Yep, @alksion rolled his 392 last year..Wasn’t there someone in the forum that actually flipped their 392? Can’t remember their name.
Pritchet Canyon is rated 9. No bypasses on the tougher obstacles. The obstacle he was on is not the toughest obstacle in Pritchet Canyon by the way, not by a long shot. It would have been interesting to see how he did on the Rock Pile, or that side hill off camber climb just before the Rock Pile that makes you get seat foam permanantly stuck in your back side.That’s awesome! Genuine question; theses trails that are for rock crawling are only accessible if you climb or is there usually an easier path? I guess I don’t know if a mountain pass road is any different from a trail?
That was my first thought as well. Hard to tell from a distance, but looked like 10 - 15 psi to high.My first observation was that his tire pressure was way too high. Had the tire pressure been lower I think he might have made it on one of the earlier attempts. When he had his "moment" the high tire pressure saved him as I think the extra angle from tire squish might have put him over.
So many things that could have been better...
Does EJS have official spotters/guides? Is the spotter in the video affiliated with EJS? Seems as though, with the headset and other Jeeps around. If so, that display does not exude competence on his part, so novice wheelers should be aware of what experience/qualifications these guys have if wheeling with them. Notice at 2:48 he pushes him off the ledge; not a big deal in this case, but they did have to redo and correct for it.that spotter is up for a Darwin award standing so darn close to a driver like that.
Dude, there was an EPIC thread from about 15 years ago in a GSXR forum where a kid put NOS Energy drink in his bike, from the gas station store as opposed to the shop and started and attempted to drive it away........ He STILL hasn't lived that down. Last I checked the thread was like 3k pages long.
