I have seen and delt with alot of cars before bro that have been cut and abused by others. I have seen these cars after they have exchanged hands a couple of times and generally (especially in Omaha) guys came up on a chunk of change threw a car together to hit some corners and beat the shit out of it. Thier money runs out and they sell it.
I would advise ya to start afresh with a virgin car...and if you have never owned a lifted auto start witha basic setup. Get the feel of it and just keep adding and upgrading. You will be much happier in the long run and you can than say it is truly..."yours."
If you are in Omaha I would go ahead and give First Class Customs a call bro or visit thier shop. They have the most expierence of any shop in Omaha with thier main hydro guy sitting on 15 + yrs in the game.
Also ......my condolences on tu padre....god bless...........Ro

Never understood that one, but I hear it alot. The only thing I learned by getting a basic setup is I should of got a competition setup.

Actually bro.......What I meant is that for some one who has never hit a switch utilizing a three pump setup (now he didnt mention the number of batteries) there is A TON of shit that can and more than likely will go wrong in short order.
It is much easier to get the feel of "hitt'n em".......and actually learning the sound and smell of what is right and wrong on a low voltage set up than one that will fry motors as soon as you hold the switcha second too long.

God bless..........................Ro

definately some smart shit... i have had my setup for a year n a half now, 2 pumps 8 batts at 48volts front and back... and i can truely say that it was so much wiser do have done it like this.. especially with the smells n sounds... you'd be amazed how much you can learn about hydros after you have them in your car for a couple months... but now i can definately say i am ready for a FULL setup... this winter its going down

My fellow club member One Luv can get doowwwnnn also bro and he is only 45 minutes or so out side of Omaha. Got to personally vouch for what I have seen of his work and it is definitely a step of above what 99% of the other "shops" are doing here in this area. I got alot of pics of his work on his own car bro and some of our other club members rides.
BEst wishes and god bless.....Ro
