They are showing the Dakar race on Speed channel right now for anyone who is interested.
Thats some great shite! I cant wait 'till Barrett Jackson come on again.
Yaaaaaaay... I don't think I get that channel though /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif... OH well... I'll just play V-Rally 3... There are so many rally games that came out in the store I get my games at this week... I was going to buy WRC but couldn't find it, but there were 3 or 4 others... /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/burb.gif
Just got done watching it and thought to my self "i should start a Dakar thread on CK5" well ya beat me to it /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
Yeah that rally is awsome, its one of my life goals to compete in it some day...
Oh did you notice that all the cars are using BFG muds for th tires this year?
Did you see that Unimog whooping up on that little car? But of course he rolled it and I think they said the co-pilot was killed.
i doidnt think it was a unimog i thought it was a tatra or kamaz, oh well. Yeah those big trucks have around 1200hp in em /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif. And check out the suspension next time they show those going over jumps, has to be a traction beam set up they run on. But that is a great race indeed.
Where are the Americans? Are we that pathetic? I guess I'm going to have to hold up our end of the world and enter the "Toyota" when I finish it.
Well, it may not be a Unimog, but it looks like one. /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif
I know they have a hellacious suspension on em. They were getting some pretty good air in em too.
well from what i have seen rally is a bigger thing in Europe, here in the states we like big things hence the baja truck racing stuff, but someday when the luv has a 350 and tube frame ill show em all whos boss /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif
I guess the Americans didnt wanna show em up too bad.
I liked the ground effects on those imports.
i think the only unimogs that are out there this year are thae Nissan support trucks. And for those of you who have never seen a dakar yes the trucks that carry the rest of the crew and the parts race in it too, part of what makes it that much cooler i guess.
it most definitely has to blow goats for quarters when you get a Kamaz or Tatra buried above the axle centerline in wet sand. i want one of their tow straps though.
LOL, no kidding. Those straps were definitely heavy duty.
i dont know, i would rather have to do that than try to make it on a bike! The guys who ride the ktms and bmws acrost the dessert are either stupid or brave.
