Smile New from Colorado

Hello

We live in Colorado Springs, Colorado and race 360 ASCS winged sprint cars all over the midwest. Last fall we bought a 1989 GMC Topkick Toter with a Aero Lite 12' conversion. The truck has a 230hp turbocharged Detroit diesel engine with a six speed manual trans with a 3.9/1 diff. We will be pulling a 40' gooseneck 2012 Super Hauler trailer.

We have lots of new Toterhome guy type questions so look forward to chatting with you old hands.

Sounds like fun. I went to Cedar Lake Speedway in Wisc. and watched those sprint cars with the huge mungus wings on top. Wow, those things FLY! Very cool, amazing acceleration. On dirt too. Sounds like you've got a neat truck too. I like the paint job.

Thanks for the welcome. I'm pretty sure we have more race car than truck. It is a beautiful low mileade truck but I remain skeptical as to if it has enough grunt for our purpose. We shall see, or first race is 31 March down in Park City, Kansas.

Chow!
