Jumpy jumpy
« on: September 27, 2014, 04:28:24 PM »


That's before I landed it on its nose ending our rally.  Car is at the frame shop, she'll rally again.

Russ, Mike & Tony came up to crew, the car was back in pretty good shape in the hour it took to go fetch the trailer.  Amazing what they could do in makeshift conditions and was beyond the moon happy for their help.

Heard about the hard landing, glad it's all repairable and on the way to recovered. 

And awesome shot!!

Everyone else went a bit less aggressive on that one.

But, at least you had the best picture!

Hey Tony, Did you get a chance to see the shots that Scott Rains took of the jump?  If not, I'll save them off Facebook and get them to you.

I did not see the Scott Rains pics but I'd like to.

On a side note the car is out of the frame shop, stuff is back where it's supposed to be.  Still some more work getting the car back to rally shape.

I saved them off Facebook.  The expression on your face after you land is great  ;D  I'm guessing there were some choice words uttered.

Thanks man!  It went pretty well, though as with the theme of this thread three competitors got a little too jumpy-jumpy and rolled it.  Fortunately no-one was harmed and none of the local drivers succumbed to that fate.

Wow. That's one #### of a photo series.

I heard the car was so stout it bent the frame bender.  :discomonkey

The scuttlebutt is the Evo was bending the small machine so they had to put it on the "big one".  Kinda crazy since all that was being pulled out was the rad support.
