We had to wait for Josh to finish work so left for Grand Bend early on Thursday evening and had asked our pit buddy to save us a spot since last year was mayhem. When we got there, we found that our buddy had fobbed us off to pit with the guys behind him – […]

2022 SOAR Racing – May Practice

First opportunity to test the new A bike was at a private practice day that Danny sorted out. I threw the bike in Danny’s trailer and we headed out the night before but when we offloaded the bikes, I found that my front triple stand hit the upper fairing so I couldn’t use it! Fortunately […]

Lynx to F250 Honcho Mods

The LED headlights on the Lynx weren’t that bright and I thought it would be cool to have a light bar so I picked one up off Amazon and attached it to the front bumper with some foam tape. Then I ran into a bit of an issue, I wanted to separate the headlights from […]

Carisma Lynx Mods

It’s too cold for painting race bike fairings in the trailer so I’ve been tinkering with the Carisma SCA-1E Lynx ORV RC crawler. I was searching around on yeggi and Thingiverse for a roof rack but then realized that it would block access to the body clips on the roof. Apparently Carisma released STL files […]

Carisma SCA-1E Lynx ORV

I was feeling bored and came across this while I was looking around local classified ads for something to tinker with. The stock ORV stickers had been removed (but not the nasty residue!) and some other stickers had been placed on the sides so I removed them and cleaned it up a bit. It came […]

2021 SOAR Racing Round 5

That’s me on 73 BTW! I’ve fallen behind with updating the site again so I’ll jump to round 5 while it’s fresh in my memory and then go back to 3 and 4 later. I got good starts in my qualifying races and managed to finish in the top 10 in both but the rear […]

2021 SOAR Racing Round 3

Last weekend we went up to MotoPark and my middle guy, Jake was out practicing a set of 3 jumps that he liked. When he decided to finish off the lap and go back to the paddock he forgot about a new nasty jump and massively over shot it to land on the up face […]
