Are Wipe Out Hill and Porcopine Rim wise choices for this rig? Does Wipe Out have a bypass for the actual obstacle?

You might PM Kipper to get his take but there is one section on Porcupine Rim, just before the overlook area as you are going in, that you'll want to be careful on. You get to go down it and then back up it. I posted up some pictures here and some video here. A couple other spots IIRC as well. Nothing terrible mind you, but as I recall Kipper did in fact hit his rocker leading us last year .

IIRC Porcupine was the only trail I ran (Fins and Poison Spider were the other two) that I hit my sliders on anything last year.

FWIW, I am helping in some way on the overnighter.
So I guess I will see at least one of you, I know of a few others on Mud and WC.
I have no other plans for CM, I dont even have a place to stay after the overnighter, So I will most likely head home, This will most likely make my wife happy

Oh great, so Martin hit his sliders standing on 34s on Porcupine? Hopefully that was because you knew you had sliders and weren't afraid to use them, and there will be room for a wagon (and my 40) running on 31s to go over the ledges no problem. Guess I'll find out Sunday or Monday.

We will have to keep in touch on this... I'm hoping to hear back from Kipper. I think his 60 was on 31's last year.

Also: Is Wipe Out Hill part of another trail? I was trying to look it up in the Wells book and it is not listed as a stand alone trail...

I was mis-identified as having run porcupine, so no help there.

I believe Wipeout Hill is also the end of Seven Mile Rim.
