I was too busy watching Jess explore the unused portion of the track.

Thanks for posting the videos Jim. I had no idea the start was such a cluster!

Sweet pictures and video!

I am a bit surprised to see some of those cars struggling with that ledge....i would assume it's because it was so wet?

Seems to me like one of those ledges you have to hit just right. Too fast and it pops the front end up and you lose all momentum. Too slow and you just don't make it. They all struggled with it last year too. Some cars struggled a lot with it. I think suspension tune has a lot to do with it too. Some front ends absorb the bump and keep momentum while others just throw it straight up in the air.

I thought the same thing. I don't think anyone in our group even spun a tire when we were down there last. Watching Casey struggle in the cherokee though shows the traction issues they were having. Probably more dug out now with all the full throttle assaults.

You guys are missing a big factor in racing. Due to the high speed content, all of those guys are running 20 psi, give or take a couple. Take your trail rig down there with 20 psi & see how you do. I doubt any of you will make it. I also doubt you didn't spin a tire. I crawled it on Friday but broke traction to do it.

Almost everyone made it on the first lap. As it got tore up, muddy & wet, it got progressively worse.

So it was 2012, but I had so much traction with the LTBizzles that I couldn't keep the engine running. Then I didn't spin a tire. Maybe you need LTBizzles instead Just because you struggle doesn't mean other people are always lying.

Pretty cool to see how much "larger" the wall is now vs that video. No doubt it looked challenging. If Jim Burgundy says it's difficult, it's difficult.

We drove right up it this spring with 0 issues this spring. I understand it's racing and i understand it was about the worst possible conditions....just making an observation....didn't mean it to a negative comment

I did like the fact that you created a 16 car pile up.

I don't know if it is worse or not. Each day is different. The key is you conquered it when you were there. Whether I broke traction & you didn't, we were both at low pressure. The big difference for the racers is the higher pressure.
Next time you go give me an invite & we'll play.
