Yes 440ci LS7, callies crank and rods, CNC'd trickflow headas and fast intake should make a good 700+hp but we'll see??? If I can get the time, be about another three weeks and It'll be done!! I hope :grinpimp:

So which class are you going to driving? Rules for modified only allows small paddles like padlatrak or Dick Cepek Multi Paddle, but i think they are not anymore making Multi paddles?

But for unlimited it looks nowdays that bigger diggers or skoopers are the way to go. What i've been looking somehow I think bigger diggers in front and skoopers in rear would give better handling in turns, but for straight up hillclimbs bigger diggers do have more grip, but they also need more power. Hard to say what is the ideal solution, but "The Legend" Gisli G. runs on Skoopers and seems to do just great:smokin:

Maybe you get more ideas if you write to Formula Off Road part?

Yes I spoke to Arne and have gone with a set of scoopers I now have 5 of and 5 2000's so can have a play around and see what works best??? diggers might be a bit much as I'm not running huge power??

Hello Tim.
I saw on jeff`s page that he bought a set of fox air shocks from you. Do you also sell race runner 2" air shocks?

Yes can do you a set no problem, why do you not want to run FOX???

I haven`t experienced any of them, but a lot of guys in my club use the race runners. So thats what I`m familiar with.
