Need to know basis? Huh? I'm with Eddie...SPEW IT!

Seriously, if you are building, or thinking about building, a buggy let's talk. Remember Bill I AM local!

John, Maybe the Hammers v.s. CC deserves it's own thread. The biggest issue IMO is going to be KOH and whether or not we want to be in front of it (not best imo) or during w/wheeling afterwards (best case). I'm too lazy to look up when the KOH is this year...Anybody?

Regardless of when, I'm super stoked to hit the hammers. Honestly I dont' care when.

The only problem I see with wheeling after the KOH is we will all think 50+ mph through the whoops is 'normal'!

By my calc's we're only 3.5 months away from HAMMER TIME! Better get those details worked out before (speaking to myself more than anyone!).

Lets just say, its a Lowbuck approach to embarrassing all you guys when it counts

And as far as the Hammers goes - I didn't get a week of vacation in the early spring so I likely cant make it. I will be takin a few days off work to head to CC (as that is essentially local for me).

I might post some teaser pictures soon

That or Matt put a bug in his ear about a RockRR...possibly a Zuk would be my guess.

The toy does rule in Cruces so that would make sense.

Either way this post needs pics! I say save your money and get that mog axle fixed and wheel the rover, there aren't many places you can't go in that rig.
