      You need a new keyboard first; the Caps Lock seems to be stuck on the old one.

          I agree an aerowave is probably the best choice for YOU. Or you could wait for the new dynasty 500 it oughta cover all your needs for da trophy truck.

                And now down to the question, There are parts that should be tig welded and there are some that mig is great. I am in favor of tig, but it is slower and requires much more skill so it becomes more labor intensive. Also the fit up is more critical with tig. You know your skill so are you an novice, moderate welding skill or a skilled professional. Each of these will gain importance as the quality of the cage carries your life within its midst. I have seen some real crap pass tech, but typically Baja racing won't pass crap.

                So here is the base line I would recomend.

                A Dynasty 200DX would do fine for most of the job and hire out the heavier engine mounts and such, this tig is very capable through 1/4" on steel.

                If a mig is more your necesitity, then the mm210 will bring home the bang for the buck spent award.

                I own both of these machines and they will perform flawlessly in trained hands.

                Peace,

                  can you say "troll"?

                  hey pj,

                  Your answers are perfect, but he might, just might, be a troll. Let's be real quiet for a minute and see if he goes away.

                  If not, he should do what you said.

                  so there.

                      Stupid questions are fine. We have lots of answers, some stupid, some useful. If you have the budget for a trophy truck, then you have the budget for the right welding equipment for each welding task. A MIG welder is the best general machine for fabrication of most things, but a TIG machine is popular for ultra aesthetic beads or critical welds where MIG is not practical. Of course, if you have the experience to be welding on truck frames, you'll know the difference already. Your question was for suggestions of Miller equipment. It's a useless question almost without giving us a budget, though we would assume you can afford to race trophy trucks. I recommend a Millermatic 210 or 251 as the MIG. If you decide you need a TIG also I you'll probably want portable to a degree, so look at a Maxstar 200 or 300 if your new restaurant budget allows it, unless you need aluminum capability from the TIG, in which case you want the Dynasty series.

                      Mild rant follows: IN GENERAL, there is no foul language on this board, please keep it that way. Why would you walk in to a room filled with people you don't know, and talk like that?

                          You know,(IMHO)if I were going to build a race truck and was on a budget I think I would buy a good engine driven unit that I could tig and mig with. Then when at the track your good to go if (when) ya break something.
                          Good luck,

                            Bulldog:
                            The Baja isn't a track, it is an endurance race of major offroad proportions accross the most inhospitable piece of american soil. An engine drive is a good idea, but help is always a long way away.

                            Peace,

                              Well I'd say he has other things to worry about before thinking about building a baja truck that will probaly have every welded joint on the truck stressed near its limits and that is taking some welding classes and learn how to weld first. I mean he says he doesnt know s**t about welding but wants to build a race truck?
