My favorite because I built it. Old beater from 2005 has given me many smiles. Life and two businesses have been in the way and I need to get back out there. Only two trips last season. Just put new injectors in it and need to get it on the dyno. Maybe early 2024 I can get back in the sand.

Great photo. Looks like a beast of a sand rail. What does the Star Wars looking droid in the back do?

That's an onboard smoker. Dune all day and dinners ready by Sunset. He's a hit at the ledge. :classic_ninja:

Custom air box with a 6x11 CBM filter inside. Centri tractor industrial precleaner on top. Billet aluminum plates top and bottom. Tube is 10" .120 wall plastic drain pipe for light weight.  Took me about 50 hours to build it. 3 burp valves at the bottom to drain the sand. 

If my V6 is at 7000 rpm the 4 blade in the precleaner would be spinning at 4000 rpm spitting out sand before it can get to the filter. 

 

Different design that is plastic but shows how it works.

Pretty sure Mike's car was originally Gary's from C&G, red, white and blue with big C&G beadlock rings. My client Ramiro bought it, then Mike bought it.

My understanding is Tyler got it from Clay, then tyler sold it and ramiro had it and changed it up then his homie took it over then Mike bought it last year.
