Yup we kinda keep it hush hush to keep the dust down and the neighbors happy, pretty cool though, you break something and you can walk home and grab tools and a cold beer for the walk back

There are some differences but overall they do look somewhat alike and some of the design is pretty close also

Shot these as a bunch of video clips a couple of months ago at the Hammers.
Was a busy weekend, We had just gotten done with After shock and were waiting for a group to get sufficiently ahead of us on Sledge Hammer
So we went and watched another group of mostly Toyota buggies take a try on the first obstacle at Jack Hammer. The first guy nailed it the rest fought and struggled on it we watched for about an hour, then headed back to Sledge Hammer and within 10 minutes got stuck behind another group of Toyota buggies plugging the trail. I have done the Jack Hammer entry just have no video of it, nailed it on the second try. It's a fun obstacle that demand a perfect approach or it is not going to happen.

Nope we sat there for 1 hour, 2 guys made it 2 didn't come even close to trying they had a heck of a battle with the bypass the other 2 fought with it for close to 20 mins each and took the bypass. We headed out to Sledge and still got stuck behind the other group breaking down all over the place.

Felt like doing a bit of tinkering today so finished the steering box skid and made a mount for my flip video camera

Got the itch to tinker tonight, so my eyes fell on the smashed up fairlead and then to a 3/8" thick piece a 6160T6 had left over from my engine skid .
So of came the fairlead and the tinker business was on. Might even polish it some day
