    Well we didn't survive the course!! After getting up into the course there was a very loud bang as I was hammer down. Then there was no more front wheels spinning but lots of driveshaft spinning. Most likely snapped the pinion gear. But we beat a rear steer buggy that couldn't even get all 4 wheels in the course!!!!! Of course we were going up against the single seat buggy's one of which was running 54" Michelins. His tires were as tall as my hood!!
