My mistake. I thought SL was all directional . Since you are used to dinky dunes you might want to try out Beaver Dunes and Syracuse dunes as well in the area. I wouldn't ever go to either again on purpose but it seems like many of us get curious once. Once is all it takes. :m

never been to beaver dunes and never will. heard from several it's ok on a quad so not worth the time on a rail. i will re visit syracuse someday just to see the changes since i was only there once the 2nd year it was open. i do have to agree, it wasn't impressive back then! the town was/is a lot nicer than waynoka for sure but they need to open the dunes up and kill the vegetation!

here is a video of one of our dts group runs at st anthony idaho sand dunes. everyone but fabr is in the run. he was in town getting an issue fixed on his toter. someday you should consider a trip to st a. doug can fill you in on the drive as he has made it twice. those are the med ish sized dunes in the video. it was cloudy and my go pro doesn't work well in those conditions. no matter you can get a gauge of the dunes in the video. youtube music as they wouldn't allow what i had picked so its cheesy.

Possibly will take black buggy,blue buggy won't make it ,I might just play with the yxz's this time though. Won't have to take anything but the dually down since the yxz's are already there in their home away from home just waiting for me to get there. Pretty nice to just get in truck ,drive down,open garage and ride. Still tying up a few loose ends now on black like tuning and finalizing the HVAC in it .I'll be down there a couple more times before our group goes playing with the go-karts..  We'll see what happens. No matter,it's all fun.

It won't be that smooth when you get here. The massive increase in sxs traffic has ruined the smooth sand thing. It will be rutted up unless we get some decent winds . It used to smooth out over night. Seems like it takes 2-3 days of good wind now.

Well all righty...
Things escalated rapidly in the garage last Sunday.  I got a wild hair up my ass to get going on something.  That turned into pulling the ole 750 out of the car, along with the wiring, body panels and cooling system.  The Busa is going in...but not before some modifications....  Yeah, I can't leave anything alone.  The worst part is the car just ran SO GOOD!  Well, it can only get better, right?
The engine WILL fit into the chassis, but...BUT it is really cramped.  I got to doing some measuring and microsoft paint renderings as seen below. 

The car is going to be a lot faster, so why not make it handle better as well.  I will be stretching the chassis 10-15".  I can do this without hacking the crap out of the chassis.  In fact, I can build the whole rear end on the bench.
I will be going with non plunging 930's and an equal length upper and lower arms to get the car to 80" overall width and the wheelbase to 100" or so.
Iv'e got a really good idea to hold the center spool and adjuster so that it will be really stout and also incorporate the back 2 engine mounts.  It should keep things nice an aligned for fabrication.  Just taking the original design to a new level.  It will be more of a bulkhead design.
 

Below is the chassis currently.  The yellow lines represent where I will be cutting.  I have a buyer for the entire rear clip too!

Here is my highly skilled updated chassis design.  LOL


Well, time to get building!!!
