Was the attempt at "Axle Shaft Hill" successful.... I've tried that one the last two times I've been there and pretty much ended the same way all twisted up like the pic and almost on my side.

When I have the cage & rear corners in next spring will be back there to to tackle or try again.

Jesse-James 08-18-2009 06:54 AM

It was pretty hairy, but I made it. I'm trying to track down the video that was taken of it.

jwm1986 08-18-2009 10:07 AM

Where's Josh.. I wanted to see some of the pics from Sunday.

jdhallissey 08-18-2009 12:27 PM

I am uploading them today sometime. The guy made it up axle breaker. We showed up and went up and lent a hand with my 20 foot straps to hold him from going over. Scott in his buggy went up axle breaker like it was a cake walk! But broke his driver side hub off when he decided to try jumping out the top of it lol. Dave the video of going up the rock slabs was decent considering I was hanging out the side of the truck lol.

jpdocdave 08-18-2009 10:04 PM

Not a broken Hub just brolen studs that hold the hub on...
My reasoning, I use the cheapest grade Metric threaded rod so the Hub shears instead of blowing an axle. It worked I got to keep wheeling :D
