Here comes Sandblast again!

I was suprised to see that another Alltrac will be competing this year! Does anyone know if he is on alltrac.net?

"14 0 (SS) Super Stock Alfonso Lopez / Nick Martinez Toyota Celica All Trac"


I'm going to be running an in car camera for the first time so if all goes as planned we will have video of all stages.

Update:

Cage is almost done being fitted with new door bars, belt bar, and a few more gussets.

The DMS has been raised back to gravel height

Rally tires go on after test and tune is complete.

Almost ready for Sandblast!

Well, I ended up having to withdraw due to electrical problems (air meter wires I think).

My crew stayed up all night while I slept trying to get us rallying but it just was not meant to be. Special thanks to Mark "stealthgtfour" for helping my guys out.

The car ran great during the shakedown, besides me missing second :twisted: here is the onboard:

I forgot to mention that Alfonso's 165 was super nice and was set up the same as mine used to be before I moved to "open class". His was also a Union 7 build.

He ended up DNF due to an overheating issue. He lives in FL but I do not think he has joined alltrac.net although I would not be suprised at all if he pops up pretty soon.

Ps I should have some more incar pretty soon after next weeks test and tune on some gravel.

I was wondering what happened to you guys. Didn't see you at all after shakedown. Considering I was working SS2, I figured it had to be bad. Sorry you didn't get to run, but glad that it doesn't sound catastrophic and permanent.

See you at RWV if you are there!
