Loved the buggy pushing the mini truck over the big rock @ 7:15 :hillbilly:
 
No one took solid video of me before the axle twisted off. I went down Chocolate Thunder and then made my way most of the way up when the Nitro axle broke.

We broke the same axle shaft just past the Golden Crack at Moab in 2017. RCV’s inbound from @cruiseroutfit.

If you have never attended KOH I recommend it at least once. The crazy kinda slows down at 2am and then at 5am the engines begin to roar again.

The old rag spends most of its time in the garage.

Oh yeah, and I shook hands with Robby Gordon. @Marco Lau and I were seated in an off side position just talking and watching the Saturday race on the jumbo screen when Robby mashed up on us engine thumping hard.

We jumped out of our chairs ready to launch to safer ground when his head stuck out of the “door” to assure us he wouldn’t run us over. No pics. The man is real and as friendly as you can imagine.

Did that truck sound intimidating?
 
Video here.


Never underestimate the mighty 80 series.

If not for crap Nitro rear axle letting go he would have went right up that!! ;)
 
Dam. I like my 80 too much to get anywhere near something like that.
Totally down for a buggy run tho. 👍

I love my 80. That’s why I use it to its potential.
