    Been riding offroad bikes for quite a while, so not too scared offroad, but in a cage its a new ball game, everything that feels natural to do is aprently wrong in a 4x4...

    I put a KTM sticker on the Rocky so she can wheely pretty well now...

    Not a side slope, but a tilted camera. That obstacle is close to the beginning of the route.

    I think Fluffy is refering to pic 3, which is not in the beginning of the course it's where all the ditches are, I purposely went in like that casue it was more fun...
