    Well guys, I represented CK5 well, I'll put it that way.

    I don't know what place I got, in fact, I will not know until I get the March 2005 issue of Four Wheeler. They only revealed 1st-3rd place, which I don't exactly agree with, but oh well, nothing I could do.

    I trashed my water pump bearings in the hill climb which was no big deal, we got it fixed (my crew did).

    I did pretty well in the hill climb, I got a 2:36, which I thought was pretty respectable. This event was a blast, I went FIRST which was somewhat nerve wrecking but it was fun.

    I destroyed my 1350 CV from high angle in the mud pit which pretty much ruined my weekend. It was not binding, it just basically exploded from torque as far as I'm concerned. I can't wait to hear what Jesse has to say, I'm sure he'll take good care of me.

    As for the obstacle course, I finished. We threw a joint in the front shaft as it was and I was able to finish with a pathetic time.

    In the rocks the judge DQ'd me after 5 minutes because he didn't think my spotter was a member of my crew. We were doing great and the people from Four Wheeler had allowed him to join my crew as he spent all night saturday night fixing my front shaft so I would have one to run. He was not allowed later on to be on my crew and so I only made the rock course about 1/2 way. I also went first in this event, and later on they knocked a tree down that was in the way, allowing all the compeditors that went later than me to complete the course where the rest of us got hung up in one spot.

    In the buzzard's roost I couldn't have asked for a better time. I blazed through it. I took the winch cable for the steep decent even though I probably didn't have to, I did this because I knew I wasn't going to win so I wasn't going to destroy my rig trying. I was told my time was 7:08 which wouldn't make me win it but it was very respectable with many people getting timed out at the 13 minute time limit. I honestly couldn't have asked for a better run than that, I got a ton of air for the camera as I crossed the finish line and finished off what was left of my front driveshaft.

    I had a blast, although I took a lot of breakage and this competition was very difficult. There were a lot of very well built trucks there, some that I would say should not have been there because they were far from road-legal, but either way, it was a great experience and I can't wait to see my rig in the magazine.

    If anyone has any further questions post up and I'll give you details.

    Total carange:

    One left rear tow rig tire that looked like brand new and was checked and had 80 psi in it that morning (blew out)

    One water pump

    One $523 high angle front driveline

    OK
    Here they are

    [​IMG] Starting line of the mud bog
    VERY short video as my camera shut off (battery) (Right Click Save As, Quicktime) 2 seconds of Tims run in the Mudbog

    [​IMG] 4 handed steering
    [​IMG] The Money shot coming off the cliff
    [​IMG] Here's where it stopped, I missed the big air pic trying to keep up running down the side of the trail, he finished before I could get to the end gate /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
    Tims 2wd Exit from the pit at the end of the Buzzards Roost (right click save as, Quicktime)
    [​IMG] This is the entry area (right) and exit hole (left)
    By the way people talked I suspect Tim's exit was bigger than this /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif (right click save as, Quicktime) /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    I only made it a few hours each day so I only have pics of one event each day. I believe they ran three the first day and 2 the second. Show wasn't organized real great for spectators (looooooooong time between events made for a long day) and the first day people where parking in the dunes making it hard to get to the actuall parking area. Organization could have been a little better, the participants where a good selection of vehicles, I got to meet a few and everyone was very cool. People where helping each other in between events and event staff was pretty cool as well. /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif

    Congrates Tim /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    we painted the truck last sat ,or was it sunday me,tim ,and joez

    it had to be cool -olive drab- paint held up well only real body damage was a lil from the rock crawl on the left side front of the bed not bad, the truck held up well ,except the shaft. But we do owe thanks to a guy named jesse from badlands for using his free timne to help us wrench and fix the shaft . -phil- /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif Good job. No event is ever without problems and complications. Sounds like you did really well despite those. I doubt anything I have could make it through any of those trials.
