...Rally Dakar starts in 2 weeks.

See how many HDJ100s and VDJ200s you can spot! Toyota and Mini have really taken the lead over the past few years. And there are a almost a dozen Hilux this year too.

Until then here is a great video from last year:
Good racing so far
Man those pics are sweet. YT 80 build for SCORE stock class. Who's in?

Been pondering building up a caged 80 or 100 for SCORE or NORRA for quite a while Problem is not many/any parts have developed for dessert racing for either, and they have pretty high CGs. A few years ago guy in San Diego built up an 80 for Baja 1000, he retired very early. Rolled in to canyon IIRC. Its on Pirate4X4 somewhere. For Land Cruiser a surrey top FJ40 with a 350 would be a better way to go.
I guess I was thinking high speed suspension wise. A coil sprung 80 would be a much smoother ride at 70 mph in the desert I would believe. Not sure my back and teeth could take that many miles of high speed leaf spring abuse. Either way it would be awesome!!!

I remember following that 80 build, and his crash. Yikes! Didn't he then build a Lexus?
