  1. Awww Thank You Grease Monkey!!! :rigga:
  2. Can't wait for another adventure! Love the big dunes and Oldsmobile up there!!!
  3. That dune looks really familiar... it that Coral Pink Sand Dunes by chance in Utah?!?!
  4. I did see your car for sale and I questioned on how much it would cost to repair it. Weather I just straightened most of it out and gusseted or cut and replaced it. You must have hit pretty hard when you crashed because my pops literally lawn darted his car to where the tires where still spinning in the air and his cars a 5 seater and not a tweak done to the frame, just sheared the arms near the spindles like they're designed to. Also have the trans gone through with new gears because I'd be running a subi from Outfront and I know I wouldn't go cheap on that... I'm looking at an easy $30k into everything minimum again. What year was the frame built in btw? As of what everyone else is talking about, it sounds like Tech 3 is still around and I might look into having a frame built and building a car over the next year or so. I've actually never rode in a 5 link but I've heard they're really nice, especially being light in a mid-engine. It's a 2006. If you can repair the frame yourself, I think the cost will be minimal. But I'm not a fab guy. I believe the radiator will be the most expensive item to replace, followed by the wing trunk, and then the front wheel. If you are interested, I am willing to negotiate. Although the hit was hard enough to put the car on it's lid, I think me being able walking away without injury is a real life testament to how well the car is built and the very reason I sent Tech 3 builder Gary Peterson the thank you email. If I make it up to Oregon, I'll also buy him a few I've owned a couple of mid-engine 5 link cars, one was a turbo subie, and don't think there is a big difference between them and trailing arm cars as long as both suspensions are set up correctly. Of course others will debate this topic until the cows come home. IMO there are other attributes that are more important than 5 link vs. trailing arm; such as safety, comfort, power to weight ratio, etc. I definitely hear you on that last part, that's why I compared it to my dads crash, but what type of steel was the frame made from? As of suspension I really don't know much about 5-links so before buying a car I just wanted some input on other peoples cars, what they like and dislike. Thank you for all the help and information, I'm going to send Gary an e-mail right now and ask him more questions on his cars.

  6. I really like the look of Tech 3's, how light and nimble they look with a Mendi and turboed motor. Especially a mid-engine 5-link. I was wondering who makes them and if they're still around?! What do other people thing about them on the quality of the build as for the type of metal used, weld job, suspension geometry and design of them.
  7. Wish I could make it pops, but duty calls and I'm headed to Texas for leave on the 30th till the 6th Have a safe trip, I know I'll hear all about what I missed when I get back. -Tootles
  8. HOOYAA Navy Vet. representing!!! I'm coming up on my 1 1/2 year mark, loving it so far. I do wish I could of been there for the tear down, but hopefully make more trips back home for the rebuild... Can't wait for the season to start
  9. I had a Losi 8T PRO and it was awesome with a Jammin .28 but I heard the 2.0 is better now
  10. I wonder how long it took them to make this video after eating it so much... haha
  11. That was really gnarly... I especially liked the wrangler tires on the trailer!!!
  12. From the ad it said he put the air dog brand fuel filter/pump water separator?!?! Filters better and supposed to be the fix?!?! I'll have to look into recalls too maybe
  13. Don't some people usually change it out to a straight pipe? Or is that just on the older diesels? Also does an '03 still need to be smogged because I think my friend had an issue with his '01 about being grandfathers or something.
