I took my buggy to Wales last week. Farmers locking gates on a public highway is a big no-no! I wish I'd taken some bolt cutters!




I managed to get stuck in snow - I thought, until it was too late, I could get through it.




A nearby gatepost came to the rescue!




Rewarded with some spectacular sights - this the Craig Goch Dam in Powys, Wales - in full flood at this time of year. This reservoir is one of a number in this area that supplies Birmingham, some 75 miles away.

Race number one under our belt. The only issue with the car was the launch control failed at starting line. The transmission was in first gear, pulled to the line, pulled the paddles then reved the engine and nothing happed when paddles were released. I had to put the car in reverse then back in drive before the car would move. I won't make that mistake again!
I used the "Agressive" shock settings recommended by Fox which still left a little too much kick in the back even with the spare and tools back there. Sooo, I backed off 1" on the rear springs pre-load and put crossover at 3 7/8". That took care of the kicking issue but felt too soft in the rear. The back end tended to walk side to side in the whoops limiting speed to less than adequate to out pace the first place finisher. Any and all suggestions appreciated. FYI, the camera angle makes the whoops look quite a bit smaller than they actually were.

That looks like a good time, defintely a lot less busy than what l'm use to. You'd prolly like driving on our terrain too.

Getting ready for my big Arizona trip in November. Need some extra range, so I built this tank out of 1/8" scrap that I had. Works out to 4 gallons capacity. I'll be mounting it to my custom toolbox / secondary radiator box.

I want to put a plug in for Boyd Welding of Florida. Bought the filler neck, cap and weld in bung from them. Nice pieces for reasonable price.
