|When I first started racing I had no money. I had a 2008 Honda Civic LX with a Harbor Freight chinesium special trailer I built to tow my shifter kart to the track. I would pull up wo the track next to semi trucks filled with professional mechanics and prepped karts and Senna wannabies from Europe. Driving that trailer through Boston was killing it - so after a season of being real ridiculous I upgraded to my 2011 4.0L auto Ranger.
She was a beast - a former cable company truck with helper springs and a 7ft bed. I used that truck to tow 20ft boats, race trailers, cars, and it got me through college mostly issue free (she ate both u-joints and front wheel bearings). I drove that truck all through college and into my first year as an engineer. I crashed it into a snowbank at 40mph showing off my "great" racing skills to impress some girl, which coined the nickname "The Danger Ranger". The front bumper was crooked after that and I bent it back into place with a floor jack, other than that no damage. I loved that truck, and I had to get rid of it when I moved from shifter karts to cars. Forever in my memory - long live the Danger Ranger
If you were wondering - the shifter kart was a 6 speed sequential that did 0-60 in 3 seconds and cornered at 3-4 G's

Cars for the track - trucks everywhere else
