Title: Welcome Brody
Post by: zorproducts on November 01, 2018, 06:28:21 AM
Hey everyone please welcome Brody and his parents Marc and Carmen. From what I hear we have a pretty excited offroader here. As with all Sponsorships if you want to donate a few dollars towards product I am not so proud to say no. I am personally getting a little emotional when reminded of previous young off-roaders that ZOR has sponsored. I have seen some pictures of Brodyís wheeling abilities and I am impressed. Or should I say jealous?

Hey guys what's up I'm Marc Brody's dad. This is his samurai he and I built. When Brody was 8 I told him if he could drive this tin top home "a couple miles down a dirt road" that I'd buy him his own.  Well I told him how to shift and use the clutch he started it up and away he went.  I stoped him at the end of the road and he asked how to shift gears to go faster...
   So needless to say I bought him his own zuk.  He drove it for abut 9 months or so with no power steering and got his butt kicked. So after new years he got a flat tire while we were camping. It went into pthe garage and we got a Lil carried away.. We literally built this out scrap parts and old stuff I had tucked away in the garage. All the body panels are old street signs. I had a extra t case "I'm a Sammy part hoarder" and I had some coil overs off an abandoned project that went no where. A friend owns a Lil fab shop so I dug through his scrap bins and salvaged whatever I could. I picked up a used set of axles on a trade with my brother with a set of 35''s attached (Score). It's been a blast we wheel often and this kid loves the sport! Hope to see ya all out there on the trails!

Hi Everyone, I'm Brody aka Outlaw Sami Kid. I am 9 years old and in 4th grade. I'm excited to meet you all! I've loved wheeling for as long as I can remember. My dad bought me my first Samurai when I was 8 years old. It was a stick shift (dad taught me to drive one when I was 7!) and he told me if I could drive it home by myself, I could have it. Well... I MADE IT HOME! Now I have a custom built lime green (my favorite color) Samurai buggy that my dad built for me (I helped a little). I've wheeled it all over Cougar Buttes and Calico. I'll be out at the Hammers soon testing my skills! I can't wait!!

Sponsored folk get big discounts on Trail-Gear and ZOR products.

LIME GREEN huh? I heard that you liked bright colors of the green variety.

Just got some new Yukon drive flanges for Brody's rear axle. Should be back in business for thanksgiving at the hammers! Gotta get the flanges installed and build a new track bar mount. Hopefully I'll get his new steering done and his 40''s mounted before then too but we will see if time will let us get it all done..

Hey kiddo, why you lay on your side to take pic's? lol

Just funnin' with ya. Looks like some good stuff. Now go give dad grief that he took the pic's at the wrong angle.


And remember, this is a light hearted forum. Any bad comments send them to any mods please.

Post by: zorproducts on November 07, 2018, 10:45:48 PM
Send me a picture of the side of the samurai where the door hinges would go. Also where the door latches would go. Unless Dad is buying Yukon wholesale, he doesnít grasp sponsorship. But then he did build this entire bad boy Outlaw rig for $20

Not to many moderators around but admins are phloop, still zukin, zorproducts and my other user MY.

Dad definitely paid wholesale..lol dad has accounts at trail gear, Yukon "randys", and transamerican.. the drive flanges I had to get before this weekend and I help out at a buddies fab shop "Camp Rock Fab" here in Lucerne Valley CA. I order parts for the shop and get to pay his cost for all our stuff we need. Lol
 The door hinges are stock hinges that I cut to make for easy swap between full and half doors. The latchest are just small tubing that we slide a piece of round stock through to keep them shut. I really need to revamp that set up but we were in a hurry and just whipped something together. I'll snap some pics this weekend when I'm installing the new flanges and new track bar mount...
  We just cut the new mount on camprocks torchmate plasma table. One of the perks to having a buddy with a sweet cnc plasma table...lol

Some pics from king of the hammers 2019.  He did great he wheeled with alot of people and absolutely blew their minds. He drove around people clogging the trail he took every bonus line he could find. He slashed a sidewall on his tire but we managed to cram 9 plugs in it and cover it with gorilla tape and was able to finish off the week. The last pic was on chocolate thunder taking the hardest line on the trail. He had it untill dad gave him some bad advice and he played it on its side. But we pushed it up rite he drove out of it and imeaditly did the trail again flawlessly and a weed the media crew that was out there.. I sure hope I find those floating around the net...
 All in all it was a great weekend I'll post more pics as I gather them up I personally didn't take many I was too caught up in the moment but family and friends have a bunch..
 Thank you everyone for the support! We are having a blast doing what we love I sure am a lucky man!
