Default Videos from the FJ Cruiser Run

Ok, I fired up Pinnacle Studio 8 and made some videos and posted them. Nothing spectacular but here they are:

The first one is me going over the Optional Rock (YoderRock) with Oleg in the background. 3.5 mb

Next are a few of us going over Whale Rock. My dad messed up any footage of me in the FJ Cruiser. Wait till you see Farnham in his 100 series though. 4.6mb

Then we have a 40 going over the double slab (not sure who it is) and FJ Lead Driver Chris getting the FJ stuck on the last obstacle called Sheps Revenge. You can see where he tried to back out and got hung up on the loose skid plate that I tore up. 5.8mb

Next are various people getting through Sheps Revenge, some people made it look easy and others found the line you don't want to take. The 80 series, I'm not sure who it was, smashed his tail light (video stopped just before the breakage). 6.9mb
http://www.yodertech.com/FJRun/Sheps_Mix.wmv

This last video is Robbie trying to get his FJ through this obstacle. Chris was trying to take him low, but then got him through on the high line. Evidently on their pre-run the low line worked better for them for some reason. You can see the traction control not kicking in when stopped and stuck. That's common, but it still does a better job than the previous generation traction control that I'm used to seeing on the 4Runners. 6.5mb

Nice! I especially like the last one. The tail end is the pig coming up the obstacle. Jeanette was driving at the time!!

She drove that thing like she knew what she was doing. The front flex wasn't too bad either. It was great seeing you get out on a Colorado run Chris.
