Yes. But there were people everywhere. There was always a group either in front of us or behind us. Everytime we stopped someone would drive by and make sure we were good. And we did the same for others.

I assume you trailered this out there, was the drive worth the wheeling? Some day I will make it out for this, but I hear a lot of people say it's so busy the wheeling isn't that great so you would be better off flying and getting a rental.

It looks like you got some business exposure by bringing the roxor which is totally understandable. If that wasnt the case would you make the drive out there or fly?

There is plenty of wheeling and from what I could see, all the big trails were open when they weren't racing. Just be cautious of the racers pre running. Monday, Tuesday and Thursday alot of people were out wheeling the rocks. None of them seemed overly busy in the morning. Plus, people will wheel them all night long, they seem to get pretty wild then.

It is a long boring drive. Having 2-3 drivers would be a big help.

Is the wheeling worth the drive? Without a doubt.
Is there enough wheeling during race week? I've heard conflicting answers.

Haven't done much with the Roxor other than use it around the house.

I did add Ruff Stuff pinion guards and Yukon drive flanges up front.



Also took it out to the mounds for a quick trip. Didn't take many pictures. Had a great time on the rocks and exploring all the trails. Been a long time since I've been there. The rocks have really gotten grown over. Next up is the Detroit 4 Fest this weekend.

We had a lot of fun out there. We used to go to the mounds every weekend as teenagers. Now we go once every 5 years

No tune yet. Seems to have plenty of power for the crawling i've been doing. It will need a stronger clutch at some point though.
