Baja Prep: Fuel Cell

Baja Prep: Fuel Cell

Every design element of the car has been re-evaluated, and yes, that means this is a LOT of work to figure out new solutions for old problems. One of our problems along the way has been fuel capacity. It sure doesn’t sound that bad when you say your race car has a 150 mile range, […]

Transmission Mounts

It all seems so straight forward when you are sitting comfortably in your house and you see these GPS units and phones and think “how hard could this be!?” but you quickly are introduced to a world without […]

Which springs to use? This is a question we didn’t dig into until it was too late. Back in 2012, we novices built our first Class 11 car from the ground up. We aren’t able to do anything once. Cage, wiring, transaxle, paint… We learned a lot on the way, some stuff we picked out […]
