I remember back in the day when TNN would run the swamp buggy races with I believe Steve Evans commentating...that was quality TV.

I've also seen your sport on T.V...
Please inform us on your combo? Class? Engine size? Wheels-tires? rear-end?

Inform us on other classes?

Most of the buggies I've seen are all brand X. How are you doing with your BBF?

thanks

Sounds like it need a little more silicone on the ignition as it hit the hole it got a pretty good miss...

I gotta admit, I too miss the good old days of motorsports, where ABC or whoever carried NASCAR, and TNN, and SPEED carried all the assorted flavors, from truck and tractor pulling, to WRC, to Swamp buggy racing. There is a whole lot more out there than NASCAR, and as much as I enjoy watching the boys rub a fender.. I would enjoy seeing the rest of the world all that much more.

390cfm carb, man that thing has to just about suck the butterflies out of the carb.........
