The ability to simply bring the buggy down to complete my shopping is a great idea though and a hell of a offer. Always impressed and happy with what you guys have in stock.

Wow, I love the cardoor-close-line-take-down-thing. Last time I saw it was on Burn Notice.

Good Work Guys(and girls)! I've caught theives in the act before and gave a small beat down before the cops got there. They freaking loved it and told me they wished they could do stuff like that!

What a crazy day Sunday was at SDHQ! Heading home from the shop Sunday we come across our 44’ vendor trailer hooked up to our Superduty shop truck parked in a residential area. Gilbet PD was called and they showed up in a matter of minutes. The trailer was ransacked and tons of our race supplies were stolen. The cops finger printed and took pictures before heading back to the shop to check out our video surveillance. Once that was handled we headed back to the truck & trailer to bring it back to the shop.


Here is where it gets good…

Rolling back into the residential area we spot a Scion TC coupe with it hood opened attempting to jump start the shop truck. We roll up in the chase truck and box them in between the front of the shop truck and the passenger side of the chase truck. They scramble to get back into their Scion and then gunned it in reverse into the chase truck, forward into the shop truck and around onto the grass between the shop truck / trailer and the fencing of a house. Once they are on the grass they tear through a mail box, a speed limit sign and a Cox cable electrical box. I whip the chase truck around and do my best impression of a desert racer though a dirt field, thanks to the Icon Vehicle Dynamics suspension for soaking up the ruff stuff! The Scion makes it about 50 feet to the street intersection before they realize they are no match for the chase truck, and they still have the Cox box wedged beneath their car… They hop out of their car and start booking it down Elliot Road. The driver of the car ran right out of her sandals and ended up getting picked up by a good Samaritan who had no idea what was going on. A quick 20' foot chase went down until Ryan realized he would probably have to take a few hits of his asthma inhaler before he caught the guy. Ryan hopped back in the chase truck and headed down the wrong side of the street on the sidewalk chasing after the guy. We made it a good 100 yards before Ryan looked over at Kyle & Serena and said “watch this” (He has seen way to many action flicks), he flings the drivers side door open knocking the guy into the brick wall he was running next to and he jumps out of the chase truck onto him. He has him pinned against the fence, Kyle is on the phone with 911 explaining what is going down and Serena is hoping out of the truck with an extension cord. Luckily the cops showed up to save the guy before Serena had a chance to hog tie his ass. It was the same officer that had helped us earlier in the day so he had an idea of what was going down, he had the biggest grin on his face as he hoped out of his cruiser! The good Samaritan who had helped the girl, who he thought was in the middle of a domestic violence situation, swung back by and let the cops know that he had dropped her off at the CVS down the street. While at the CVS she did a little shopping for some new shoes and a hoodie! The cops picked her up right away and in jail she sits along with the other thief.

We found the bad guys mug shots.. We will upload them shortly along with all the other “action” shots!

Look up the bad guys that are caught and find their Facebook, maybe you can look through their friends list to see the 3rd guys name that got away.. Or post a wanted add "looking for a few like new or brand new go pro cameras for a personal movie project" on Craigslist..
