It took some time to get them positioned optimally, but what an amazing difference.

Most Yakima and Thule accessories fit on it too, which is nice. I can switch from bike to ski to kayak etc.

Fixed it with the same type of windfoil as the Yakima Type.

Ok here is a barrel race video.
It's my first try at Youtube. Thanks WC. Our racing usually has 3 events for points. The other events are for fun. Barrels, Obstacle and Cross Country. I race in Legends which is over 45 cause I'm old.
This is a 19.08 second barrel you can see some blue blowing. I have a problem with one of my rings seating.
I won my class with this barrel. The overall winner did a 17.68 sec barrel.
I was way too wide around the barrel and I came into the start finish to slow. But if you knock over a barrel you DQ, so you have to be careful.
I had my rear tires jacked to 45lbs and front at 20lbs. I'm running 16 inch MTR's radials with Staun beadlocks.
I run barrels in 4 wheel low 2nd gear.

Jeep racing extraviganza...

Ok here's a couple more shots.

Here's one of the women drivers. Most of the wifes drive and are smokin fast.
She is giving a reporter from a local TV station a ride.
I think the seat was wet when she climbed out.







Here's another one of the girls. They enjoy riders it's part of the fun.
Then they tell the men to fetch em a beer or they'll make em ride again.

Only kidding no beer allowed till after the races.






One of the kids with Dad, part of the really cool thing about this is kids can drive at all ages and they are really good.
They even have a zero to 3 year old steering class.







Another one of the little whipper snappers.






There is a reason dirt is flying. Most of these rigs run over 500hp. Even the kids get all 4 tires working.







This is one of the cleanest rigs out there. Cause it's owned and built by a woman. Story goes about her that her tow rig caught on fire. While she is letting it burn to the ground she is in her trailer getting her race Jeep out.
Cops tried to stop her. Guess who won that one?







These machines don't run on there own. Here's a few of us under RS's rig
At the races our club is a team and we all help out when a rig is down.





See back together







More later.... But here is me again on the obstacle course.
I won this also. With an 82 second run. Guess who the points leader is so far?
Gota keep her runnin.

If you're running for time in sand, you should be running cut tires. Something that will fling some serious doo-doo and propel you forward.
Without running true paddle tires, cut Boggers do well. Take out the baby lugs.
You'll need some juice to turn them, but it's night and day vs regular all terrain or mud tires.

How bad do you want to bring home the bacon....

Rob's flop Saturday.

My wife is taking the video and she's doing a good job. Rob's jeep is a short and really stiff suspension. There are 3 classes short, med, and long. You can see he caught a tire and over he went.
You can see me running thru the video at the end. Just a few of us pushing and back over he goes.
No shots of us racing this week. Blew the motor on Friday night sprints.
Heading for Liberty which is my favorite 4 wheel spot in the state this weekend. Hope to get some good pics then.
