It's been a while..
« on: May 17, 2016, 12:02:31 AM »
Hello everyone. I used to be a member here a long time ago when this first got started. Built a buggy with a Honda trans in it. Met a group of awesome people at LS. Fought a battle with death. Got a divorce and lost everything. Went crazy for a while. But I am still alive. How has everyone been?

Thanks guys. It has been w long road. Lol. Glad nothing has changed Fabr. My last build was drivable. Lol. After reading through some of the posts about them I'm kind of embarrassed to say I now own a Joyner sand spider. And it's a blast.

Man it is stupid fun. I was going to post some pics but it won't let me from my phone. I plan on chopping up the Joyner and swapping its motor out for something with some more power. Not looking for more top speed just wanting to get there faster.

I'll have to go check it out Fabr. I'm sure it is amazing.

Doug: man good to hear from you. Yes I am thinking about making the LS trip this year. As I was telling Fabr earlier I have a Joyner Sand Spider now. I know I know. It's Chinese. But actually after trying to source of the shelf parts for it they took several already made pieces from a wide array of atv and automotive parts. Leaving the frame the only in house made thing. And it honestly feels safer than what I built. Lol. That's bad. Also I think I still have some business to settle up on with you Doug. Can't remember what it was or how much but I think when the dust settled I owed you something. If you remember let me know and I'll get you taken care of. I'm gonna need some guidance on cv axles as I am gonna try to get rid of these that are on here and go for something I can get off the shelf. So I will be tapping into everyone's infinite knowledge soon.
