Hay Off-Roaders!!!


Its that time of year again for The AVC 400miler May 21th - 22nd

I have been working on both cars to get them ready,,, this year was my year for break downs.. after I broke my wheel off on the Hassassampa river run it has been a nightmare of repairs ... but after two weekends of test/day runs my rail is back to 100% and ready for the next adventure.. My Baja has been a lot of reworks of things I did not like.. I finely got the parts for my winch after breaking it pulling a truck out of a ditch.. ... Yes I can winch a full size truck out ... I will put that knowledge in the box of things I will never do again. I don't know why I offered to help I must have been bored or stupid... even the guy in the stuck truck gave me the look of "Your kidding me". I took over an hour,,, but inch by inch I pulled him out. Back to the Baja. I just need about an hour to finish up a few things and she will be back to 100%... YES! Keep your phones on my Baja friends. I have been working on the Baja's camping configuration I think I am almost there I started buying up new camping gear here and there.. I don't want to move the camping stuff from the Rail to the Baja every time I want camp with the my Baja. For the past few years I have thinking about it.. I think I am ready for an overnighter somewhere...


For those of you that have never been on the AVC 400 miler this is a relatively easy event most of the dirt roads are extremely mild( stock Baja approved ) the issue is this is the AVC 400 miler is a very long event, we do almost 400 miles on dirt. Stopping for gas, food and ice along the way.. This is not a race this is held on public roads and you will need to obey ALL the traffic laws. Drive within your means and your vehicle's capability. If this is your first time on this event we have the day runners that follow us over for peaks the pumpkin Center and then back in the same day. We have the folks that can't wait to get out there and usually drive somewhere up for peaks and On Friday night and campout. If you want to join the Friday night campers call Kenny. The biggest issue on this event is loose nuts and bolts and flat tires due to under inflation.
What I usually do is I have a rescue plan I usually back in my trailer and put the drawbar on the truck so all my friend needs to do is back up to my trailer and come and get me I've done this for the past 20 years and I've never had to have anyone come and fetch me. but it's nice to know it's there if I need it. All the roads are 2 Wheel Drive accessible in one way or another..

Our club's number one rule is "no one gets left behind"!!! If you get lost STOP!! we have a designated tail gunner that is the last car in this event, They will be happy to point you the right way.

F.Y.I - I am going back to Flagstaff over Memorial Day weekend May 27th - 30th.. drop me a note of you are thinking of going.

I'm confused about this driving over a 5 gal. bucket thing? What does it have to do with anything off road related?

Let's see..... How does clearance have anything to do with off-road? And why would you choose a common object with dimensions that we are all familiar with like a bucket to show the clearance yor car has? Will this clearance also work with rocks and stumps or does it only work on buckets...Next you'll start talking about how far yor wheels go up and down.... No! No! No! No!!!!

If I was into rock crawling in a VW I guess cranking your suspension up to get a lot of ground clearance might be the thing.

I like to race off road, so I look at it from that aspect.

To each his own.

Now I'm confused?!?! Is there a maximum allowed ground clearance for off road racers? What if I was running 8" over Jm pro arms up front and 33's with 3x5's out back with 35" tires and mid travel it still cleared a bucket? Would I have to lower my car to be competitive? I think this is just a case of bucket envy.....

higher lifted cars mean higher center of gravity, and that is not typically your friend off-road racing, especially when you're throwing the car into berms at high speeds that usually like to flip cars over.
