    About mid-video where that one buggy goes stupid and the people scatter like a grenade is between them cracked me up. :rotfl:

    For those of you that have never seen a rock crawling comp, this is a must-see.

    That's pretty HARDCORE! I noticed quite a few of them had rear steer, I never knew that rear steer was so popular. Or is it just the pros who can afford it? :thinking:

    Rear steer is quite popular now, the crowds love it, so it's here to stay, and I like it.

    Lots of critics don't, but screw them....I love a good rig with rear steer.

    I was able to take a ride in a buggy with rear stear of thanksgiving weekend. It is awsome! I would love to get it on the Blazer, but the only way it would hold up under it is to go to Rockwells. Maybe some day.

    Amazing manoverablity. (sp?)

    Actually, I would rather have that than the rockwells... but I think I could more than likely afford the Rockwells.


    What was the finaly cost of a camo 60?

    I want to say something like 17,000. Eventually I'm puting cutting brakes on. I'd rather have front and rear steer mogs than Rockwells.

    Around $13K-$15K....

    Although I think a regular 60 with CTM's and some 4340 shafts woudl work good. That would be alot cheaper.

    Late model Quadrasteer pickups , find one wrecked and get the rear steer 60 off it . All of the Quadrasteers , including 1/2 tons have a Dana 60 , the drawback is the CV joint and the amount it steers , but you can use a combination of that and front 60 stuff to make a rear steer Blazer .......... well those of us ( definitely NOT ME ) with money could I quess :xmas:

    Quadrasteer doesn't steer far enough to even be worth using.
