Was pretty damn happy with how it worked at snofari. I was pretty concerned with the road time esc. But I wasn't the only one on either of the trips friday and saturday that was limited 40 mph or less. I "might" have intentionally lined up behind peeps that had the same top speed as me, so when the group fell behind I wasn't at the lead of the fall behind .

It wasn't to bad friday with no top or doors or heat or wipers lol, saturday morning was a little rougher with the heavy snow in the am. That got pretty cold esc when the windshield started to ice over. But all in all it wasn't that bad. KyleM, alboy and myself survived the weekend, don't think their was any frost bite lol.

Took it kinda easy friday, but saturday I gave it pretty good on a rock course to put on a show lol, then at the little comp it got beat pretty good to baja'ing through a stump field. Played in the sand bowl area in 2wd flat out screaming the rpm's busting around full throttle.

And I had no breaks and no damage I am aware of .

It did great and I agree on the open top. It really wasn't that bad if you were prepared with the right layers. I had heat but it was off 90% or more of the time. I used it mostly on those times that the window started to freeze over as defrost and that's about it.

you guys where doing just fine on the road, even though I knew i could go faster it wasnt a concern, beavertown watching you kept my eyes off the speedo.


I think just about everyone in our group had to prove they could make it up the sand pit covered in ice in 2wd, i made it once but not the skinny run a few other did.

I couldn't make it in 2wd

But I agree John your rig did an awesome job.

You were laying the BEAT down to that thing on the rock course and someone looked to me and said your next. All I could say is there is no way in hell my rig would survive that kind of beating and the only reason yours was is because of the builder. Great work buddy.

Oh and my liver hates me

I left my jeep parked because I wanted you guys to wheel. Last time I wheeled with you guys, you just stood in awe when I was on the rocks and then drove away ashamed.
