Pulled the nice aluminum rock crawler style tank to put the big red bladder cell in, and of course nothing just fits in nicely. Had to cut out the rear shock towers and two upright tubes. So I had to call in my grinding specalist

As for cooling, we will pull the winch out and use a different style fan and shroud combo on the rear of the radiator, and maybe some ducting. This is the way it is now...

Sam is , if you want a real NC connection rooting for you...I am it!!!



Talking shit is fun!! In case you and Trout didnt read my other post, our thing is to send other teams we know (4400 in this case) the when passing or being passed. i would expect nothing less from our fellow Ultra 4 competitors!!

As a contingency prize, I will give the car who sends us the pirate salute the most a t-shirt,sticker and coozie!!!

Fear not, we WILL be keeping track!!

Rob

Alright so not to much new to report. Got some stuff today from poly, coilover pieces and hood pins. Also got a intercom from Rugged Radios too. Got all ne hardware from allensfastners.com so changed all the hardware out to F911 stuff instead of grade 8. Trout got a basket made up for the cell and the remote fill mounted. Also he finished the shroud on the radiator and mounted the new 3000 cfm fan. I also have been worrying about light at night so the guys over at MFS, (mfs-ca.com) hooked me up with a sweet Vision X LED light bar for the front. They carry all the visionX stuff at great prices.

Yeah I am sure you will be going slow enough to tally the cars flipping you off with a pen and notepad




But of course if for some reason we catch you, you will get the salute, I expect nothing less from anyone else!
