Got back a little while ago from Moody, it was a lot of fun. It seems to me that with even a little bit of moisture, that trail get more difficult. I attribute the difficulty mostly to my tires though, I think if I had some mud terrains, I would have done better. That being said, I finally went to the quarry, that was a hell of a lot of fun. It seemed to me there were two main obstacles there at the quarry. I was able to make it up the lower obstacle, but unfortunately, just couldn't get enough traction on the upper one to make it. FortCollinsZJ did good too, but had some overheating issues, whats up with people overheating lately on Moody? I only took a few pics with my phone, but here they are:

The Quary is a perfect example of LWB vs SWB...I couldn't make the lower section but crawled up the upper section w/o any effort...

My guess is that they had no problem because they have a rubicon with lockers and mtrs.

The upper section is a lot harder now than in that video, that's from 3 years ago. Sorry I couldn't make it today.
