Those are sick shots.

How are those MTR's holding up? A friend of mine has the same ones on order for his ranger.

Not with my sweet cracked head 145k mile OHV of doom... nobody even makes a charger if I wanted to.

The plan is if I don't have a new motor by next years TT race then we're slapping Nitrous on it.

That is Fing sweet!!!

One question though. Do you need the spares and extra gas and what not for proper weight distribution or something? if not you could take all that extra stuff out (since the runs are less than a min and you are in a stadium) which would make for some significant weight savings and may improve your time. Just a thought.

Yes. The truck is set up and ballenced with the weight of the spare tires in the back. The gas can was empty, and the coolers had stuff in them because they made me park my tow rig far away from the pits/staging.

That and the truck would just look goofy without it.

Eh... that's not totally true... you've got to remember that the rear half of the truck was built in the magazine, so I do have sponsors, just no stickers on the truck. And the entry fee was $20 so I handled part.
