Marcus and I will be doing an overnight test session on April 20-21 at Lucerne Valley. A chance to go camping and tweak the car without the pressure of a race weekend. The actual location has not yet been decided, most likely Soggy Dry Lake off of Bessemer Mine Rd, since that was the main pit last year. We will be giving rides in the car to those who have pit for us in the past or wish to in the future. We ask that you bring a helmet with you. We will also be going over pit procedures and instructions on fighting a fuel fire. Hope you can make it.

Front arms turned out bad ass, very stout. We re-engineered all the lower arm mounts, and upped the size of the heims.
Once we get the alignment dialed in again, it will be rock solid.

Its alive! New front end looks bad ass, can't wait to get it all buttoned up and go have some fun in a month. Hopefully some hoolies will come out and play, it will be fun. We can even do Barstow instead for the convenience factor if that helps....

The front is all done. Just have to re-do the window nets for an easier and faster exit.

Carie and I will be at Soggy Dry Lake around 2:00pm Saturday and stay until around 4:00 pm Sunday. I don't want to take more than one vehicle so I'm waiting for her to get off work.

Spindle failure. Thats what happened when ours snapped at the Mint last year with Aaron driving. That's alot of force on that piece. We now have spair spindles :D

Properly welded and heat treated spindles are expensive. I know they were on my beam car.

Pretty sure I know something about broken spindles

New arms look good. Who built them?

Team Frisby Racing did. I cut the sheet metal for the boxing with the Plasma cutter and Mike did the design and welding in his garage. Here's a video of the first 10 miles of the Lucerne course:

We know it's a shitty weekend for desert camping, but if anyone wants to come out and play, our first race is in 3 weeks in Lucerne. Hang out for the race Sat, then head out to the river sunday - tues !!!!

Due to HDRA changing location and race weekend for the September race, we have decided to race the MORE Chili Cook Off September 7th instead. It's closer and cheaper.

The MORE race is in Lucerne, probably off Camp Rock Road. Hope to see you out there.

Due to the hard rollover at Reno, we are done for the foreseeable future. We still need to determine the extent of the damage and decide what to do.
