How did he roll it? Too much go in too tight of a turn? Or did he catch a big rut?

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

X2 on the KTM's, beautiful rides!

Nah, his flat billed hat fell down over his eyes. He doesn't have to worry though, I am sure daddy will buy him another ride

My bad.. quick glance said chrome.. I was more interested with the 3rd to pay much attention to the wheels. Agreed on the chrome thing, I would take aluminum any day over chrome crap.

Completely 100% flat lake bed, doing about 50 thinking he's ken block but his tires gripped a bit better then he thought mid drift.

Basically he was being a complete idiot!

There was a solid handful of idiots on the run! About 80% of them never even hit a bump and got their jolly's doing circles on the lake bed. A couple actually went out and hit a bump or two.

I was pretty stoked, I was able to grab 4th gear thru tranny alley which is about 2'-3' deep rollers and whoops! It was my first time running that section and considering my truck isn't remotely dialed in it was almost scary how fast it was thru there and now knowing how much fast it will be once I button up the front end and tune the shocks more!

I got video footage but haven't done anything with it yet...

I'm honestly not sure. I've got some long time family friends that said they were coming into town to spectate or chase for one of their friends. If they go I might try and at least meet up with them to say hello for a bit. Honestly though, I wasn't planning on it... Figured I'd keep my nose to the ground and keep slaving away in the garage to get myself on the starting line rather then watching others do it... LOL

Got the roof back on and ready to be ground down smooth where I welded the seams. I have no clue what to use though in the corners and tight spots...

Started on the engine cage too but this is all I'm doing for now. I just wanted to get all the firewall holes cut and dealt with asap so I can get back in and continue inside the cab. Going to start working on seat mounts, steering column, pedals, dash install, etc... I want to get it all in and set up asap so we can get going on wiring and not be rushed. While it's being wired I can go back and finish up the front at the same time.

From pikes peak over the weekend... all of a sudden I don't feel like my cage is overkill at all! One of the occupants got a leg broke, that's it...
