Sweet to see the LS motor in one of those, wonder if they used an iron block to keep weight over the front end which I would think you would want in a situation like that?

Hey Bjorn,

Thank you for creating the videos. I have been following your work on the Silverlake Sand dunes forum, and figured these guys would love it too.

Do you have any footage, or could you get any of details on the trucks? I would love to see some of the suspensions and different drivetrains. The action is great, but the details are neat too

GM's LS series motors came in Aluminum or Iron based on which one you have. The Iron block weighing about 80lbs+/- more.
