Shit, I'm there already and I don't race lol. Showed up with the intent of taking it easy and keeping the truck around and moving and the fawker still failed and spent half the day parked lol. But really it is kinda hard to forsee the pitman arm shaft seal suddenly blowing with no warning lol.

Atleast it blew when the wife was driving but she still blames the mechanic .

Here's Joe Z (joescamaro67) on Big Ugly making it look way too easy. This was his second time up and around the hill climb. The first time happened so fast nobody was able to get it on video. Gotta love the coilovers and MTR's (awesome driving skills too)

Here's your redemption vid

Corey (RioGrande) kicking the 4cyl in the nuts and making the 35" MTR's work. Tires 1 - U-joint 0. Time to make that last upgrade. (The tree did provide for a little bit of traction) I like it when he planted the front bumper right into the side of the hill.

Here's me taking several attempts at the right side of the hill (no success) only to easily bump up and over the left side. I still don't think it makes sense to be able to easily climb the steepest wall/ledge/face, whereas what I thought would have been the easy side (at least for Joe), was so hard. But, man, it was fun trying

You guys must have hit Big Ugly after we wore it down and made it easy for you.

If we hit it after you, I'm pretty sure it was tore up a little more It was really dug out at the bottom.

You're right. It needs a tuneup.

I drove my stock D30 all over the park and never broke anything. Even have done lots of the rock courses. YES you should be careful on big rocks, but keep the HP down and you will do fine.

Thank you for that. Had you been actually stuck, I would not have pulled you from your cage. Learning is half the battle, looks like you're on top of that and it's appreciated.
