Corey told me I was having trouble due to the short wheel base. So with some stacked rocks and lots of skinny pedal I got over the problem area. Jonesy had trouble since his Center Diff Lock wasnt engaging. The LR4 with us did pretty well considering it was stock with the exception of sliders and the RTT. I was waiting for those low profiles to give up a bead at some point.

If anyone was curious, four trucks showed up for our Friday morning ride and we were able to complete every trail back to back in about 5 hours, finishing before noon, and encountering almost no traffic at all. I'd say altering driving style a bit we probably could have cut at least a half hour off that overall, but we did run two trails "backwards" to avoid the climbs on Dutch John and Dickey Bell and save time. Having a fridge on board and food wrapped in foil warming on the motor was a nice touch.
Kicking around ideas to do this again, perhaps with two seperate teams. The points system worked this time, but could be refined a bit I think.

Brian,
Thanks for bailing me out with a good photo of the D's! Hey somebody ask Jonesey and Lav what they saw in that tent on the lower campsite, when they were going door to door, looing for more diesel mushroom bottles!

Anyone know what drivetrain/axles are underneath?

I don't have it from the horse's mouth or anything but I'm pretty sure it's just the BMW powered RRC minus the RRC body, plus a 109 body.

Yeah I can't remember, was it a goat or was it a dog on the other half of that "transaction"?

I just heard of big @$$ in a tent. What it was doing was not of my concern.

M3.2/ZF/LT - BMW ZF bellhousing (bolts to LR ZR) torque convertor was modified to gain lower torque and strength (I think), long tube header and only a cat (no muffler), some electronics swapped, the chassis was a lengthened (?) Disco with series outriggers added - axles were stock. All this from speaking to Ben but my memory isn't what it used to be.

Just for the record... The diesel we ended up using to create the really good plumes was less than a cup 1/3 water, 2/3 diesel, boil on coals and have an ignition source higher in the fire.
Any more was just wasted

Yes, from my understanding they did the cage...disco was damaged on top and chopped. Don't remember who he said did that part of it but whoever did, it sure came out nice...

Drew and JimmieJamz used to work together @ LR Richmond and have done lots of side jobs and engine builds together. Back in the day Drew worked @ Rovertym when they were in Midlothian Va. Drew's blood runs green.

I was @ Sarek two weeks ago and Drew was still working on the 109 getting it ready for Uwharrie.
Sorry I missed its debut.

I liked him right when I saw him... knew there was a reason. I visited with the Rovertym family for awhile ...they are sweet people. Sorry you weren't able to come out also.
