I'm driving it alot to get a feel for how it handles. If I get my sh*t together I will try Cowles mnt out SAt or sun

I was just reading turbodocks earlier posts and noticed he has not been anywhere else, so i started thinking the dam at mission trails park. it is a river bed and should be excellent for crawling. I'll go there tomorrow.

The rocks at the dam are very smooth. If you drive through the park look down to left. You can park and walk down. Gates lock at 5.00 i think. I have just looked on a bike so?

looks good.
I see a few small changes coming though.
the axle output's should be level on front and point at tranny in rear(slightly up) and the shocks more vertical and higher on the chassis(lower belly) vert shocks give more stable ride.

All done with my 2.2 rig. Got my new body and I am ready to go. Check updated pic. I will probably have room for one rider for the comp if you can meet me here in Esco. I am also off Thursday and Friday this week if anybody wants to crawl.

Now to work on my scale Rubicon.

I have two TLT's up an running right now. I took the newest one to mission trails dam area saturday.What a beautiful day it was. I got about twenty minutes of crawling in before the left front four bar striped out the plastic end link. it was good for crawling, nice parking lot. and the fathers with their young sons got a real kick out of watching. I took some pics. but can't post them yet.

hey guys, finally found some brazing rod that worked, so i was able to get some brazing done! about another hour or two of work and i will have a working rig It aint pretty but it'll work.

I haven't done any crawlin with anyone else either before, should be a lot of fun.


I want to go out but its a pretty good chance i will be out of town for the next three weekends. One of those weekends will be some 1:1 wheelin' at the hammers though Can't wait to go out and do some crawlin, maybe sometime before friday if everything works out. i'll be posting some more pictures of my rig when i get time.

The Muscle, where are our pics? you can't say you have pics and not show. There's rules against that somewhere on the internet im sure.
