I guess I wasn't clear. The sxs should race at a different time than the full-size vehicles. I know at the drivers meeting this mentioned. I hope they go thru with it.

Different class vehicles race together all the time, and I'm talking a lot more high dollar races and vehicles than hillbilly TREC racing. The problem is when over zealous drivers can't wait for a safe place to pass. Like it or not those slower drivers are out there and like it or not they can have an outcome on your race even though they are not in the same class. To bad if they get in the way at times, it's part of the race. On the other hand it doesn't give class A buggies the right to nerf them either. Roscoes racing should have been ejected for that move. Way to dangerous to be pulling that shit

Time to get the radiator out .of the front. We have had overheating problems every race, this time we added a screen around the Rad, it was a great help until it plugged up at lap 8 and had to be removed. Two laps after it was removed the radiator was plugged solid, this cost us ourour lead. Plan is to mount it above the engine, this should give us our much needed relief on the cooling system.

Definitely over zealous, he pushed us up a hill into the obstacles area where he had to slow down and run them as we passed them by. That was the only close call with the Fullsize rigs . We did get a chance to pass one a few times thru the whoops, the rhino can stay on top of them pretty good at speed.

I would look at it this way. Better to be safe then sorry. If you can do it with out affecting the performance and function of the rhino and radiator put it in.

If you need it I have some 1/4" thick lexan in the barn (18"x48" maybe)

Is that the polite way to ask? Do I need to treat you like one of you kids and ask what do you say?

I wonder how lexan will hold up with all the bouncing around. Seems like that stuff likes to crack. Why not get a thin sheet of aluminium?
