Some of the first footage is crazy thinking about people going through the Baja with basically no suspension. I had no idea Funco had been around so long. Their rails are so unique and you can always tell them apart from the others.

Good Video.

Great Race Family

I have been racing with and against the Funco/George family for over 20 years. In the 80's they developed air bag suspension and actually were awarded a contract from the military to develop it. More recently I find myself wanting to beat them badly with the race Teryx. I have the utmost respect and admiration for Gill George and family and seeing that video makes me realize that the George's are an icon in the offroad industry and i am proud to say I have raced with them.
