F-Toy #38

I picked up Chassis #38 From Vortec_Cruiser today. Thanks again

I pretty much have all the parts on my current ride. But I'm sure a lot of new stuff will come up.

Heres my old rig, soon to be the parts truck.



The new doner truck I got from a friend. Thanks Adam!



And the Hendrix Chassis.

Hey, that looks like my chassis... Oh, that's right, I sold it this morning. But it did get a good home. For me, the bright side to this story is that I will be ordering a new Formula Four chassis this week.

Thanks! I'm looking forward to it.

Desertoy,
Yeah, I plan to post the build. It's going to be a bit of a slow start. I'm going on one more trip with the old rig Memorial day weekend.

Vortec_Cruiser had it outside for a while near Loma Linda (I think). He primed it to keep it from rusting.
It'll never rust here in Tucson.

Dunno, I see em.

Some of the easy stuff is done, everything is off the frame. That cab was a bitch to get off by myself.
If anyone wants any of that stuff, come and get it, otherwise it's going to the dump this weekend. The motor is a 20r and doesen't run, but its free.

I take it you know Jody. He's been talking about chopping that thing and extending it for while. What do you want to bet that I'll be done with this F-toy first?

I'm sure I'll make a few comps. I would say anything (F-toy) within about a 10hr drive. I'm hoping (like every one else here) that this Formuls Toy thing takes off. I can't see why more people won't jump on board when they see how cheap they can compete, and have a lot of fun.

Yes, I know Jody and I know you. Think of ATS Southwest. I saw your old truck when you first bought it! I talked to Yoda the other day and he told me that he had already started chopping his heep..... Funny some things never change. Good luck with the F-Toy looks like it is going to be fun! I just started on the sheetmetal with my buggy, it's a pain, well not really just time consumeing. Think ahead when you are starting yours, I did alot of figureing before I started just to make the sheetmetal easy. Plan ahead it will make life easy in the future. Good Luck, Jason

I got started tearing down my trail rig. It's almost kinda hard to do. I got a lot of work in this thing.
Kinda forgot how long the entire motor, bellhousing, tranny, range box, adaptor, T-case assy is. If your going to yank it out as one piece, make sure your cherry picker can lift it high enough. It's a real bitch to try to reposition after it's off the mounts.

My garage is starting to look like a junkyard....

Is this rats nest really necessary? Down the road a ways I'll be looking for some advise as to what I can get rid of.

If you get the GM one wire alt. you can cut the wires down on the 22r to 3 IIRC, there is a nice thread on it in the truck forum.

I had to bail out on the trip. Between starting a new job a couple weeks ago, buying the F-toy chassis and going to get it, being out of town for work reasons. I just have too much going on, and a little short on funds.
And, I want to get going on this. I'm going to try to make the September event in So-Cal. Sept seems like a long ways off, but the time willl go by quick.

If I can get it done, I'll be looking for a spotter!!!
