    OK, I dug around and found some shots of older setups on this truck.
    Glassworks with General 35's, and Glassworks with BFG 37's, the only thing is it also jumped from midperch to top when we went to BFG 37's. and now you are looking at another version as part of the NORRA prep where we are on ICONs which are a kinda in the middle, w 37 Generals. Hope that helps.

    Thanks there Evilmonkey...we are really pleased with the current setup, was making laps at the TRR yesterday and got to hammer on it....Dial in some more compression and rebound out back and she was loving the abuse.

    thanks kx250, i think it looks just fine with glass and 35s, but looks great in all stages of the build.

    I remember you talking to Conner about this NORRA race at Outlaw Offroad. I am happy to see you pull it all together. You have one of the Best fab shops (Outlaw Raptor), Icon shocks have Really come on strong in the Raptor parts market, and you have picked a GREAT co-dog in Wiz 1500. I had wiz in SPRSNK's truck for a quick hot lap so I know he will guide you to the best of his abilitys. Wiz is also a mechanical wizard, he helped to change a broken belt on the Raptor Expeditions land rush 1000.
    I wish I could come along to run chase/support for you, keep me informed on future plans.
    Grant, it's all up to you now. Slower is faster, smooth is fast ! If you want to finish first, first you must finish
    Go out and represent the Raptor community !

    Thanks Big Scott, I remember us standing around in the show room and talking about racing and the NORRA Mexican 1000. It has been and still is a lot of work to get this program together and off the ground. The truck has come along way since that day we were talking about it. You are correct, Outlaw has been a great help putting the truck together and we are OUT OF OUR MIND happy with ICON and how the shocks are feeling in the truck. Dylan was out at TRR and help tune things as we did some test sessions. The shocks were pulled at his request and he did some updates and gave us a new updated set. Of course the Outlaw Raptor boys stayed late to bolt it back on. I am in charge of the big pile of stuff behind the truck that is being divided between the race truck and the chase rig. The pile keeps growing.!! LOL.

    Wiz and the rest of the support group fly in tomorrow around noon, we load up and head down to Mexicali. Sat Morning is tech and we get racing first thing Sunday.

    You need to get down to Mexico, we would love to have you along, we will be doing other events and will keep you posted.
