son of a bitch
Me, Red, Ryan and his GF went wheeling to shake down Ryans rig.
Took it kinda easy in the morning to see how his buggy would do. We ran a decent amount of trails see if I can remember them.
Race connector, CV, Yellow jacket, trail8, Cemetary backwards, every line on Tombstone, Boothill, 22, Roxy's way, the quarry and :shock: Shoot the moon. I pretty much went right up, Ryan well didnt... His extra width put him in a odd spot where he had to pop up a rock. He got up the rock but slid back down cause his rear DS twisted off. It was stock tubing so not really surprised. He backed down and started pulling the DS while me and the Ginger ran the rest(which is easy now). Thanks to Ginger for throwing thefreshly dumped trash tires out of the way :roll:
Headed back and swapped a yoke on the square shaft Dopple gave me and hit the trails again. We in and ran 5, both doing the climb to the right that loops around. Got to the hill climb section and I went up the right side, then the left side, then the middle. Watched Ryan for a bit trying the right then went up it again when he backed off. He headed towards the left side while I went to come back down off the one side. Somehow my rig almost went over but I gassed out of it. By the time I stopped Ryan was up. A few secounds later we hear a loud snapping sound :roll:
Red looked around and couldnt find anything. A bit later we hear rattling noise and check again. Somehow the winch hit a rock I guess and the moutning foot broke. We were heading to crawler ridge but with no winch we headed towards the exit. Ran a few climbs in the comp area and I lost a brake line so we left.
Besides for the DS twisting off it wasnt a pretty good day. Only other issue Ryan had was his Ram mount slide once and his heims on the tie rod came loose a few times. Red got some pic's and I think Melissa got some as well
Red pic's and video's
Here are the rest of my pictures and videos.
