I saw my first Trophy Truck 19 years ago and have drolled at the chance to take a ride in one since. Today I did. Words cant describe haulin *** in a $500K race truck. I rode with Reigning Points Champ, Current Points leader, and Team Durka Member BJ Baldwin.

You can buy a built ranger or yota for $10-20k. Converting a titan is not worth it.

or a half built one for 30k.

itd be worth it if the funds allow. i think titans are going to be popping up all over the desert scene before you know it..the potential for these trucks is way better than any of the big 3 companies.

I don't know how you did it, but man had to be a rush!!
Looks like a CORR track, was it and where?
Just the sound of a TT on the gas gets my hair standing on end...
I'm sure you thanked him and let it be known you are available in the future for right seat duty ANYTIME...
I have to ask...What's it like the first time he throws that truck sideways coming into a hi speed corner?

"Things to do before you die"

Pick a banana from a banana tree
Pick a coconut from a coconut tree

I think that's about it.

Forget the fruit trees, I was more Trophy Trucks. The rest of my weekend up there was great but even if it was a disaster I would not have cared.

I think my quote over the intercom at the end of the ride was "This is better than banging two 18 year olds!"

k, you didn't happen to shoot the $hit with BJ or the Baldwin camp after the race did you? just to see what kind of mood he was in after they took the win from him?

hey Kart, SDtitan1 and i checked out the ranger in riverside... don't know if you've seen it yet, but [email protected] one hell of a fabrication job! the cage rocks and both SD and I were cracking up when we saw the bumper :jester: i'm sure if i saw that rolling down the trail behind me, i'd quickly get off the trail...:jester:

ah MacCachren looks happy! it's almost funny to see TTs racing shortcourse, poor trucks.......I see you got visionX on board Kart, nice.

new cage is definitely looking good, still plan on having it ready in a month or so?
