i think the "issue" is that they don't "live" on forums like others do

Be the ball Tommie

don't worry Tommie, we all have to start somewhere, if this stuff were easy, everyone would do it and they would only hand out 1st place trophies!!

you made a valiant effort, the course was awesome today, except for the stupid sand!!

Thanks... Like I said before, everything was going great until my chain came off and I broke 3 sprocket bolts and had to use vines and bubblegum to hold everything together.... Other than that, I would have won the whole event....

Decided to take some back roads home and stopped for some BBQ at Austin's in Eagle Lake... everything was fine after that....

Sounds like a good time....I spent my day priming and painting...unfortunately, it was cabinets. Ughhh! I see Ug made the event too....

Live engine start, huh? How'd you guys like that format? I've always been a dead engine start kinda guy....mainly for safety...and to separate the men from the boys. lol

They are expensive, but they are sure nice, especially on hill climbs and tight stuff. I didn't like it in the sand.

CHEATERS....LOL

I don't use one b/c I feather the out of my clutch in tight woods and for uphill climbs when I lose momentum....and in panic situations when my arms are fatigued and I grab too much throttle and need to keep the front end from going up and over my head.
