Makes me appreciate my doors a bit more too, although I don't think I would have tried the leg thing...

Mine would

Follow-up Post:

On a second note, if he didn't use his brakes he could've backed his way out w/o rolling.

Yeah tell that to Mike. He kept stalling my D90 on every decent since he kept his foot on the brakes

True, but you stalled it just as much as me, and then after you told me not to use the breaks when going down hill. But on the next hill my spotter told me to slow down so I had to use the breaks. I have a video of me driving your 90 that YOU took on my camera to prove this! Your 90 stalls real easy, I can almost stop mine in first low before it stalls.

Mike, it was great to meet you at the rally! Yousef, that is funny telling mike to use the brake--all I see you use is the accelerator! ;-)

Dude, whatever. I only stalled it twice on that obstacle with the zillion feet drop off on one side and barely enough room for my truck to squeeze in. Plus the reason I stalled it is b/c I was hugging that big rock big time

He has pics! I took them on his camera, he to me Sunday night when we were going through the pics he said there were to many of him on in that spot, I said hey I only took pics when you stalled, so there was only 4 or 5 pics

So post up some pics Mr. Antibrakes! PS send them to me if you need them resized.

Oh and we are sorta still on track here as Yousef almost rolled once the day before but he saved it by stalling and rolling backwards
