Cale, GRK does not build rails. The guy you are talking about is Chris from UPM His number is 514-0285
He is also called UPM1 on here. His stuff is top notch, He builds long travel and Race buggies, He owns both.
He is also the Canadian dealer for Fox shox.

That being said , I am selling my Pinto powered rail with 4 mikinu side draft carbs, I GPS'ed it on the sand at 97MPH pretty fast for a rail. It is mid engine with a Terry Hodgsen tranny, Corbeau seats, Fox racing shox on all four corners, Paddle tires, Razor back fronts, CNC pedals, disc brakes, Hydrulic clutch, aluminum wheels, steering brake,Most of the work was done by UPM,  I want $11,000.00 I have about $15,000 into it,

Me ,my brother Cory, and bugsmell made a trip out to UPM1s house last night..hung around for a good while..got the low down on all the rail stuff...my brother bought a pocket bike off him

he is the guy to talk 2, but i dont want to buy a pre built car..and really..even though i know pre built is the cheaper route to go..i wanna do my own..or at least pick and choose what goes into it and have a real rail builder do the frame..

it sounds like he can turn the baja into what i want it to be..i wish i had the right tools...but i dont..so i need to have someone do it 4 me..

really though i want a rail frame, race preped rail frame..and it looks like the only way i can get that is to have one built from scratch to work with all my parts..

then spend 6 grand on shocks :)
