Also forgot to mention the Baja 1000. They may not be the best journalists, but they're the ones we have.

I ran a light blue tint for most of the race- it didn’t show dust nearly as much as clear. I’m a convert, all the Scott, Smith, and Oakley’s I have from over the years are gonna hit the trash.

I was pleased with everything I took, but these things stood out as doing their job extremely well. Thanks to all the companies for their help with the adventure!
Which model did you use? The Deserts seem to be like hens teeth.

Definitely a good modification, more oil is always better, and it can't hurt to get rid of some heat. I do think it was part of the vapor locking issue, as the L/S fuel line ran right on top of the oil cooler (which was hot). ...
Ned, I searched all over their site and the web for this one, and couldn't find a thing. Any more info on this one?

At the current conversion rate, looks like $850 or so US dollars. Wow not a lot of details for a part that is not cheap.
