      Hi Vortexer's long time no see

      Heres a few pics of the current progress of the truck...showing the third tear down/rebuild of truck. This is in prep fror the Mexican 1000 in May 2014 http://www.norra.com/

      Lawrence is well underway with a lot of upgrades. New suspension and a new Olds V8 are the major changes.

      Enjoy

      I'm so glad to see this thread again. Will this be going to Dakar again or just the closer Baja style races?

      Was there a reason to go with the big V8 over the VW diesel? I imagine that changes the class that he'll run in.

      Why are you running a 215? Of all the aluminum V8s you can choose from, I struggle to understand that choice. I have one in my garage and it is an okay motor but I am not too sure hat I would want one in a car that will see high temps and constant high revs.
