So we are on a family trip to visit family in Idaho and after 8 long hours so far @ONE_RJ starts going on about all of the racers that they helped down south. Class 5's, 1600's, 7's, 10's, BC cars, 6100's, motos, quads all along the nasty silt beds

I (along with many of our extended racing family on RDC) would love to hear your story if you have one!

I know there were at least 2 white Broncos (@krittro and @gregshapiro) that also pulled some weight around too. Thank you for their support as well!

Spill your beans and let us all enjoy a good Baja tale before turkey day!

Just a couple electrical and fuel gremlins that Lucas tried like hell to work out but couldn't fix in time. Hoping for tuning session Parker Dec 18-20th. Lucas and Bryant will be there to work on her...

sure looks to be around RM 497

Looks to me closer to 400-410? Right before the fish camps where the first bit of silt started playing in. 490 we were on the east side of hwy 1 and not near any silt by el crucero.

Yup, I edited it to RM397, We blew the trans right there in that silt bed, pre running. Took about 8 hours to get towed out and back to the highway.

Yup! Bad spot for sure! Thankfully we didn't skip a beat through on our way thru to a class 10 win. Prerunning saved my butt
