Good luck and watch out for your intake if its wetter mud. I changed my air filter yesterday and there was definitely some water that made it into the intake. I was only in puddles and mud that did not even make my running boards.

i also wanted to get peoples opinion about 4hi or low. most of the research says 4hi for wheel speed, seeing as i have an auto with 35's and 3.73 gears i can do 80k in 1st gear. i figure 4 low to get the 2 to 1 kick down which will still allow wheelspin and hopefully get the power to kick in

great sucess, best run was mid 15 second pass, didnt win in my class but ended probably midway through it. she didnt get stuck either and kept on trucking through the pit. here are a few pics of the aftermath, there may be a video or two i can post later

here is a little video of my first pass, it was quite an easy pass the first round since there was more water than mud
