Thing Motorsports Testing- Plaster City

We went out for the day to test out the truck before the Baja 250. Thanks to Andrew and Kevin for shooting the video and Erik at Flatwheel productions for editing it!

ya i revalved it again after this video. took all the remaining rebound dampning out of the front and took some out of the rear. also changed from a traditional valving stack in the rear to a rate plate (like the front is now) and took a couple thousandths out of the rate plate in the front.

What an asshole!

You'd probably complain about something as small as pink pin stripe on a sweet jeep too!

I thought Kristen wanted pin striping on her jeep? We've been over this before.

Wow, that looks like fun. Looks like the truck is working well. If you happen to know, can I get a ballpark on sprung weight, spring rates and motion ratio in the rear?
Trying to get a feel for the long travel setups, most of the tech on here is 1:1 MR, mounted at the axle type aplications.
