It's still a gigantic brick pulling a smaller brick. The weight isn't the issue, the drag is going to be rediculous.

Yes Bill needs a PR, Bruce Buffer Annoucer for Inviscid Motorsports... AKA (a Johnny J)

I'll post some updates that I know of.

The buggy is 98% ready to get it!
Bill picked up some new Treps that look bad ass and he is getting 4 more when we arrive on the lake bed. They are a bit smaller than his 42's but they should work great!!!!

New fuel cell is installed,

Some of the lights were moved for better lighting on night wheeling, as we are hoping bill finishes before dark on race day.
The buggy still needs to go to the car wash so she looks pretty on arrival. There is a fair amount of mounds mud, so we all know that should clean up real fast....lol

Inviscid also has two of the badest pit rig/prerunners that will be on the lake bed. They are loaded and ready

only a few more days till departure!!!

Toter updates:

Sleeper "remodeled" with a home rigged futon, bed it made, heating blanket set aside to take with us, lol. Bathroom is complete, door is up, I hung the tp holder up myself (take a bow), lol. Swept and shop vac'ed the floors, starting to load er up.

I think Billy plans to put new speakers in the cab tonight - cd player works, current speakers SUCK. Need to mount the TV for entertainment on the drive home. Oh, and hooks in the box to hang my hammock need to get done, or at least purchased and we'll hang it out on the lakebed! :)

Only thing we won't have done that we wanted to (I think) are the mud flaps with the Inviscid plates my brother made...but we'll have that done for the summer races.

Charlie's 2 seat RZR
Tim's Kawie dirtbike
The buggy.
4 42" MTRs
4 loose rims
air compressor
welder
about 10 plastic totes of spare parts / tools
PAC Racing display case
4 gas jugs
2 coolers
and a bunch of tools.

I'm sure there is more that I can't remember.

.... and then there is a trailer with DJs 4 seater RZR, more spare parts, 3 spare trailer tires...

I have pics, but they are on the camera at home.

SOunds snug.... will the generator fit up front in my trailer? Rather than hanging outside. If you move the totes in the front of my trailer there should be room.
