Yup, Baja is tough on equipment! Lots of rocks!!

Awesome that the engine held up, should be good advertising for your engine guy. I imagine you already have plans for suspension upgrades for next year?

Great job - interested in the follow up report and how you would improve the suspension.

Fine family outing!

Holy crap.

Cory and I just pulled into my driveway. Two days ago we had huevos con tocino for breakfast at the Perla in La Paz!!


I will update some tomorrow, but we ended up having to leave early so we loaded up the Subaru with about 2,000 pounds of parts, spares and tools and had to leave the Dude and Mike fishing alone

We made it to the border in record time in the race car with the A/C and the tunes blasting....it did not have a single mechanical issue this whole trip except for struts.....it is a good story..I can't wait to tell!

Hasta manana!
