Merlin Puettman who races 5-1600 car wants to race his car in three weeks and needs some last minute help getting the car ready.

A few of us are going to his house tomorrow in attempts to get things done.

I know it is short notice but anyone who can help out will be welcomed greatly.

We need to do an engine swap, re-index the rear suspension and rebuild the front-end. Race is on Dec 12th.

He lives just North of Cactus off of 23rd ave.

Last weekend before the race. We will be testing Merlins 5-1600 this weekend and doing final prep on the car if anyone is interested in helping out.

Give Merlin a call if you are available. His number is listed in a previous post for this thread.

Car is together and we are anticipating an 11am testing session at the Geiser loop. I will take some pics and post them.

Race is Next Sat. My car, Merlin's and hopefully Greg's 11 car will all be running.

Testing went great. Car has a few gremlins that Merlin will handle this week. Overall, the car ran great and the suspension rebuild in the rear works awesome.

Best of luck to Merlin on Sat at the SADR race in Mexico.

Race Recap for the Rocky Point Race.

Greg Paraino was unable to make the race in his 11 car. He will be racing a full season in 2015 including some of the SADR races in Rocky point.

My car had a close but no cigar day. After a great start we made a wrong turn and lost 20 minutes finding our way safely back onto the course. This put us back a long way. After getting back on course we had a flat at RM 57. This put us further back. HOWEVER, we rebounded and finished in 2nd place for class 10 by about 8 minutes, The class 10 winner was the overall winner. Like I said, close but no cigar.

Merlin and his 5'1600 had a rough day. After a complete front and rear suspension rebuild, Merlin lost a couple CV joints and a transmission. HOWEVER, the V8 buggy he was racing against in sportsman unlimited had more trouble. Merlin nursed the sick little baja across the line before the ailing V* car and took the victory.

Merlin is looking for additional help in the 2015 season and is opening up to the AzBaja.com members to help out

Drop him a call/text if you can help out : 530-318-1368
