We were racing the two prowlers. We broke many tie rods. Bent one rear a-arm on one machine. Our doom was we ran out of tie rods. Over 500 miles of testing here in Florida and never bent one. We will be there for the 500 in june with some new tricks up our sleeve.

little bit different terrain down there huh? I spoke with guys outside tech inspection and did notice that those tie rods looked a little suspect, but oh well Baja is good at teaching lessons, everytime I set rubber in Baja it teaches me something new. Your guys' story is great, you must really be stoked on this to prep 2 vehicles and drive all the way from Florida. people with passion like you guys is what makes Baja racing so great, keep it up.

I'm not sure exactly what we are going to do, but I plan on fielding a car for the 500 in 07. I hope to be able to drive most of it myself. I don't think it will be a stock Rhino, we may go out side of the box a little for this one. Time will tell. Stay tuned to www.jaggedx.com
