Team Two Idiots
John and Scott Jordan are two brothers who are… well… idiots… John being 18 and Scott being 23. They currently reside in Las Vegas.
John heard about GAR2 as soon as he could find out, and he needed that 3 million dollar reward… without telling Scott because he wanted this to be a surprise, he immediately went on Craigslist for a tough, durable pickup… he found the Cavalry DirtRider (not even in any company lore but mk). He immediately contacted the seller, unlucky for John, the seller lived in Seattle, but their parents lived in Seattle, so he had an excuse to go to Seattle. John closed his cheap ass laptop, went into Scott’s room, in their little dinky house, “Yo Scott… I got to go to Seattle and visit our parents… want to come with me?” Scott swiftly replied “Sure, why not.”
After a full day of driving later, and a good night’s sleep, while Scott has breakfast with his parents, John goes out for some “errands”.
He quickly drove to the seller in Scott’s 2003 Crown Vic. When he arrives… he sees the DirtRider in the driveway. He walks up to the house, rings the door bell and supposedly the man selling the truck opens the door and greets John. The man says “How are you today? I assume you are here for the car?” John nods his head and the man walks John to the truck. “This is an old 85’ DirtRider, it’s a pretty reliable 5.5L V8, I got bumper bars on this, and it has ran fine with regular maintenance since I bought it new.” John asked “How much does this cost?” The man replies “Oh it’ll be 10k to take it off me.” The transaction goes through… John abandons the Crown Vic in the neighborhood. John drives back to his parent’s house and his mom and dad ask where he bought while Scott, is standing in awe at the truck. Scott asks “Why did you… WAIT WHERE IS MY CROWN VIC?!” John explains to Scott “I found out about some off-road race in South America, and if we win, we could win… 3… million dollars.” Scott says “You are joking right?” “No, it’s true…” Scott says “How can we win in this thing, it isn’t even off-road ready, the tires on it are nearly bald…” John says “We can do a bit of a ‘tune up’ with this… it will dominate the competition.” John orders 5K worth the mods.
A few days of waiting for car mods and putting them on later
“It… is done…” says John
Scott says “Now THIS can win a race…” John says “Ok, I will drive the car on some local trails and let’s see how it goes…”
A few hours later
“This thing drives amazing…” says John. Scott says “This is the most uncomfortable thing ever.”
John shouts at Scott “WHO CARES ABOUT COMFORT, WHEN YOU CAN WIN.”
The truck off-roads quite well after changing the suspension for a more off-road ready one, putting on off-road tires and a few other modifications to the engine, as it produces 272 HP and 332 ft-lbs of torque, a decent improvement to it’s regular figures. John parks it in their parent’s driveway and gazes at the off-road ready pickup…
