    Tom Pro Turbo car

    Tom Pro car Tom pro turbo system with blow off valve Ceramic coated ball bearing turbo  Reverse box 930 cv’s King shocks Bead lock wheels Hid light bar Front and rear brakes Jamar pedals, dual reservoir on slider- just rebuilt- Fire extinguisher 3” crow padded belts Razor front tires, awesome turning even without a differential.  Pictures are of the car after rinsing it off. I will update the ad with new pictures when polishing/detailing is done. This car has been in storage and has not seen the sand in 5 years. It is in very good shape. I cleaned out the old fuel and put some fresh stuff in and it fired right up. -The vacuum lines had some dry rot so they have all been replaced. -Currently working on detailing the car and getting the aluminum polished out. This is done. I need to take new pictures. - Reverse box only has a couple of trips on it. It was completely replaced by Tom. The original was built before Tom had his cnc machine and was thought maybe something was off. So he replaced it. Fresh oil in it now. -Auto meter silver gauges. -Sealed sand switches. -All wiring in good shape. No issues. -New agm battery. This thing rips!!! I had forgotten how strong it runs. As soon as boost comes on (which is pretty much immediate) this thing becomes a violent uncaged beast.At the same time it can just be a cruiser if you want to drive it that way too. No lagging turbo to make it undriveable. Frame and panels powder coated. Springs are powdercoated silver. Floor is powdercoated in hammer tone. Rear trailing arms powdered in hammer tone. Artwork done by k-daddy here in Bakersfield. The guy has real talent and it shows. Seats have been detailed with upholstery cleaner and look great! The bad- Car shows minor signs of being run. Some of powdercoat is worn off on the rear trailing arms. Few very minor scratches in high wear areas. Radiator tank cracked on a weld and was repaired with JB weld in the dunes. I plan to rebuild it out of a little thicker aluminum to keep this from happening, but for now that’s the way it is and has been fine since doing it years ago. The front left wheel is bent a little. It was straightened as best possible by hand and has no noticeable input on steering but has a tiny wobble if you look close at it while driving. The turbo is mounted very low due to space limitations. It does not hang down where it would be damaged by bottoming out. It however does not drain the engine oil well back to the sump. This causes the car to smoke at idle. This has never been an issue other than seeing it smoke. Motor is tight. I just got a California vin and am in process of getting the green sticker. If I had the coin I would buy this myself. Unfortunately I am not in a position to do so. I think somebody is going to score. $18,000 obo 661-201-2246 Scott

    Finally better cell service at D!

    Well it's still not April or May so I guess we'll have to wait and see. That's when the completion date is last we heard. I'm going out next weekend. I'll see if there's any progress.

    2.3 turbo ranger

    Hey there! Happy New Year! I just saw your post and I am also from Las Vegas. I have a 2.3L Turbo in my car also. It's a 1980 block from a Mustang II. I still seem to be working the bugs out of it!! If you're okay with it I'd like to meet up with you all at Dumont sometime - or maybe in Vegas?
  19. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day is an American federal holiday marking the birthday of Martin Luther King, Jr. It is observed on the third Monday of January each year. This year it is on the 21st. MLK Weekend is never very busy. It is actually quite peaceful and most look at it as a "duners holiday weekend". It's a chance to escape the crowds and get some quality duning in without the added stress of traffic in the dunes. UPDATE: The Banshee Wars and Four Stroke Wars have been cancelled due to the government shutdown. There isn't enough BLM staff to oversee the event. A few things to keep in mind for MLK weekend 2019 Holiday Pass required: MLK Weekend is designated a holiday weekend by the BLM meaning a holiday pass is required. The holiday pass dates for MLK are as follows: Jan 15 thru Jan 21, 2019 Government Shutdown: Please not that if there is still a government shutdown, there will be no staff to clean the restrooms or restocking of TP, so make sure you bring your own. Please remember to always practice "pack it in/ pack it out" and haul your trash out. There will also be no fire or medical staff on site. Use 911 for emergencies.

    New Years Weekend looking chilly

    Last evening we shut down the North Pole until sundown. MFSOB cold wind. Leaving this morning the sand seemed a bit tighter and it was an easier pull out. We’ll no doubt return for Presidents day.
