Watching Waylon Campbell at the Reno race (short course with a few boulder fields). He would switch into 4 when he entered the rock piles and then back into two when he was in the fast sections.I find it a little bit harder to compare KOH vehicles to trophy trucks. Yes, the KOH trucks are going pretty damn fast in the open, but not quite as fast as a TT. When a KOH truck is on the rocks and bouncing around, that is the most amount of stress on their drivetrain, but I feel that the shock loads going through a TT at speed across the whoops is more stressful than that of a KOH on bouncing on the rocks.
With that said, why hasn't someone put the KOH drivetrain in a TT?
The way I see it, the KOH trucks are already competing in the open desert as they just did this past weekend at the Mint, but they weren't anywhere near the speed of the TT. The only one I saw going fast enough was Casey Currie (His motor sounded effin rad by the way). I don't know what cause him to DNF.
