It's set right in the middle, and seems pretty stiff. May back it off one spot. Went with 4.56 gears.

I imagine it will be even more stiff WITH shocks. It handled rather well up to 45mph! I do like not having a ton of body roll though.

Does anyone know if rocky gap has been close due to the fire? Was hoping to hit it up either next weekend or the following one.

Rocky Gap Road is the actual name of what we call Potato Ridge.

No idea if it is open or not.

I did the loop today while the kids were napping and I did not see anything from the Red Rock side that looked like it was closed. It looked like the smoke was coming from Lovell Canyon though.

What kind of run are you looking to do? I am inexperienced and don't have a whole big set up but I am interested.
