    Cool First timer... Be gentle ;-)

    First timer to Gold Rush and I am stoked about participating in GRV. Looking for any advice or words of wisdom from the long-term members.

    Iím a 30-year vet of the concert touring industry so Iím familiar with life on the road.

    I love speed but I like comfort as well so I am building my custom Hennessey Performance VelosiRaptor800. This thing will have switchable twin turbo, stiffened suspension to solidify the Fox Shocks at high speed on road and several other modifications to create a tough, but spacious speed machine. I donít want to lag behind the EuroSuperCar Pack.

    Iíve already outfitted her with FabFours solid steel bumpers front and back and more toughness all around. She has a headache rack right out of the Canadian Yukon fit for running down moose in the road without a hesitation. Is is also covered in Recon LED all around with enough to light up the night in a big way. In matte black wrap, like to call her my Ninja Zombie Killer as the key to my Zombie response teamÖ

    I read that Unique was the key so I hope Iíve done that and Iím ready to bring it and have a great timeÖ

    Sounds like a great car!. But I don't see the comfort in that thing all race truck. Will be nice to meet you on GRV. The only advice I can give is get as much sleep as you can before hand lol.

    Misleading thread title, but you'll have a great time.
    "I had a list of the top 10 ways to open a beer without a bottle opener. I got to number 4 before the funeral director closed the coffin lid for good. I asked him later if I had been the first person to ever "boo" during a eulogy. He said no, but he would have preferred if I'd shown up at 3pm so that I could have attended the correct funeral."

    Sorry. I tend to be sarcastic at times but that doesn't come though in text...

    Glad to have you on board, you will have a time of your life. Extra underwear, Cash and Credit Card is all you will need we will supply the rest. Oh and a pair of formal shoes because in Sin city they dont let you in any of the clubs without it and maybe a helmet if you plan on joining us for the drag race. I think I was there last year but its all a blur I could be mistaking.

    Sounds like the best sort of memories. The 80s and 90s on tour are the same way for me.

    With all i;m putting into this truck, I have to drag race it. That's a must.

    Vegas. I LOVE the Vegas nightlife and partake at least once a year...

    Sounds like an amazing trip!!!

    Just getting started. She leaves for Hennessey Performance in Texas for the performance mod, then she gets her wrap. The wrap example is just a first rough draft I threw together today..., Raptor1.jpgRaptor2.jpgRaptor3.jpgRaptor-Vette.jpg
