How close was the yellow 90 to taking a rest on its side?

Did Huf slash one of the Swampers? Don't think I ever saw a tire folded up like that!

If the 3 year old is the only one snapping pix in the group then I guess we can ignore a little finger.

In my opinion everybody who received a gift from Pedro should personally say thank you in this thread. Lucky8 thanks Pedro for his generous donation to the event. With out Your support many beverages would not have been opened.

Duh.... Totally missed the whole series of photos from the weekend that were posted earlier. (Hazards of speed reading from iPhone).

That looked like a blast and all the celebrities were there. I had the ROAV business to tend to - otherwise I would have tried to go with you guys.

I am not sure I would have been comfortable driving the Stage 1 and after seeing the photos .... I may have asked to be a copilot.

.... Maybe I will go next time Wolf leaves the area for Japan ......

Not sure how you gauge that but it was not the most uncomfortable I have ever felt! Really need to reinstall my Lev-o-gauge! I know that Lav said he was nervous for me

Nope, had the rears at about 8psi this weekend and loved it! Makes for a little more uncertainty in the tippy situations but on the rocks those tires just wrap around anything. Admittedly, I think I have a slow leak in my rear LH tire so it may have been closer to 6psi by Saturday morning

I second that! I also want to thank Justin as most people would have packed it in if they broke a CV and put a hole in their front diff on the first trail of the day but he pressed on and impressed everyone with a wonderful 1 wheel drive skinny pedal show for the rest of the weekend!

We actually had everyone choose that line on the ravine just for some playtime. There were much easier lines.

Despite how the pics show it, you couldn't truly roll over - more like just lay on your slider. It was fun to see how the trucks flexed to to get up an over the tree roots.

Which reminds me, I need a soft shackle and a bottle opener courtesy of Pedro.

Cheers

...and thanks Pedro

The rollover angles are what is the most unnerving to me with these trucks. They feel top heavy to begin with, then lift 'em, etc... all the off camber stuff can feel like your driving on a 90 degree ledge. I think from way back when I remember the oops angle to be over 45 degrees of a side slope for a stock LR. Not really sure how that changes with lifts & tires, but it definitely adds pucker value for me.

Always been impressed with the guys that know exactly the points of safe vs Oh sh*t! Especially so if you know those points without having rolled it previously!

It was a great weekend, and oddly enough I had the opposite thought to Jonathon - it was one of the lightest carnage weekends at Rausch

The LR3 did great and I don't think Jeff emphasized enough how crazy it was to see Justin drag that p38 through every blue trail in the park ... in ONE WHEEL DRIVE.

And thanks for the lovely lucky 8 stainless steel "defender" bottle opener Pedro. Truly nice of you to step up like that.

I'll post what few photos I took tonight.

Jeff - that is awesome on the tires. I really wish the 35x10.5's weren't hard to find and didn't cost $2k for a set of 5. Not sure many tire sidewalls would be able to do that.

Looks and sounds like a great time. I did a tour thru RC a couple years ago without a front drive shaft but a locked rear and it was interesting to say the least - even on just the green trails. Justin is a bad ass for given 'er in 1WD. Shows how capable these Rovers are with a good driver.

Hopefully this fall I can make a trip - got some shit on the project list and might have it done by the end of summer.
