Think it'll do OK on Pritchett's?

I don't know Justin, looks to me like we may need a little more flex in the rear

Cool,
That rear travel looks like it will be alot of fun to play with.
The kind of rig that would do well in the Black Hill's, Whose trails tend to eat lesser rigs... and just in time to play in the snow!

Have Fun Dee!

Justin,

Dee and I can't say enough about how good the Meanie works now. It drives like a totally different rig now. The new link geometry, sway bar and front end re-work makes a HUGE difference. It drives like it's on rails on the road and the cornering is phenominal. It really digs and climbs in the rocks.

Dee did every obstacle on Upper Helldorado and Pritchett's without virtually any wheel spin. Of course, having Jeremy spotting probably contributed just a little bit to that

I ran Behind the Rocks backwards and followed Jeremy up White Knuckle Hill without much trouble once I got the bump momentum thing figured out.

Nice job!
