Okay, this is RALLY... erm...i mean REALLY SCARY!!!

BOO!!



YES it finally happened.....we had a huge off at the Oregon Trail National Rally

**click here for photos and story




well?
we're rebuilding
chassis = straight
roll cage= straight
engine = needs a little love but it's good

so, the rebuild begins! :twisted:

engine pulled, rad. core supports cut out of the car
fenders gone... roof... gone... glass... gone...



Here's the donor car i've cut the roof off of...



**click here for more photos, details**

I plan on documenting as much as I can regarding what it takes exactly to rebuild one of these rally machines after an off like that

the rollcage did an amazing job!



More details soon! Thanks again for all of your support

And i'll have you know.....
we were whoopin' arse on many of the cars out there when we went off...!
Setting blazing stage times and having a blast!
still dont know HOW the shunt happened..
but we'll get em next time! Promise! 8)
