    Here are the pics of my rig on its side in the esculator. I know that I talked about this on the carnage run, but I thought that you guys would like to see some more "sheetmetal roulette" as Firefighter184 puts it.The funny thing is that I have been through there a ton of times before and not had any problems.This time I think I was more worried about the outdoor channels cameras than I was about picking my line. OOPS.

    Fun to watch people do this one! I saw this pic on Pirate today... I'm betting that he didn't get all the way up, but he's got some guts, and the good humor to refer to his rig as his "modifed tahoe".:laugh:

    Cool pics.:thumb:

    I think that obstacle looks a lot worse in person.

    That obsticle is very interesting to say the least. We had 3 or 4 rigs make it up the escalator with ease and we had one rig that couldn't make it up on 2 different occasions. He ended up in a bad spot and it just wouldn't go up. There was no real rhyme or reason to it but it is all about catching the right line. I believe that the wider your front axle is (axle and rim backspace) the better off you are there. All the rigs including the one that couldn't make it up were setup pretty well and had very experienced drivers. Looks like you had a good time.
