steering update

After talking to lance at psc he thought i burned up the pump because the resi was mounted to low, so i shipped them the pump so they could rebuild it. Then i moved the resi up higher so it is a straight shot down into the pump and added a filter. So i guess we will see how long it lasts this weekend, gonna head to bundy for another test beat on sat.

We got a few new events planned for this year. As far as new obstacles or trails we are aways doing something new. I was actually gonna talk with Mike ( Bundy Owner ) this weekend while we are open to see where we can build some new trails. If you have any ideas on trails or obstacles that would be a lot more harder for your type of rigs let us know.

I think some southern style trails/mild hill climbs with obstacles built in so they would require a little speed and horsepower.
