    I went wheeling Saturday 9/17 and had a blast at the local spot. A few of us got there early and I tried this mud hole that wasn't nearly this deep last time we were there.

    Anyways here is the clip. Thanks to Paul (ryoken) for hosting the clip for me! :bow:

    Yes, I am man enough to post a clip of the Burb getting winched out by a Jeep. :doah: :doah: :haha: :haha: :haha:

    :waytogo: That was great. Almost thought for a second you might get out. The Drama!! I laughed! I cried! :haha: :haha:

    :shame: OK now I'll bug you about safety... Aren't you suppossed to throw a heavy coat or something on the winch cable in case it snaps? Also standing out in the open where if it snaps could get torn in two!!! Sorry I guess thats the ol' volunteer fireman talking.

    But that was pretty cool man... :wink1:

    I'm not sure what that was. Needless to say I was a bit worried when I heard it. I first thought that it was the fan slapping the mud but the bystanders assured me that I wasn't deep enough for that.

    I did find a crack in the exhaust where the inlet on the muffler meets the body of the muffler. I bet I was blowing exhaust out which made the gurgling sound. Or maybe I had the exhaust to hot from the high RPMs that it was boiling the mud. Who knows? :dunno:

    Once I was out of the goo the noise was gone and I wheeled the rest of the day without issues. :D

    If you would have gone first, then I probably wouldn't have tried and saved a starter. :haha: :doah: :D

    Yep, two starters have met their demise. Fixing that problem has become a priority. :doah: :haha:

    There wasn't much mud at 600 Acres.....just the occasional hole. It was quite dusty following folks on the trail. :eek1:

    The Detroit works awesome!! :bow:
