Ready for Desert Storm, and Sponsors Come Up BIG!

Its Tuesday night, March 9th...Desert Storm Rally (www.DesertStormRally.com) is this week and I did most of my packing tonight.

We have a long list of things that still need to get done, and a short list of things to be delivered tomorrow....so EXCITED!!

One of those shipments is a few new LASSA Rally Tyres from www.Rally-Tire.com...UP2MTNS is excited to enter into a 'reseller' partnership with Rally-Tire; you can now order directly from us for your LASSA rally tires needs. We're excited to be a part of bringing LASSA products to the USA; we already have several CA based rally teams running LASSA's at Desert Storm and other CRS rallies this year.

This past weekened I took the car up to Tahoe and did a little testing over by BoomTown, just inbetween Truckee and Reno. I discovered an exhaust leak in my Grimmspeed uppipe, which was one of the problems my tuner was having turning up the boost the previous week. I emailed Justin Grimm, and by 11am Monday morning Pacific time, I had and email back saying they would not only replace the part, but ship it 2nd day so I would have it in time for this weekend....talk about customer service and living up to their sponsorship. THANKS GRIMMSPEED!!!

We'll also debut the new Carbon Creations carbon fiber hood! From www.ExtremeDimensions.com, Ryan Li (President) donated one of their STI carbon fiber hoods to replace the previous worn-out hood last fall....after Seed 9 and a lot of pre-work this winter, we've finally got this installed and ready for rally action.

Also, special thanks to Odi at Feal Suspension for getting all four of our DMS inserts rebuilt last month, and to Lars Wolfe (www.WorksEVO.com), who helped out with a last-minute emergency when something 'snapped' on re-installation, and instead of having to buy brand new inserts, his crazy TIG skills saved the day (uhh....saved the YEAR!)

Last...Carbonetic.net also came on board as a sponsor earlier this year; Lars is working on upgrading our rear R160 diff with a new carbon LSD, and that will be installed in time for High Desert Trail Rally. A transmission upgrade is in our future, and we'll be sure to run a Carbonetic front LSD in that new transmission.

Looks for video updates this weekend from Qik.com in Desert Storm's Park Expose and hopefully in service as well!

Rally on!!
