How was that? Did you actually get to drive it, or did someone drive it while you rode shotgun?

You actually drove it, they had someone sitting shotgun with you. They had an offroad course that was fairly fun. Rules said no drifting and obey the posted speed limits. They were fairly lienent though or at least the guy that rode with me was. He didn't mind if I pitched it out on the corners some. The speedlimits posted were for obvious reasons. There was jumps on the course and you could've easily wrecked a truck by launching it so they set the speeds at a limit to show off the truck yet not destroy it. You still caught a bit of air... I didn't push the jumps and respected that.

The truck overall... SUPER NICE!!! Tons of power, interior was great! Lots of cool features and gizmos on it. Smartphone of trucks maybe? LOL Offroad wise, it's decent... For a factory vehicle with a warranty it works good. Is it awesome in the dirt or mind blowing? No... Then again, most of you have seen my vehicles and my view may be a bit jaded. For a factory truck it's pretty impressive. Is it worth the price tag? Probably depends on your income level. It's way too rich for my blood but I drove it as a curiosity factor. My expo will out crawl a raptor for sure. It'll also out run a raptor in the rough but honestly, not by a whole ton I bet, at least as mine sits right now. Raptor would own my exploder on the streets though in power, handling, comfort, and gizmos! My yota, a raptor wouldn't even come close to touching me in the dirt at speed when the going got rough, sure it would smoke me in a drag race till the first bump though. When I'm buried in silt it'll cruise right on by with 4wd though! The window sticker on the one I drove was $64K though!!!! LOL


The killer of the event? The line to drive was about an hour long. I stood there and BS'd with the people around me though and had a good time waiting. You got to do two full laps in the trucks on the VORE track out there.

I wanted to go to this, I forgot it was this weekend. Sounds like it was a lot of fun. Hopefully they'll have it again.

I used to take my chinchilla to south shores animal hospital, they were very nice and helpful, I would check them out.

Then again, they weren't able to keep him from dying...YMMV

I saw a post a while back asking about the 30/30 rounds I had but I can't find it now. Who was it that was asking about them?
