    Sucks, here at work they have that site blocked out. I will have to try from home.

    Go Michigan!

    Ken,
    It is a fairly new site, but as more people from Michigan sign up, the more info there will be, so don't hesitate to sign up [​IMG].

    wohoo, I will be relocating to Michigan soon and I thought I was going to be a freak out there. It seem nobody has built up trucks (or at least what I saw), and even fewer have rock turcks. It'll be nice to have a venue to go to and talk flat land trucks.

    Whats wrong with big and wide?

    There are LOTS of wheeling vehicles in MI. No rock crawling though. WEll, at least very few. Just about all mud and trail ride vehicles. Where are you moving to? I am in south east MI.

    Ken, there is some rock crawling, but it is "staged" for lack of a better word. Some of the trails we run really give your suspension a work out though, it is definitely good if you can keep all the tires on the ground [​IMG]. So a little flex doesn't hurt.

    When did I ever say flex isnt good? All I may have ever mentioned is that this ultra flexy tube rock buggies are not all that valuable around here. Flex is very important, thats why I am looking for more!!

    I will be moving to the Grand Rapids area around Feb or March for a job transfer. I have my K5 rigged for rock crawling but I guess it'll work in mud too. Any snow yet?

    You should have a good time. Differant kind of wheeling, but equally as fun. Not much of anything as if snow yet, in the lower peninsula. UP has a lot.

    You should have a good time at Silver Lake sand dunes. They are only about 1hr north of Grand Rapids. Lots of good times there.

    We'll have to hook up!!!

    Whoa! I didn't say that you said anything in perticular, I was just making a statement. Sorry if I came across that way [​IMG].

    No, I actually just put it in storage during Thanksgiving weekend. Its still the same as it was in June. I will probably start tearing into it around Christmas time. I have a few days off from work. I can't seem to find any time to work on it!
