So simple it hurts. Thing looks great. Think chassis flex and the solid mounted drivetrain will be an issue?

Its cool to see a tube rig that actually resembles a vehicle and isnt a moon buggy.

Jessie has come a long way from his big orange toyota he built in his moms garage. I remember all us local guys stopping buy and checking it out. We had never seen any thing that clean or nice. He ended up taking that truck to the Top Truck Challenge. Looking good Jess, glad your doing well.

I'm pretty sure that Jesse has been solid mounting his drivetrains since he started competing. I think his finishes speaks for itself!

Rig looks simple, I like that Jesse is one of the top finishers who always seems to "do more with less"

I need to call you about shafts, but I've had a hard time getting my parts together making measuring for the shafts almost impossible. If you can build them in time that would be awesome. If not, I can throw some miscelaneous used parts in there for now to get me through the first comp.

Mike forgot to mention that the buggy needs to be done in 9 days and some of those pictures are from today!

Yes, W.E.Rock requires the front bumper to extend pass the front of the tires.
