Congrats Jay! A few of the Rockfrogs were talking about going. I will cross post over there and to see if anybody can help out.
Eric! That would be awesome, I owe half those guys some drinks already for the free labor I got while I was in Colorado . I miss that group, still one of the best Moab trips I ever had was with the Rock Frogs.
This is during the URE Jam, but I'm not sure if it is part of the URE Jam, this may be at the Stables across the highway.

Balance Beam: Drive up to balance in the fastest time!
Roll to the line: You have a starting line, cut off line and a finish line. Start and once you reach the 'cut off line' one must put the vehicle in neutral, no brakes and no throttle- only steering. A Judge will be navigating (passenger seat) to verify. One will try and come to a stop, using steering to scrub off speed, as close to the finish line as possible with the front right (passenger) hub. A measurement is taken. Closest to the finish line wins!
Ball and Post: You have a start and finish line (same line) and one ball and two posts (75 feet apart) and a turn around area or box. One starts and drives to the first post to take the ball off the top off the post from the drivers side. The driver then hands the ball to the passenger who puts the ball on the next post (passenger side obviously). Driver then drives to end (box), does a 'J' turn, drives back to post and passenger gets ball off of post (passenger side obviously) hands the ball to the driver who then puts the ball on the last post (driver side obviously) and then drives to finish line (box) where the the time is stopped. The ball needs to remain balanced for at least 2 seconds on top of the post (If it is windy). Confused -? I hope not - That game is fast paced and fun!! Fastest time wins!
Blind Dog Run: I think the most fun of all the games! A course is setup using posts and tape, flagging or pennant flags on a string. The driver is blind folded, the navigator tells the driver what to do! This will take place over obstacles and sharp turns! Time is added to the clock if your vehicle touches the tape and even more time if posts are hit or knocked down. Fastest time wins!
Nudge the Jug: Serious driver and navigator skill is needed for this one! The object is to knock the ball off the jug without spilling any water! Similar or same- start/finish line and 'J' turn as in the 'Ball and Post' game. This game uses plastic gallon milk jugs, water and a tennis ball. You better have some extra of these items! From the starting line one drives to a jug filled with water, on the ground, with a tennis ball on top of the jug (cap removed). Driver first stops at the jug, on the passenger side, with the jug at the front right (passenger) tire. The driver attempts to knock the ball off. The navigator needs to help the driver approach the jug! Then the driver goes to the end/box, does a 'J' turn and returns to the jug on the drivers front tire and attempts to knock the ball off. Then drives to finish line/ box. Time is added if water is spilled and even more time added if the jug is crushed or damaged. !! Fastest time wins!
Slalom Run: Timed event! This game has a separate starting line and finish line. One will start and weave between the traffic cones spaced evenly (maybe) on semi-rough terrain, to a finish line at the end. Fastest time wins!
REDLYNER Racing will be competing in the 2013 King of the Hammers EMC race as an Ultra4 4500 series Mod class racer. We are wearing #4550 and will be representing mall crawlers everywhere!
Team REDLYNER is all in, our plan is race fast and push for the best showing possible. This jeep is a daily driving, mall crawling, movie theater cruising, grocery getting, show-n-shine diva fighting against some serious buggies with some excellent drivers. So it will take flawless prep, perfect tuning, and a mistake free race if we are to keep up with the 4500 guys. First thing's first, the check and registration are in the mail.
Want to be a part of Team REDLYNER & REDLYNER Racing? WE CAN USE THE HELP! I need a nasty, dirty (but let's be honest, I'm not a huge fan of dirt ), hard charging group to help me make this a success. Positions and skills needed in North Carolina and California:
Back up Co-Driver- current co-driver on the fence about making the trip.
Pit Crew for tuning days and Main Pit Support Team- anyone who can help turn a wrench in the 2 to 3 days leading up to race. Final prep and fixing whatever breaks during test and tune sessions.
Remote Pit Crew- Must have a 4x4 to get to the remote pit stop. Responsible for re-fuel and any tire changes. Would help if you had a portable welder.
Logo Designer- PM me for details.
Helicopter pilot- Must provide own helicopter. In exchange for your aerial photography you will be given a full 1 year membership to NC4x4 and Jeepforum.
I'll have REDLYNER Racing Swag for my team, I'll be giving away some Jeepforum memberships, and should have some other cool prizes along the way. This should be a lot of fun and an opportunity for the forum to participate in the biggest race of the year!
If we are going to compete with the LS3, tubed out buggies, it's time to get serious. First mods up are K&N air filter and red brake caliper paint :
Here we go!
Let me know when you are going to do your pre running and what not.
Most likely will take the week of again during KOH to do some oggling, cheering and quality wheeling.
Will gladly help you pit during your race
