Oh yeah, btw congrats!!
Thanks for the grats.

I've never done any 4 wheeled off-road or desert racing. We'll be driving in some sort of spec buggy class.

Info on the car here ---> The Car

Tube frame buggy, 18" of suspension travel, 175hp N/A Subaru 4 cyl, 4spd MT

It's no trophy truck, but you won't hear me complaining.

I'll be getting on a plane in a few short hours to fly out to San Diego, then down to Ensenada for a week of BAJA pre-running. I'll try to take some video for you guys.

Also, SpeedcastTV has the race replay up for the SSB/SSC national championship race for anyone who's interested and missed it live. I think the current one is slightly edited, and it's available in "decent" quality.

Can be seen here ----> SpeedcastTV

Cheers and I hope I live through a week of BAJA practice...

Baja is a hoot, my cousins race and I've gone down to pit for them a few times. Enjoy it!

Quick update from Pre-running: BAJA is freaking crazy. This sh+t is 90% retarded crazy and 10% amazing.
Unfortunately we've had some reliability problems and generally each day has been a new sort of
disaster.

We killed a cow today...

That it's all

Getting on a plane right now to head to San Diego and then on to Ensenada..

Race starts Thursday, or car should leave the start about 1pm.

Coverage of the race and tracking can be seen at: race-dezert..com, racetheworld.net as well as Bfgoodrichtires.com and score_international.com

Check out BFG's and Score's Facebook pages for updates.

I'm in car "BC2", should be registered under "Bud Brutsman" (producer of Overhaulin and Rides, etc)

Cheers!
