Upside Down in Clayton!

Well, I did a little upgrading to the buggy with a set of 37" red label stickies and rear steer, so we headed out to clayton ok last weekend to test it out. This is by far the best this little buggy has ever performed! We ran green momba, the extension, black sheep, upper slim slope, and redneck millionaire with no problem! We had a group of big meat buggies with us, but after they took a very long time on blacksheep we headed out on our own. Anyway, at the exit of the extension I was playing with the rear steer and not really watching the trail. And well, next thing we knew we were showing off our undercarriage...lol! Nothing was hurt and we got a shove back over and were back to crawling. This was Shannon's first roll with me and she loved it! She was laughing like a little school girl the whole time we were upside down. Anyways, on with the pics...

Yeah, the rig was built for a smaller tire, so the 37's work better than the 42's did by a long shot, but on the same hand the 37's are stickies and that kinda puts them in a separate category and I did the rear steer at the same time as downsizing, so it really wasn't a fair comparison. All I know is that stickies and rear steer are where it's at...lol!

I personally like the small tires because it's easier on equipment, and alot more impressive when you make the big climbs and are sitting on top waiting for the big rigs to muscle their way up...hehehe!

Smaller tires are fun.

But Stickys and rear steer....I bet its so much fun it should be against the law.

Buggy needs some love after hotsprings but should be ready to go by the first of the year. Nothing broke just need to look everthing over and change some fluids. I've got to keep that buggy up to par so I can keep up with that Sami and those mad skills you have. Want to go back to Clayton and find some axle breaking stuff. HAHAHAHA.

The good thing about stickies is you can run more air psi than with non-stickies.

I have been running the BFG's for about a year on the hardest trails within 300 miles in all directions from East Texas with no problems yet. I run them between 9-10psi. I was told to run them about 10-12psi to save the sidewalls and they seem to work at that
psi. I do run the front full of water and I know that has something to do with psi but at 9psi this weekend I had no issues. Love the BFG's.
