We have comps in Brownsburg, right outside of Indianapolis, and down in Clarksville at the Falls of the Ohio.

Come check em out.

Amazing what you set around and think of when waitin on parts,made a $1.00 high lift jack,put a hitch ball on back so figured better make a little trailer to go on back.Just put a new wood floor down in the house,so got a idea for left overs, figure will make a nice deck for the trailer. Will post more pics later.

Talking Good to go.

Well finished up on the electronics and took her to the retaining wall for some testing and was amazed how it crawled right up the block.Got a little tweaking to do and going to add some rings and maybe a roof rack and some other appearence items, but this one is good to go.Now its time to move to the scaler, after my wallet recovers from this one.

Default Just some more pics.

Added a few more things and finally narrowed the pede wheels and wow got a extra 2" of articulation.Decided to finish the little trailer and kinda had fun with that, cant wait to get started on a bonified scaler.I just want to thank RCC for having a great site and to all members who have shared their great ideas. Oh and what good is a offroad vehicle without a good trail dog (Tess the blue heeler)

Love it!!

I miss the days when our comp rigs doubled as scalers.

Oh man seeing those pictures of the SW3, Moabs and a Rubi body makes me want one again... Then I remember how they drove compared to what we have now.

Maybe I will just put a Rubi on my XR10.

Shhhhhhh.
Don't tell anyone, but yes I am using a SW3 right now in my
Sporty comp rig.
It does really well against the body less and other rigs.
It must be the rig, because I sure can't drive.....
I just wish all comp rigs required bodies and then let's see
how they do.
Still have a SWX in a box too, sign by BD himself.

I'm still rock'n an SW2 with Pede tranny and TLT axles. Built it up back when the Fat rock "C"s were new. Good times.
