    The owner of this post drove up the entire way without winching and probably would not have needed to stop at all except for a K5 in the way......

    Yeah Ryan was having a bit of trouble. I personally think his biggest issue was traction. Those MTRs didnt impress me at all over the weekend.

    I think it was concluded that he had too much oil in his motor. He killed it at one point due to low oil pressure and added a qaurt then it started smoking out of the exhaust.

    He was also 3rd in line with the trail getting more slick with each tire pass. I don't think he did much worse than Kevin (the first K5).

    He also like to use the 6.0 - not afraid to bust em all loose just for the hell of it :D

    The 6.0l may have some oil pump pick up issues - on a ledge it started to knock a bit and he noticed no oil pressure :eek1:

    Do you see the sammi in the video? He gets it on and has maybe $1500 into. Thats new tires, buying the sammi, and the spool in the back. Its not about the bling bling, its about the fun, the good times, and the people. :wink1:

    ok. I cant really comment cuz I wasnt able to give it hell due to a few probs. I also think that I might of broke the CV at one point but I have not been able to look at it really close. Its sounds like it went out but its didnt blow out to the point that it fell out.
