    I agree, but my family doesn't. Those were my first races last year. It was a good time. Soboba was a blast.

    I hear ya...I raced Soboba twice too and loved it. Placed 6th both times...lol. Here's a video of the first lap in 2009...just a tad muddy, to say the least. :)

    Look what the brown truck dropped off today. I'm going to mount it directly above the steering wheel, in the roof-line. I'll probably run two side mirrors, just inside of the a-pillars, so no concern about covering up the mirror.

    I didn't realize they came with the white plastic cover. I had to buy that separate for my last one.

    You can get it from your local Polaris dealer.

    It is a HD5 Gen 2. The extras you get by buying the Polaris version is the branding, the white plastic cover (the cover does not come with the non-Polaris version, but is available), and the pre-loaded trail maps. I'm not too sure about the maps yet, as I haven't installed it. As soon as I get it setup, I'll do an install and demo video.

    Here's what I may be changing to for the seat (Kirkey Model 58):

    That seat is 10lbs. lighter than my Sparco EVO II Plus.

    I ran a Kirkey in my RZR1 and loved it. They look uncomfortable but they feel good.

    I've sat in quite a few of them, but never raced in one. I'll probably give it a shot in this build. I'm shooting for a completed weight of 1000 lbs (bare necessities) and below 1100 in full race trim. That may be a little optimistic, but I need to set a tough goal.

    Thanks. I'm putting it on hold until the Kirkey seat gets here. Once that's here, I can be confident that none of the pedal and steering locations need to change. I'm hoping for first of next week.

    I've also decided to build my own fuel cell. None of the ones available fit the profile I need.

    The fuel cell will use a dry break and large check valve. The same setup I have on my 2012.

    I've also decided to do a side exhaust to better aid in weight balance.

    Yes, but Kirkey will be building the seat. It will be the same one pictured earlier.

    I'll also be adding a set of these to the mix. Should be around 13-14 lbs lighter (total, both sides) than stock by the time they're painted and the tabs for the shock and sway bar are added.

    More info to come on brand and availability.

    Yes, aluminum for the fuel cell. I'm shooting for around 8 gallons.

    UPS guy dropped off these new ratchet harnesses by PRP from SXSPerformance. I have been reading about these things for a couple of years. I run my harnesses really tight and have a hard time getting in and out of the car because of it. Hopefully this ratcheting mechanism will be a lot easier to adjust and make entry and exit a lot easier.
