Youtube Uwharrie Rollover

This is a short film from the trail named "Daniel" @ Uwharrie two weeks ago. The disco does a flop but gets up and finishes the trail with minimal customization. The driver had his 4 year old son onboard strapped into a child seat.

No locker up front for sure.
Would it have helped? Maybe? No image of what took it to flop.
Sometimes lockers can help because you don't have to create so much momentum, sometimes they counter-help because your rig keeps going and you help up much higher than you wanted to (and flop).
Did you ever see that one? no locker would have helped:

That first video is proof that a well times photo can make even the most mundane wheeling look hard.

On the second one, it was bad driving only that led to that.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Two different clubs hold events there. CROC holds an event in April. Scheduled for 4/16-19/09 http://www.carolinarovers.org/

Old North State Holds one the third weekend in Oct. http://www.theoldnorthstate.org/

Ren Ching, CGalpin, Steinhammer, SWold, myself and a bunch of other frequenters of this board did both events this year. I love that place. Especially fun when wet.

Agreed- he went too fast.
The spotter on the second video was motioning him to do what he did and then as he realizes his mistake frantically motions in the other direction, but the truck is already to high for the driver to see him. I'd get out of the truck and kick his a$$, and then my own.
Bet the recovery f'd that jeep up a bunch more-tough spot.

Baby due in early June, April might be too close, we'll see. Everything is still snowbound or in high mud season up here then, so it would be nice to go south

April was shorts and flip flops in NC.

Going to try to make Winter Romp this year since we got nothing to play in down here last year.
