had a great time at SRATV. I saw lots of people! Ran into several people who recognized my bike from HL. Saw T-Money and met a buddy of his ,Met Donna and her family. talked to mark (bootlegger) a good bit. everyone i met was just good people.

Donna got it going on at these things!

here's some pics and vids from events. Congrats to brandon tarter on his win.

Too bad bootlegger didnt use my battery. He was guaranteed to win with it! maybe next time

we got there about 8:00. By 8:50 i was stuck in this hole. the hole was THICK! i had it to the middle and that was it. I had the 31's burried down all the way. They couldnt even spin in forward L. as a result, I proceeded to smoke the belt in fwd and reverse trying to get out. It took 2 rangers pulling at the same time to unstick me. i was no help as I couldnt get the wheels moving.

after that incident, the belt was toast. It help up all day though. makes nice clanking and flapping noise under load. belt toast, motor bad and broke the front tire off the bead lovely.

here's pics and vids

Thanks for the pics and vids Steve. ( gonna watch them later)

Don't you know by now to take an extra belt

Did you break the tire down in the hole or later on?

i rode on it all day like that it kept pulling on the left and steering ****** to the right. saw the tire when we were leavin

i definitely need to keep a belt on hand. i wouldnt want to change it anyway. i had offers for a new belt but i didnt want to change it with the mud on the bike as thick as it was.

I know what you mean about hating to work on it dirty. I'm the same way.

Hey look at it this way. At least it's only a burned belt. If it had gripped you might have done far worse like broke a axle.

Man.....you can see on both turns going into the straight away where mine rear end floats over. You were right Steve, you can here my bike miss at the end of the first lap.....BTW. The Fuel pump is DEAD!!!! Sucks driving Six hours and then have problems...but oh well...thats part of it. Can't do well every race. Atleast I know what to change now...just never had a problem with my rear tires floating like that. First race with a new bike...atleast it did not leak. Thats on good thing....LOL

BTW, I really appreciate you letting my try to use your battery. That was VERY nice of you.

not sure..I came around the corner and seen it....lol. I was so disgusted I almost stopped and got it. Gotta order a fuel pump now....that sucks. I hate having problems and sure had them yesterday. I am surprised I finished the race....I loaded it up right after racing....unloaded it at home and it quit before I got it to the garage. It didn't have much pressure....when I hit it WOT....it took a sec to pick up gas....other than that it ran ok....but it cost the the hole shot. Steve said he could hear it missing...as I came outta that straight away...in the video I could here it as well. I guess next time...it aggravates me....but I lost and there is NO excuse for that. Atleast I know what to change now...one thing is Cruslocks. The Brute did well with regular wheels...but this KQ don't seem too. Its like the rear end won't stay on the the bottom....just goes up & down. Steve and I put water in the tires...but I did not put enough in the rear ones....I didn't think it would be an issue...but I was wrong.
