    Droping the body lift made a big difference, nice and low now...

    Looks good, one day i'd like to try that rock crawl stuff. Problem with Motorsports is there is too many different types of motorsports events to enter!

    Ah, how I love those arrow magnets. They don't work on dang SS though.
