That thing should rip with that engine, gearing, and only 35s on it. I know what you mean about the safety devices. I wore my motocross helmet and goggles the first day and my streetbike helmet with shield the second day. Whole new kinda wheelin' out there.

I was just curious what other people were getting for top speed, or if they even tried. I know some of the $$$$ rigs that are pushing 600+HP will barely top 120 MPH if the driver has the balls to hold it. I had to try, even though its pretty dangerous. 90.0 was all she had at the end of the back lakebed. I think these big, heavy Trepadors didn't help much. I was told that it would hit close to 100 with nearly bald Krawlers on it.

Never thought I would ever be saying I drove 90 MPH in a rock crawler across a dried up lake bed in the middle of the desert in California.
