Ouch Fish!!! Did you bend the frame, or just the radiator support?


You may beat me in the flats, but watch out in the whoops.

Frame is ok. The support is still perfectly straight it just dents in at those 2 holes where and bars were.

Yes we had a bunch of spoters this time :) And it was during the day so it was pretty safe.

Fish,

you talking about that table right across shell reef express way from Devil Slide? The one where you turn left off the road while heading toward blow sand then you hit a few little whoops right before the lip, and if you hit it right you land oh so smooth and pull across shell reef express way back toward devils slide, but if you don't, well, you don't land so smooth?

Whats up man,

Did you diagnose what was wrong with your truck? We left today at about 1:30pm, had a really great time up there.

Yea one of the spark plug wires got wraped around the shock hose and got pinched between the engine and it frayed the plug wire. So it was only running on 5 Cylinders and the timing was all off.

Did I miss anything cool after I left?

That blows, you didn't really miss anything special. One of the couple got in a fight and the guy left at 4am leaving his girl and friend there, on Sunday we just made a run out to shellreef, to poleline road, to san felipe wash.
