BV Carnage 8-11-07
 
Myself and the Rockfrogs ran this trail Saturday and man what a nightmare. I ran that trail a little over a year ago with much less trouble.

Took us 12 hours to get 5 rigs thru, lot's of Carnage by all, That trail is MEAN

Wow, that's a seriously hard core trail. Those videos really show how difficult it is.

87Xota 08-13-2007 07:43 AM

Yes very extreme, I've got a crushed drivers door, happened after the Vnotch. The old 4runner has alot of body damage.

I'll post up some damage pics later.

I remember last time I did that trail, I was looking forward to coming back, now it is so much harder, I don't want to go back.

Another in the series of trails that the rebuilt Chili will never see...:eek:

That is some seriously nasty stuff there. Glad you made it back in one piece!! I mean, besides my personal interest in same...:lmao:

Does this mean you will be seeing a steady stream of 4Runner body work in the shop??

Ouch... I got Yoda Jim's last straight driver's side fender for my son Saturday, but he is complaining about owing me for it, so he may turn loose of it. $43 or so with tax, so that is 'affordable' if it isn't 'findable'.

I made the body shop manager cringe with every scrape of my 4Runner :D I don't really mind the damage, however I would like to get the driver's door back on before winter :D
