Possibly, but not likely.

Likely not. We now have a full set of King 3” bypasses and King coil overs. They’re a good starting point for a new car. The only question is what we build. Right now it’s leaning towards a 73-75 Blazer. Close second is a v8 Jeep.

So is anyone working with ford on a NEW 2020 Ford Bronco to race?

Don?
Moss does have the rep & might be able to talk them into sponsoring him a new Bronco when it comes out?

New cars/ Bronco

Guys like Greg Foutz, who has done the Raptors for Ford already, would likely get the first shot at a new Bronco. It’s too bad that SVO doesn’t show some love to the Moss Team. It would help if we had more entries in the cl3.

Moss Has 100% earned 1st shot at a Class 3 Factory back or donated Bronco Sponsor!

I'm sure FORD must realize this if the want to show a great sales pitch for them to have them racing for them!!!

I am!


Please remind me as we get closer to the race, Tomorrow I'm getting a Brand new Travel Trailer & this might be a fun trip to take with it, if I can park it course side?

Have you will you soon be updating the suspension to the new rules?

We still planning on racing Vegas to Reno. Any 4x4 racers planning on racing it, besides me? We're still going to run the suspension with leaf springs for this race, so we'll run Vintage, but for the 1000 we'll run Class 3.

Nice to see there are still folks on the site! I have been absent for a while and life took over. Moved further north this past year and started my shop and hope to finish this spring/summer and move my vehicles from Boise. Hope to see you racing Chris!

Shop first and then get vehicles north and then work on the Blazer. Foundation is in and start framing when the snow melts. Is there a rule change now to go independent front suspension for the straight axles? Sorry been out of the loop for a while. I will keep mine for now. Might try to come to a race and help out if I could.

No IDFS from what I know.
But being Chevy guy you can now run Coil overs & not stuck with factory style Leafs?
