I remember that. It did look smooth. But as I remember 10 miles later he was at the end of a rope. I don’t know for sure but a Ford was probably at the front end of that rope too making all that much more worse.

Ok watching that video and seeing all that, what are your guys thoughts on shock technology and how many of those vehicles would have made a good landing and continued on if they had the current technology and set ups?

my never tested&set up right by pass bling shocks were 10, no 1000 times better than my semi valved right smoothies, except for the ANNOYING noise, nothing compares to modern,properly set up shox, to all you newbies, invest in Good shox& get somebody who knows how to set them up out on a testing day, one day is all it takes and your lower back will thank you!!ps, on the question of would modern shocks help, on the baja bugs& 16 cars?, i think thats just part of the allure of the rear engine race car😮
