oppsie
 
Started of Buddy's Daughter floopped her Jeep and couldnt get the Harness off untill we got to her and drug her out, and her window was halfway down.

this is what the staging area to the pit looked like, around a foot deep in slop, its been raining for almost 2 weeks straight.

and then for my busted rear axle....

Cracked the Mini of both side's only the center section on that one side was holding it from falling in half.

oh and...

Cracked the Case...

BUT..

Pin is still in one piece, Benifit's of spending the extra $$ on a hardened Pin.

So now weighing my option's. Buy another mini for roughly 35 bucks before shipping and gut my spare 9" for the case. OR just pony up a few extra bucks for a light weight full spool? found some from 100-150 buck's Im leaning towards the full spool personally figure its stronger and by the time i buy a new mini and gut my other axle for the carrier i could of just buy a full and it would take more of a beaten. then again this one lasted since 07.

Its not terrible if you hit the wash down pit almost immediately. then a little bit with the pressure washer the next morning.

Carnage and a cutie, win. Glad she's okay and emerged with a smile. I've seen enough rolls where either the driver or passenger were submerged and it always gives me shivers...I'd prefer not to aspirate mud.

I was at a mud bog Tuesday one driver had to be transported to the ER. The idiots that made the pit packed dry clay at the end. It made a ramp and the first rail with 1,000,000 HP cleared the 150' pit in like 2.3 seconds. He went airborne at least 20' in the air if not 25'. Landed grill first then it launched sideways landed on its wheels by a miracle. Beat the driver about bad they transported to check for neck injuries.

Wow, that is super unfortunate track set up...flat out dumb on their part. I always race with a neck brace, surprised I don't see more of that. I had a racing related neck injury once, no injuries are fun but back and neck injuries always seem to bring extra suckage.

77mud 08-23-2013 06:28 PM

I have a Neck brace i wear aswell. I know my truck isnt the fastest but when you launch it still gets kinda rough and id rather be safe than sorry.

My 7 year old sister laid one on it's side earlier this year with me riding shot gun. luckly the mud wasn't as soupy. but it scared her and she wont crawl back in it
