Tough Truck Competition...Wish me Luck!

This weekend is the 2003 Monsters on the Beach event that they hold yearly on the oceanfront here in Virginia Beach. I will be racing against all kinds of "street legal" vehicles. Some of these vehicles look like they should definately be labeled "Off-Road Only" and there are full size trucks and Jeeps that have big blocks that only run on 108 octane going up against little guys running in Nissan trucks, Toyota's, S-10's, Samurai's, Cherokee's, etc. Sound fair? The course is hard with two pretty large hills that I consider "jumps" and those of you that know me know why! Don't worry, I will be sure to post some pic's.

Anyway, wish me luck and hopefully I will not break the new Samurai it just took me 3 days to build!

Re: Tough Truck Competition...Wish me Luck!

Here is what I started with:




The guy I got this Samurai from stripped it completely. He took the even took the seats, dashboard, gas lines, and the brake lines! I am lucky it still had axles and springs under it. So literally EVERYTHING off of my totalled white Samurai had to get swapped over onto the new one.

Now my white Zuk is beyond stripped.....just a frame with a partial body.....and a set of seats! Still want it Billy Bob?

Here are a few pic's of the new black Zuk:




I left the bumpers off to save on weight, but they will be back on after the event. I also had to put the 31's on it with these gay aluminum wheels so it would do better in the sand with the lighter tires. The lighter the tire the faster the wheel speed and the quicker I can get down the course. The course is too short and too hilly to go over 45 or so MPH, but at 45 I can get some sick air!

Good luck, and remember that Tim Hardeys Zuke won the tough truck compition at Hollister Hills a few years back. And that was towing a trailer even.
