Who thinks we can make it 300 miles in the desert piloting a rock buggy? I don't care, because we're going to try anyways. :p

We'll be starting 5th of 15ish trucks. All desert. I hit a GPS 85MPH testing, should get closer to triple digits now that the shocks are tuned better. Thanks to BajaNorth for that.

We leave Wednesday, race Saturday.
More info here.

I think your biggest worry will be running out of gas. ;)

Just make sure you double check those link bolts :clown

I bought him all new ones and made him change them.

We'll be cutting it close, but should be alright on the fuel. Only 60 miles between the longest pits. Yep, I finished changed every suspension bolt. Found 2 bent ones. Don't forget to grab Chris' go pro or whatever he has.

Turns out we got like 20 MPG, I guess that's what happens when you just drive in 3rd. Could have gone 100 miles on a tank easily.

It took us a while to get the article up (sorry Warners) but better late than never. Check it out everyone it's a very entertaining read.
