Sounds awesome..always wanted to do something like that..no experience, cept haulin arse in the desert...but if you want looney, todd's your man...haha, he'll go fast and not care about breakin things!!! whoot flyin121!
Sometimes that is what it takes to win, but this race is more a race of logistics. Getting spare parts to the car when it breaks is extremely important. Sometimes, having your fastest drivers on the hiway, hauling parts, is what wins the race. A couple years ago or so, Bipolar Racing lost first place by like 15 minutes I think it was, because they were broken down (fuel system problems). I don't know if parts would've helped them, but maybe.
Troy, are you out there, you have experience running chase for BP Racing on this course.
The car is running an oversize CBR Radiator/Oil Cooler with a Spal fan, so it should keep the engine cool enough. The fuel system is plumbed to minimize vapor locks or any delivery problem hopefully. So as long as we don't have internal engine problems, diff or axle problems, we should be good. The belt is an EPI Severe Duty Kevlar Belt. The cooling for the belt drive system is pressurized via hood scoop.
The course has lots of high speed fireroads and isn't near as rough as some other courses. So breakage shouldn't be as bad....
Todd, are you going to be available during this timeframe? I can probably get another pilot (private jet and stunt), to ride with you...LOL. That way you feel at home...
Seth, you care to get on board?
Remember, we have to make a good showing with Arctic Cat, everyone will be watching this car and race to see what happens. Side betting is pitting us against Jagged X's super built RZR-XP900 (and it's damn fast), Parks Racing RZR (converted 4 that won the SS300) and Mike Lasher's built to the hilt Teryx. Can Am has a couple entries also.... Hey, we are even racing against 2 John Deere Gator XUVs.
Guys, we've got a good chance, lets go kick some butt....
