    My number 1 piece of advice is that a sandrail is not a 1 time upfront cost. You WILL incur significant up keep costs in any car that you own. This up keep cost increases EXPONENTIALLY with every 5 HP you add to the car. With what you have said about wanting to hit the whoops at 90 you must factor this into your decision. There isn't a car made by man that can take that pounding over and over without upkeep and maintenance. With all this said, be warned this can turn into an addiction to which there is no cure.

    With President’s weekend fast approaching I figured I better get my lights hooked up for some night rides in Glamis. I was originally going to have a bumper built to put lights on it. The custom bumper plan was cutting it to close, so I ended up getting the Can Am dune bumper (Bert's Mega Mall had a sale this weekend on parts so I took advantage). Glad I want this route as it is a nice bumper and has plenty of room for lights. The bumper also comes with a new bulkhead that seems to be a little beefier than the stock X3 bulkhead. This time around I did not want to run a light bar. I had one on my XP and it was great. Lightbars tend to reflect the dust and sand too much, if you are not leading the ride. I knew for sure I was going with Baja Designs for my lights. I had them on my last car and in my opinion they are the best on the market. A called over to Baja Designs and they helped me figure out the best lighting for what I like to do (night rides in Glamis). I ended up with Squadron Pros with the driver combo on the A pillar and a pair for XL80s for the bumper. The XL80s are currently driving combo, but I will switch out the lense on one to make it a spot. I also used Baja Designs’ wiring harnesses to make wiring easier for me (I hate wiring).Wiring was not too bad, but putting on the new bumper required some work. Can Am makes nothing easy to work on and putting on the bumper was no exception. The new bumper comes with a new bulkhead and that means you have to remove all the front plastics to make it easier. Actually I as not as bad as thought. About 10-12 screws and it came right off. I found a great video on youtube on those to remove the front clip in one piece. Can't wait for the night rides as I will be able to see much better.

    I would figure in about 20% on top of the purchase price in upgrades you’re inevitably going to want to do. Therefore, if your all in budget is $50k, look for a car that is around $42k. Good luck with the search and welcome to the sickness!

    No problem...didn't read the specifics, just looked at the pron..err..pictures, and remembered this post. If I find anything else, I'll certainly share.

    Much respect to those who can sit at a desk all day and work with customers, computers, designs, engineer, etc. An office nearly killed me. Went to college to be an electrical engineer. Hated every fvxk!ng minute of being in an office. Learned a lot about fiber optics and light, electricity, magnetism, but christ almighty I hated customers and people.

    Speaking of staring at a computer screen.....................Anyone got a shovel? Peace

    Maybe so, but its still a kick in the ass doing stuff like this. Riding a chopper skid doing aerial work is by far the biggest kick I have had in my career. Sitting in an office staring at a computer screen all day would have put me in a grave 20 years ago. Eff that crap.

    Here’s me in the lead, trail braking into T1 at Autobahn Raceway in Chicago area at the SERCA National Convention. Spec Rental class. Our car club would rent a track for our national convention. The locals drove their cars in, the far flung folks flew in and rented. We ALL brought helmets and the Rental session was by far the most interesting. Superior rental company maintenance? Bwahahahahaha. I once rented a Chevy Malibu (Malibutaaaay) in Los Angeles, drove it nonstop at nearly 100mph to Austin, TX, flogged it mercilessly all day long at Texas World Speedway, then drove it back. I put over 3000 miles on that poor car. Prior to leaving, I told the rental company that I was driving to TX and back and that they should perform all maintenance due in the next 3000 miles. When I got into it, the OCI indicator said 10% remaining. NMFP: drove it away. In short: run. Run far far away. Those intro models are especially flogged, as that’s what most people who don’t rent often end up with. The nice cars are generally rented by older people, or guys like me who travel a lot and have amazingly tired of abusing rentals for no reason.

    See if you can get the rental history on the car you like, if Bababouy, IS, TLL, TD, Orange R... or Crusty show up on the log, RUN! If Off Road Ryan shows up then buy it, that nozzle hasn't been offroad or over 60MPH in his life.

    I went the cheap route and bought steel shelving from Costco since I have a bunch of heavy crap and then built doors around them. The Work bench is a steel shelf with a plywood top. Ghetto fabulous.

    Thanks! Yeah it's just to get into them to adjust the doors and whatnot. I've found drilling the pulls last gives everything time to settle in.

    I own a dually, 2007 Chevy. I owned a cr3905 for about a week, towed it from Az to Cali. As soon as the legs were off the ground the truck was already on the overload 'spring' (leaf). It squatted my truck and it was empty. No water, toys, dishes, bedding, beer, nothing. I have no idea how peeps tow with a 3/4 ton and say 'Its like its not even back there' 'I get 20 mpg' 'Go up the grade at 65' etc. My dually has a 23,500lb rating - newer Chevys are rated for more. I cringe when I look at Nick's set up (dunerdude). No offense brother! I know you towed that combo w/o incident and so have a lot of other people. Buy as much truck as you can and add the trailer accordingly.

    i'd like to see a vid to show how it all works because I have a custom mount on my car so it will matter to me if it works or not.

    Good point. Maybe I should do a video detailing how it works. It is very similar to a push button air chuck, if you are familiar with those. The whip has a push button on the side and when pushed allows the "chuck" design to release the base. You will notice that the base has a groove in the bottom where the whips internals engage on to. This design has been out for some time now. I have been running a standard whip with this design and then switched to the HD whip with this design at the beginning of the season. It works well! I will try to make a video here in the next couple of days.
