You are an idiot. You consider yourself an offroader while you try to use the traction your suspension and tires give you, all the while trying to work as a team with your spotter to maneuver through difficult obstacles without spinning a tire or tipping over. If you would really pay attention, you would know that bouncing over the top of the obstacles with your foot to the floor while hanging on with all your might is the ONLY true form of wheeling. Idiot......

I'm happy to be a baby in your eyes. In the mean time, I enjoy watching you break your junk. Keep up the good work.

I remember when "crawling for babies" was used with XRRA.... And I don't think that turned out all that well..

I think rock bouncers will be out in a few years.. Ultra 4 is where it's leading tooo....

yea thats why there is like 4 to 6 ultra 4's showing up at the races other then koh.
they have over 20 rock bouncers at most every event down south.
a rock bouncer is 30 to 60 grand.25 bucks to enter a class. ultra 4 is 100 grand plus and a grand to enter a class. plus the koh land is a maybe every year.
i'll stick with the good ol boys...

how many trec races have they had with over 10 rigs? every time i have looked at the results it is 6 to 8 rigs other then the qualifier.

i dont disagree, ultra 4 is awesome, wish i could run it.i dont make enough money though.
so i gotta hang out with the poor southern folk and drink beer.

I want to go watch the rock bouncers at Curly's & Char's. It would be fun to watch a timed event from the bottom of the stairs to the top of the mountain. Should be lots of flops 3/4 of the way up where everyone winches.
