As good as any date...i'll put it on the calendar, can't wait.

I still think keep simple, keep it extreme and not so long(4hrs is a lot of a beat down). Especially since its the first one...

Seriously? People are afraid of 4 hours of wheeling?

Curly, I guess I'm one of the few that want it to be a challenge.

x2 - Having a race that tests both the rig and the driver is better then a short race to see who has the "fastest" rig. It takes skill (and luck) to keep a rig together for multiple laps around a long course.

well erin you should get everyone you talked to too voice there oppinion on this.I would like to see it more on driving ability then horse power,as i said in a earlier post if you drive full throttle threw the whole thing your rig isn't going to make it (no matter if it's 4 hrs or 1 hr). i have a course in mind already i just have to run it and see how long it takes ,it probally isn't going to take 4 hours i'm gonna guess it will probally take a couple to complete, if yours or whoevers rigs stay togther..i hope i don't piss anyone off but it's a endurance race not a roc course style of comp so that = laps and time but i also think 4 hrs would end up to long at least for the first one.So erin tell the people you are talking to to put there big boy panties on after all this is MORNINGWOOD OFFROAD where things are always hard.
how long where you thinking? voice your thoughts now or don't complain later lets hear from everyone

Your style comp.

OH, and that's the most I have ever seen Curly type at one time.

the rock bouncers are sad they will have to do more than point and shoot and might even need to fill up with fuel.

I Have done MY 16 hrs at twisted! Morning wood is a awsome place and what ever you do Curly will be cool. That being said you do not have 2 tracks for trails.(river beads ,stair step,f**k most all of it is extreme and most cant finish twisted ! Take 5 rigs down river bead and 1 will not make it ,holy parking lot. Just my .02 cents only worth .01 though Mentaly ready to do left side of helmet hill we will see about getting it done

hey how many laps did you do at twisted before you destroyed your rig? never saw you race it again...

i love wheeling and i love curlys place.we have done 4 hours many times at a easier track and most people dont make it. mike covell finished koh but only made 2 laps at twisted.
so do what you want curly but i just think you will have a better turnout making it shorter.

I'm planning on showing regardless if it's short or long. I just wanna wheel. It should be awesome no matter what. I'm just a fan of the long grueling punishment type of event that tests every aspect of wheeling. Mud, rocks, trees, high speed stuff, keeping your shit together, having the proper tools and replacement parts and being able to fix your own equipment on the trail.
