    Hey guys. Just found this thread and was excited to see what happened to my old car as I hadn't seen it since I sold it a long time ago (2012 ish I think). Just wanted to shed some light on a few things. There is a Rancho sticker on the trans that was not there when I sold the car. Not sure what they worked on, but that silicone on the boots was not there when I owned the car, and I assume the extra ball wasn't either. The motor was built by CBM and hopped up a bit but was built to run on pump gas. 600ish hp estimate. The MSD coils were installed by CBM when the motor was built. They were a "upgrade" so to speak and I added them because I thought they looked alot better than the stock ones. I did in fact have a couple of them fail during the 4 seasons I had the car. I put thousands of miles on that car in both the hardpack and sand, and I will be the first to admit that I was not the best at preventative maintenance. When I sold it, one of the main reasons is that it needed to be prepped just like LRS did and I didn't want to spend the money as I was losing interest. The car was a beast and am stocked to see how well it has held up for the new owner.

      I'm pretty sure I remember seeing you in this car in Ocotillo Wells way back in the day, maybe Easter or Thanksgiving weekends. This car really stood out.

      I was told by Bruce at CBM that this was someone else's engine and built right next to his old 2 seat Mosebilt (before he was building his own stuff) and it is a badass LS7. Can't remember who he said built it but I'll ask him when I'm there next week. I put those CBM valve covers on for the current owner (probably who you sold it to) so most people assume it's a CBM built engine.

      Those MSD coil packs SUCK! I worked on a Tatum that was losing power and we found it had two bad MSD coils. I got some from CBM for free cause they had a box full of them that they had replaced with stock GM packs.

      Glad to hear you didn't silicone those CV boots. Seems like it was a repair done while in the dunes, and probably why there was an extra ball in the boot. I did this full prep on the car and the owner intended to put it up for sale but I don't think he ever did. It's probably still sitting in his garage in Oxnard where I delivered it. It's too bad because it's a really nice car.
