We did a night run this Sat out at TM.We had a total of 9 rigs.Eric had to bail early since he was having steering issues.Its a Tacama thing,you would'nt understand:neener: Larry ended losing power to his injectors on the end of CD.It was to heavy for him to winch forward or get pulled with about 200 lbs of water in every tire,42":D So we(sort of:xzzz: ) ended working on it all night and morning trying to get it off the trail.We managed to pull it with Jim's dad's rig back to camp in the morning.It was one long night thats for sure.Here are some pics I got of our adventure;)enjoy

lol :D , oh wait, I have similar ones coming :eek: . But hey, when they are cheaper than the stock looking pos's, and you know you are probably just going to break them again, you buy what's cheapest.




Eric and I have now both found out why hydro assist (at a minimum) is necessary with 40's, locked front, and high stress/load turning.

He actually lost power to his injectors and we couldn't find the problem.He called me yesterday and said the module that is mounted on top of coil took a shit.Its running now.
It was just a pain in the ass to winch over the last ledge with 42s and lots of water.He ended letting the water out and winched to the top of mountain and had Jovan pull him at same time.Jovan ended breaking a rear shaft trying to pull.Tough night man.

2. Did anyone make the big fall on CD2?

Answers:

1. Larry only has water in his front tires.

2.Larry and I made the big fall on CD2

3.It is Carlos.He is known as the new and improved wheelin machine.
