It will have 44 boggers all around. Although I will race a small tire class with 39.5 boggers and unlimited class with either cut 44 boggers or paddle tires, depends on the track

Tennis balls act like a coilover shock-- an old arena truck trick.
Final paint will be a satin black

WOW!!! Beautiful rig.
I hope my rigs paint is 1/2 that nice when I'm done. But really how nice does it need to be. In two weeks I will jumping in a mud pit full of red clay and rocks. I just hope I don't turn it over.
Wish me luck!!!

Good luck. With that kinda power I'm sure it will have a hard time keeping the greasy side down.

It needs to be as nice as you can get it.... That way people wont believe you drive it like you do. Thats the way I do mine





BTW when do we get to see some vids???
