Canadian River Work Weekend

A good group of folks went to the river to do some more work this weekend.
We wanted some fresh,never before used trails for our comp coming up.
Three chainsaws & several sets of hands made clearing a hillside of brush & mesquite bushes go by rather fast. The hillside was still a lil soft from all the recent snows,but Rockchip & Gorrila did a good job of making some fresh lines to crawl. After a few rocks were moved(some by hand,some by machine) we were very happy with the results.
Just a few pics of the work & action.

Hard work always pays off


Loose rocks dont stay in place long when a rig this big comes through.


After finding the right line, Rockchip made his way up & out.


Yes,there was some carnage. Gorrilas front driveshaft CV couldnt handle the pressure & ended his fun for the day.



The exit to the extreme trail is,well, rather extreme.


Big thanks to both Gorrila & Rockchip for flogging there rigs for the cause. Also to Jeromy,Boulder Jumper,my son Chase & several of Gorrilas work buddies for helping out all day. I think all the work (ok,play) will pay off & itll be the best Comp yet at the Canadian River.
Come on out & take a look,or even enter up in one of the three classes.

All the rest of the action can be seen here

It was a tuff choice this weekend....Do I spent the money on the belt or do I spend the money on the BBC, I think you can see my choice. Maybe we should take up a collection to fix my truck and then I could afford the belt.

Something about a steel cv part instead of cast, boulder jumper knows the part and place.

I had not heard about it till I saw it in a JP magazine. I would give him a call and see how much dinero he wants for it. Hopefully not too awful bad.

Is that the only part of the double cardan that gets replaced, or it's just the part they showed in the pic?

It IS a 1310 part. So it wont upgrade size only strength.

So the cv becomes stronger but uses a weaker joint?
