Jim and Beefy did, we hit the tight and twisties and ran out of time before we got back to the rock courses. Jim laid the smack down on the course more then once. Beefy didn't fair so well.

Broke the center pin in the CV on the front driveshaft. Broke trans mount...we think. Flattened a fender and something odd is going on with the upper link on the front. Maybe a blown joint. Front axle was rolling quite a bit thus blowing the driveshaft.

Video will be coming sometime tonight.

Yea pretty much what Tim said something weird going on with that upper link allowing a bunch of axle wrap in the front. Between that and breaking the trans mount again I don't blame the drive shaft for breaking. Just too much angle, the rear shaft was fine it looked bent because the entire drive line was moving about 4" side to side due to the trans mount issues. Looks like I have some work to do before SnoFari

Worst part of the day was my dad's rig tho. It broke getting on the trailer and we didn't even realize it drove all the way down there to find out he has no 4x4.

Oh and that slab... I didn't see any problems with it nice and easy

That was as far as Beefy made it before hearing clunks in the front end and the upper link slop. Jim was the only one to run the woods course, and he did it twice. There was about 12-15 people the first run and about 20-30 the second run watching. There were cameras and video out but noone seems to want to post them.

It is refreshing that there is a local spot that is considered to be "too hard" for people to even try. There shouldn't be anyone bitching about everything around mid-michigan being too easy that's for sure.

I am hoping the pics of Jim on the course the first time will show up in the two trackers forum then I can them here. I didn't bring a camera so I only took a couple with my phone that I already posted. And most the CTOR guys got there late after Jim was done on the course so they missed out. I wanted to try it, but not to early in the day. Unfortunately we spent alot of time in the twisties and didn't have enough daylight to get back before close. Saved it for next time I guess.
