    I'm not sure. I think I have more body flex than susp. flex right now! I think my front springs were made by i-beams-r-us. Lol...

    I'm working towards longer springs, so I wanted to ramp it to establish a base line to compare to later. I just didn't think it would do that well.

    HAHA That trail has a tendancy of doing that. Does not seem too challenging until you look away for a sec and next thing you know you are on your side. Wish I could have made it out to the Fest.

    Yup pretty much same spot different direction. That is a fun little area to play in. Sweet pics dude!

    Live in Fresno huh? I used to live in Fresburg for a long time! We'll have to meet up and wheel sometime. I've never done any of the trails up out of Fresno, didn't get my rig until moving away.
