I live in Richardson and it wasn't bad at all. I only used less than half a tank all day. I do recommend going with a group, it's pretty easy to get lost out there.

Thanks man!! I took it out last weekend on its maiden voyage.. it did pretty well for being open diffs. I got up some pretty good stuff. Close to the end of the trip I almost flipped it on the waterfall. I had the front driver tire about 5 foot off the ground pushed in the clutch and rolled back out of it. I will have to wait for a few months before I try it again. I did rip some chunks out of the tires, got rock rash on those nice pretty rims, and bent the tie rod. All in all it was a great day.

sorry for the delay..... the waterfall really isnt a real waterfall its just what we locals call it. however its still a pretty nasty obstacle. i have seen some badass rigs not make it. there is a lot of good trails up here in Amarillo and there are trails for just about every rig. there are several things the buggy wont do and there are things for a stock grand on street tires. when yall get ready to make a trip this way ill do my best to show everyone around.
