    I saw that before , one of the reasons I was leary to try it .

    Fred talked me into it , and If I had a front locker for when I lifted the tire at the top , I would of walked right up it unassisted :D

    Ouch!

    Looks like maybe The driver should have throttled it and brought the rear end back behind the front. He got into trouble when he hit the brakes and let it roll back. At least that's how it looked to me. Any thoughts on how to drive out of a situation like that w/out rolling it?

    Yeah, I wondered if reverse and a little bit of finesse would have gotten him out of it. The angle in the first video makes it hard to tell. That's why I wasn't sure if he should have hit the skinny pedal hard and swung it around, or backed up. Either way, stopping and waiting was not a good thing to do.

    I showed that to my wife a couple of years ago, and it took a lot of talking to get her to go wheeling the first time. Finally got her to go this year for the first time. Tellico....................she was very nauseous after the first half hour or so. But.................the second time we went, a couple of months later, again at Tellico, she actually enjoyed it. :laugh:

    If it's a grey K5 (sorry dial up here) that rolls down PSH, and is the one I'm thinking of... BEADLOCKS :thumb:

    If it's the one I'm thinking of, the drivers rear tire unseats a bead, and over it goes. I remember seeing that vid back in 98 or so.

    Well from the looks of it , my opinion is he took the wrong line , stopped , and got on it too hard . He was going to go over anyway .

    This is the right line clicky
