I'd like to see some vids of it on the rocks.... but would also like a simple vid of you lifting it 1 tire at a time to see how the axles swing/twist. Maybe I'm just expecting something amazing out of a simple operation, but just wanna see it in action.

Very innovative idea, and well executed.

No vids at the last comp due to the terrain. But our next comp is this weekend. I hope to have someone capture vids of my rig.
Mike, hit me up at the comp, I'll shoot your runs for ya. Maybe Todd can put us on the same course, so there aren't any conflicts. It would be nice to see some footage of your rig working the rocks for a change Maybe that will encourage you to get the vid put together quicker....Hehehe:-P:-P

Lets just say the crawl gods weren't looking down on us that day. :-(

I have started editing vids. Hope to have them up soon.

I ran second on my first course, and the start gate was at the top of a 5ft pretty steep wall.........and Joseph drove it down so clean too.......I decided to see how much cushion my lid could give me at the bottom


Patiently awaiting the vid Mike

Well. I finally got some vids of my rig thanks to Nathan.
This shot is on course 2 he was able to shoot. Its pretty uncut. I also added the shot that Torry was able to shoot for me on course 3.

Force-1 Run

Nice run Mike, and Kudos to you for taking vids of our comps all these years, after shooting only a couple of runs, I know my back hurt

Rig looks good Mike. Wish I could afford to hit up more of the west-side comps.

Thanks for the good words guys.
This is the most stable rig I've built so far. With that said I tried adding 1/8inch lifts below the wire stays so that I could gain a tad more clearance.
I figured with how stable she was on the sidehilling, I could afford to loose a little CG for some clearance. WRONG!!!
This changed the whole performance of the rig drastically. So off they went.

After our Crawl for Cash this weekend she'll be going under the knive again for a nitro tranny (lower gears) and hopefully replace the existing dig setup to my home fabbed one I've been testing on my 4linker.

Stay tuned.

Excellent, I didn't think it would give that much articulation! and your vid is the best explanation for why anyone would want to use a dig (I am new and even after searching didn't get it... I do now!)
