    Here's one more option. They have a new powder coat called "Lava Grip" If your powder guy won't get it or can't, give me a shout and I'll hook you up.

    I would think just a small hole and a screw in barbed fitting, then some 5200 marine adhesive would keep it in there forever.

    So here’s the story 13 years later. I still own the car and have made 5-7 trips every season since we built it. I started with a Turnkey 450 hp LS changed, to a 550 hp after 2 seasons. That motor blew up but Turnkey made it right with a refund. I put an FRE Zilla compression motor in to follow that. It hit 826 hp on the dinoThat motor is in the car today and is now tuned for e-54. Through all of this the Albins has been the one constant. I’ve replaced the 2 gear sincro once and that’s it. I’ve been through too many CV’s to count, a few cracks in the frame and lots of other minor issues that you expect, but the that tranny had been awesome. If you’re thinking about a build or buying a used car you won’t be disappointed if you get an Albins.

    I love this pic^^^^^ I like how the rear end bars and lights came out . Super strong too! This bellhousing is custom made and only made three of them (for the sequential trans) I do still make this for the 2d and pbs sequential. This allows the Subaru motor to mate directly with the tranny and no adapter plate

    None of the above. All are very heavy tires. 30" tire would be fine. It can run 32" tires, but you might have to mess with you clutch. Although I have friends running 32" paddle tire set ups on the stock clutch for a 17 XPT. What is your budget? If you want to stay with a 14" wheel then a 30" set up. The CST Sandblast set up in the best of the budget tires. They perform as well as the STU Sandblaster set and a fraction of the price. After that a Skat set up would work well. I would avoid the Sand Slingers, Sand Drifters and those type of tires. The paddle profiles are not great on them. If you go to a 15" wheel your choices get better as far as size and type. STU Paddla 1300 (30" tire) with the desert trac front tire is pretty nice. STU Blackbird is a heavy tire (31"), but work. The new Fullerton tire is also really heavy. 32" CST tire weight wise is not bad. After driving around on the Sandcraft Skats this weekend, I am sold on this set up. The tire profile and the front tires with the center rib performed awesome. They make a 31" tire that would work great on your RZR, but you need to go to a 15" wheel. They can tell you how many paddles you will need for your car and hp.

    Ok here we go! Devin, first I was in no way “slamming” Polaris. And in fact I do appreciate that they’re investing in the dunes by purchasing the store. Second, even if I was slamming them I don’t see how that makes me or anyone else “hypocritical.” Third, now that you’ve opened this can of worms. My first trip to Glamis was memorial weekend in 1974. Yes, 1974. I have seen the changes over the years and perhaps I long for the old days when the place was waaay more laid back. No overzealous rangers, smaller crowds and less rude ass campers. So with that being said, I remember watching Crusty Demons of Dirt in 1995 (on a VHS tape no less) and the guys were at the “trendy dunes,” and even THEN I was like oh shit here we go, this place is going to blow up. Then there were the party’s at the pit (competition hill) where assholes were digging trenches so you would wreck or get stuck, burning OHVs to the ground and it was one big effing mess til the law clamped down. So if anyone ever wonders why there’s such a HUGE presence of LEOs and BLM at the dunes this is one of the main reasons. Since you didn’t ask, my opinion on camp rzr? It’s awesome that they display the vehicles and offer test drives and will repair your cart on the spot. But. Live concerts, a big party and a a fireworks display? If I wanted that shit I’d just stay home and go to Disneyland. I go to the dunes to escape that crap and in fact refuse to bring a tv along. This type of event brings in non-duners that makes the CAMPING turn into the shit show as I referenced with that image. Some of those people dgaf and trash the place leaving it to the folks that are truly passionate about the dunes (dare I say LOVE the place) to clean up after them. Many people enjoy the event, it just ain’t for me. There was a day when guys built their own sand cars, and the only thing to finance was ATCs/odysseys/dirt bikes. Now anybody with a few thousand dollars down can get into a cart with amazing long travel suspension and an automatic (gasp!) trans. Easy to drive and easy to wreck. I think they’re awesome and will buy a Textron XX 4 seater when they release them. I’m just not a fan of the commercialization of Glamis, but there’s no stopping it. Now get off my lawn!

    You've already brought it up so you know its in your mind. I think it will bother you every time you look at it and say "what if it didn't have that seam?" I say no seam like 99% of all the other sand cars. It does look good otherwise though!
