Rubithon!
 
All of us are off the 'Con, except Robbie who left after we did. A good time was had by all! :clap: Big Orange suffered major carnage. Broke all the knuckle studs on both sides. Driver's side Friday in camp and passenger's side today on Cadillac Hill coming out. Tied up exiting traffic for over an hour. Luckily Mudrak was on the spot. More and pictures to follow. :D

60WAG will be your best bet for pictures first. He flew home this afternoon. The rest of us won't be home till Monday night.

Wish I could have made it this year. It looks like from what I've seen on Pirate and Ih8mud that there was more damage this year than year's past. The whole idea that Cadillac Hill is the easy way out is a false premise.

Did you ever recheck the torque on them? Once they loosen up they shear.

Nice pics Bruce :cheers:
