The Scout is out!

With only weeks left until the event.  The Scout has sadly passed.  On a recent trip up Aspen Mountain the transmission shit the bed.  I was having high hopes for the Scout but it just couldn’t handle the steep hills of Colorado.  I lost all forward gears on this beauty.  She still runs like a […]

Race Line RT232 Beed lock wheels

These are great wheels that are both functional and add a good bling factor. At only 42 pounds apiece these things are practically feather weights.
