Haha... yeah Sandstone is good for exposing any weak links. Sounds like a good test. Good luck!

If you wanna test it...that's a great place to do it!

Here's a little known fact. Ford sends engineers with test vehicles up and down Sandstone because of the grade and length. Buddy of mine has met a couple of the engineers doing the testing in the Beckley area.

I haven't heard....but on the other hand, I didn't hear anything on the scanner about anyone being broken down.

Is this like a BaJa event and we need to get the lawn chairs and sit on the side of the road on sand Stone and cheer you on?

Maybe so! If we want to really represent the typical "locals" during a Baja race, then we need to set up a few booby traps along the course. Logs in the road, dig a few pits and cover with leaves, stuff like that

Oh man....that's devious! BUT, what do you do when one of those rigs hits the trap before our guy gets there?

Those will be sum po'd drivers LOL!

Dig more holes.

He will go around the ones with a rig sticking out of it, the next one may be empty and get the job done though.

OK, What can I say the 6.4 even impressed me. I guess I need to go west and pull something across Donner Pass. Topped Sandstone at 75 and had pedal left.
