Looking for a truck to build a stock mini for LOORs regiional

Anyone have anything they want hauled away? I am in Temecula out side of San Diego and plan to build a truck for Glen Helen next season.

I don't have a truck to give away but, I know of 4 trucks being built for next season. My buddy is all fired up to build one, as well. I think if all the trucks that are supposely being built are finished, next season should be have a big turn out.

There's some new ones out there in the ASCC lucas regional but not many. Honestly they don't look that fun to drive. It is kind of cool to see the SDHQ/Hellion rivalry out there and I really do hope this turns into a builder's class.

I thought about building a mini stock but everyone I spoke w/ in AZ regarding this class said to go fullsize. Reason being, gofast parts are cheaper and more available, putting a cage, shocks, electrical, etc. in either will be about a wash on cost.

Both trucks will be fun to drive, both should be economical to operate, full-size might cost a little more to build just because they are wider/longer (more material).

I'd recommend full-size just based on strength of stock parts, easy access to cheap parts, more head/leg room in the cab to work with (safer for occupants also). Downside is the trucks are heavier, wider, taller,etc (make sure it will fit on your trailer and in your garage...)


Here's a link to a full-size 1986 Bronco I built:

One of these days I wlil make a build thread....

Build the first one and you'll be the Godfather of Full stockers in So-Cal. Im sure our guys would come out and play a couple of times next year.

If there were a few trucks, we would cruise out to dice it up with the full size stock trucks.

There's the rulebook for full stock in AZ, which I am sure is subject to change since they're between seasons. You'd need to contact a race coordinator to see how tight the rulebook is followed.

The AZ regional races should release a 2012 schedule soon. This year most of the events were April-Nov. I am hearing good things about the courses for next year!
