Mardi Gras Prep!

Getting ready for my first race of the 2019 PCA season.

Finally figured out my no start issue and put the car all back together.
Oil change, brake pads and flush.

Just needs a bath and some extra numbers to comply with 2019 rules changes.

Begneits & Beads for the win -- oh and maybe a bit of Abita (I'm too old for Hurricanes) to wash things down.





Mike

good to know!

That Oneg-II ain't very pretty :-) She needs more than just a door.

Haven't decided her fate yet -- tho she did get a new water pump and belt.

Awesome and glad you got all sorted. Good luck!!!

What kind of rig? Looks too big to be Trailex. Intech? Details would be great, please.

Weighing options as plan to move from my ATC hauler this year. I'm fine w/ height clearance and have enough pull & stop w/ my truck (12k rated) but still want to stick w/ aluminum and limit length so I can store in one of my garages.

Thanks and good luck in NOLA!

Thank you!

It's a 24' Montrose all aluminum. Empty it's ~2500# It's 6' tall, all 4 ends open up.
I was able to custom design it. Have 12' aluminum ramps and a dove tail so my RSR
can load without bottoming out.

Added front access tire rack, has a dual marine battery with 400W of solar with a 2K inverter, and a winch. Through in some tool boxes, a workbench, fuel holders e-track on the floors and additional lighting. They were great about me drop shipping the solar and cameras and installing prior to delivery.

I pull with my Cayenne Turbo, I haven't weighed it but I'm estimating ~6-6.5K loaded up, but
I haven't weighed it.

Cool thanks, Mike! Looked at them briefly when I bought the ATC but only had that tilt option enclosed at the time... just what I don't want, something else which can break - LOL. Will look at them again though.

A lot of track guys I know have trailex enclosed. I like the low profile and nice overall but pretty serious premium for sprung axles and 11' ramps, in my opinion. The only real customization they will do is moving axle around if needed for your application i.e if you have a 911 vs a 944 or mid-engine.

Anyhow, will send you PM with some questions, whenever you have a moment.

Thanks again and good luck next weekend!
