Indy 5-15-11

Mike (MSuits) and David (catzuk) decided to do a last minute shake down run so I decided to go help spot and be the photographer for the day since mine is still down.

Nothing to eventfull, they both made it all the way thru pretty quickly even with all the sloppy mud, until the exit where it took a ton of creative work to get out. Only vehicle problems was Mike popped the two rear tire beads and kept having to air up.

Anyway on to the pics, I took 96 so I'm only got to post a few but here's the link to them all.... http://smg.photobucket.com/albums/v6...-11/?start=all

Thanks Mr. Nick! Had a great time. The wet rocks and mud made things a lil harder.

I have been on those and the others like topless and coyote canyon there as well. Awsome wheeling in Montrose. Have to get back there and wheel there this year. Especially now that my buggy is running again!

Indy is a fun area. The wet certianly made the exit interesting. Had to warm up those 37's to get traction. LOL

Nick, I looked through your photobucket, great pics! Thanks again for taking those. I may have to steal a couple of them for my build thread if you don't mind.

Not a problem, let me know which ones you want and I'll get you full size or I could just burn you a CD....

LOL, too bad we don't have pics of them "warming" up, they were g pretty good a couple times. I am just happy I can spin all 4 of those 37's fast enough to do that. I have a little tuning to do, but the power felt pretty decent. Still have a little flat off idle spot, but I have to finish running out the 3 year old gas first before I tinker any more with it.

A cd would be great, or I we can just load them up to one of my usb thumb-drives sometime.


I think it did pretty good considering it went from being built in garage, straight onto trailer then into indy. No other testing was done except for backing out of garage once to test/bleed hydro steering. LOL

I must have a hell of a lot of confidence into my builds.
