My Newest Toy (bought for 1320 fun)

Since my Blown Dual Quad 502 Pro Street Sierra is just to dam Mint & Flawless to be loaded, unloaded, towed, and raced, I decided to keep that for Fun on the Street and I picked up something else to beat the piss out of at the track, (and have some fun with on the street also).

Picked up this little Ranger and was drawn to it by the quality of the Build as well as the documentation and race history. I literally have a bill for ever single part on the truck, the specification of that part, and any maintenance or adjustment needed for it. I also have a log book for every single pass it's ever made and the conditions and set up for it on that day.

I wanted to make a few changes so I swapped to a Pro Rachet Shifter, a different Line Lock Button & Location, I moved the Trans Brake Button, installed a Quick Release Steering Wheel, Moved the Race Seat, new 5 Point Harness, did some general maintenance, and spent a day under it going over every single nut and bolt.

A few weeks in and I already know this truck from head to toe and feel like it's been mine forever...

Here's some pic's ...

Drove @ 1000 miles in one day to go get it

Let the modding begin...

Put the Slicks on it Saturday and took it to Atco to see what it would do first time out

And I was pleasantly surprised with the results for first time out in 90 degree heat
