Its official, after having Joe in the pits this weekend, and having worked with him on a bunch of other things, on Tuesday morning, it is heading to Hellmanns to have everything else finished. I simply don't have the time to finish and get it ready for TS with work, and family obligations. Joe made the offer to help, and I jumped on it. He has a lot to do, and he and Richard will be working on it for the next several weeks. Tuesday morning its making its way out of Austin. While its there Joe and Richard are going to install the trans brake from Doug at GOGO, and finish up the other stuff that remains. There gonna take it to the track, and shake it down, (while I await video's and news like the rest of you :bang) and get it dialed in.

When I see it next, its gonna be a whole nother animal.

Many of you have asked why Richard was driving, and why I am skeered? LOL Several reasons:

a: I have obligations and a work schedule that is not going to allow me to make as many events as I want the truck to be at.
b: Richard is by far the most qualified given his history, and has way more experience than I.
c: He and I are good friends, and I trust him with my life, so my truck is a no brainer.
d: He is scary and intimidating from the other lane to look at. LOL
e: I aint Skeered, and will be driving it at any events I can. The question I have to ask for TS is whats more important to me. Me driving it for fun, or Richard driving it and getting good hits? I will get better, but I am still a rookie.

This was the plan from day 1. If you look at the way the seats are set in the truck, they are actually setup more for his big ass then mine. I have to reach to get stuff when I am strapped in. Sasquatch does not.

Can't wait to see what you have in store for it Joe.

Re: Deranged going to Joe Hellmans

Are we talking Richard..... Haltom??

Sounds like a great plan!! I would love to be able to drop something off at Joe's and let him work on it. That dude does some nice work.

Re: Deranged going to Joe Hellmans

I'd let richard drive my truck as well.......... i'd be afraid he would beat me up.... let alone be an intimidation to the other drivers... He's a big bully...:poke:

I thought it was cause he has longer legs to push the pedal farther...

I was just wondering, because I saw him standing outside of the truck for a few passes. Looks like it's gonna be a lot of fun. The power looks like it's there after the turbos spool...
