Need help determining class & looking for co-pilot

I've viewed score's class description but its not very helpful. eventuly ill fork over the $25 for the rule book.... maybe. I got a 96.5 2.7l 4cl tacoma, full fiberglass flares, 3' thru the bed (to bed cage) race-runners 2' wheel travel rear and 1.2' fron on camburg modified a-arms, had the 4x4 arm extended so it is 4 wheel capable, full cage, deaver leafs in rear, beard seats (5-pt harness), its a two seater (also i'm looking for a co-pilot that can operate the onboard and navigate) 1.5' race-runners up front, bump stops all around, and i'm running 33x10.5 bfg muds on a 15" w/ champion bead locks. all else is stock. (oh centerforce dual friction clutch and detroit locker in the rear only. looking at the tecate 500 to get my feet wet (maybe do 200 mi we'll see) hope fully copilot will go halves on a rally logger. Co-pilot must supply own safety eqpt. (minus belts)

Re: Need help determining class & looking for co-pilot

Baja is probably not the place to "get you feet wet". YOur truck wold be a Sportsman class - only the saftey rules would apply - cage, cell, belts, nets, etc. My suggestion is to do a local US base race first. You best bet right now is the MORE 1450 class - next race is May 28th in Lucerne CA. Beard Seats is putting up the entry fee <aka almost free racing!> for this event. Go to www.moreracing.net for more details. I also run this series so feel free to email me if you need assistance.

Thanks, yeah I'm going to the 500, but not racing it. I thought I will do a short race put on by Whiplash Racing early this summer to "get my feet wet". Thanks for the advice.

Re: Need help determining class & looking for co-pilot

delimiter, stay away from SCORE unless you have some serious money to spend and rebuild of the truck is in order. New rules require that all steel cages be built a certain way. I have raced baja and CA for many years then left the sport to finish my schooling. Still doing some fab work and prep stuff on the side of my profession. As mentioned above you will want to stick with the pre runner class for now. MORE and MDR offer some great races for that. your truck will fit in well. As for the mods A good pre run session will help you figure out if things are right. I have been a co -rider for many years, in baja just because I know it so well. As for MDR and others I race DB's there now..so reading terrain is the best skill you can have. I have also driven for many years and nows whatit takes to finish a race. if still looking give me a ring...
