Road Rash we call all the rigs Jeeps. We have a race in Richland this weekend. My rig is home built. I still call it a Jeep.
My Grandpa used to call all bikes Honda's. Funny.
Yes WC's is a sprung over YJ on 35's. Most of us run 35's with a couple 36's.
I do prefer the leaf springs to coils. They seem to have a softer ride. Surprisingly I have done the RTI ramps and I'm so close to the Rubicons it doesn't matter. In fact at the point the spring rigs beat me they are almost always losing springs.






Here's a Rubicon that did not score as high. With a 4" lift and Nth degree swing arms.
He disconnected his shocks cause I beat him. Scored a smidge higher than me, then blew out his rear driveline from the overflex then next week.
Here he is before the shock disconnect.







Here's one of our race Jeeps, They don't flex as much.
He won the points championship last year and is super fast.
You'll see more of him as the season rolls on.



Here's another. First one is in the long class.
This one is short.






Here's Tammy Nwgs wifelet. aka "Better Half" and ours. 60 rear 44 front.
Rear coil and front leaf. 383 stroker about 550 hp.
If I can keep it from breakin. I'll have some pics from this coming weekend up next week.

Girls and Kids all race. Some of the girls kick some serious but.
When they got their game face on, I just get outa the way.
