You have to run at least once in awhile in the 40 and under class! The one comp I did you were the one that beat me! Need a chance to at least TRY and kick your ass with the new motor!

Seriously, have fun with it, looks like it will be a good time!

I made the bender a couple of years ago......bought some plans off of Pirate. Its air over hydraulic.

Don't worry, either I won't have time or $$ to finish this and will run the toyota again......regardless it will get run again (it needs a little tlc though). You can always bump up to the next class with that new 6.0
