Hello.

Is anybody from this forum there?
A guy from Germany starts from position #12.

He has one of the best Jeep parts and modification companies in Europe. But he built it in the US together with his partner company ** Jimmy's 4x4.

I was going to say, that is a Jimmy's 4x4 rig, easily noticeable.

I know Todd McCullen (Desert Fab Racing) and he's one of the racers this year. He lost out last year in the Last Chance Qualifier. But I'm hoping the guys from Carnage Crew in CO make a good enough time in the LCQ to race. They're rig still looked like this on Feb 2nd.

That sounds good.

I´m a bit confused that no user of this forum is there. There are so many members from CA...

Here is their build thread on Pirate... the attention to detail on a lot of the small stuff is amazing. Check out the upper shock mounts, trailing arms, and the cross brace in the front of the buggy.

That looks like some good work.

I can only see one "problem".
Is the tie rod still that low in front of the front axle?
I would put it in the rear of the axle like on a Mercedes G or Unimog.

My boss is there somewhere. Look for a yellow 4 door with big Bestop stickers. And tell him that his employee is back at the office, drinking. Cheers!

That is just a temp tie-rod to keep the wheels in line. It was removed when the tie-rods on the hydraulic steering were installed.

Also - You should buy the DVD's Nico. I have the first one and still need to get the second one.

Yay! Jason and Aaron made it to JV! Check out their rig. Dual-rate coil overs at each corner with double by-pass shocks in the front and triple by-pass shocks in the rear. Got word that KING adjusted the shocks for them and they did a test run through the whoops @ ~60MPH. GO GETTEM' BOYS!

Watching live feed and getting words from friends, sounds like Jason & Aaron with Team Carnage Crew are placing somewhere in the top 10! Still have to wait for an official time though.

Congrats on finishing guys!
