Default Stu-Zuki Class 1 Upgrade

Time to get this little booger ready for Montana, and that means legalizing it for C1 competition. It's close to legal already so it won't take too much. While I'm at it I'll load the sucker up with extra scale points.



Gotta have a rear bumper. I decided on a beat-up stock unit with the taillights knocked out. I also upgraded the spare to within 1/4 of the drive tires.



Departure angle is still good



Added some flares since I was real close to the 50% coverage. Now there's no doubt.

Then I looked under the hood and decided there was room for a 1.6. Stay tuned for that!

Hilux sliders fit... barely.





Might be a little big, but what the hell

Just back from the MSD Nats where the little guy did real good, but paid the price:



Lots of parts came off, including the hood, steering wheel, a driving light, yadda yadda. Took home the Best Interior award at the concours, too



Busted up a seam on the passenger side but it'll buff out.

With its thin body and heavy steel chassis is handles a lot better than it should, and the Dick Cepek tires hooked up real good. I'll repair it and keep on truckin'.
