@MoeStooge where is “Dump Road” ???
@kook I updated the Dump rd.
how long are these runs?
I’m kickin around the idea of building a race board, trying to see if I need more than 5 miles range
All this left side right side is making me feel real left out
Uphill- longer runs are in the 3.5 mile range. Shorter hills are in the 1mile + range. @Arzamenable has a good uphill setup using conventional vesc and comunity sourced equipment.
My stuff runs decent as well. Grip power and stability will get you up the hill on the quick.
I should be able to make this one.
@mccloed @JaysTCB and myself made some Up hill test hits on the fastest course in the DH California Outlaw Series. 1mile 9% grade hill with gentle curves. The DH freeride and racing was excellent as well as the vibe.
The balancing job on the 155mm pnumatics paid off and made for a smooth ride over 45mph.
Wish I could make it… But work calls… Buggy-d0rk racing in San Felipe this weekend… Faak… I just drove by Barrett yesterday… Pavement is gnar-gnar as ever!
say hi to my parents!
My dad is co-piloting a truck in the 18 class this weekend in the San Felipe Desert Mayhem 175. Aguilar racing.
I will… we have a bunch of 16 cars going… Mayhem is such a kewl low-key fun event!

Sending it on a banged up leg he could barely stand on.
THIS! is the definition of Perseverance.
Jason Lucier is a Racer.
For whoever is interested their is pics from the aftermath of @JaysTCB leg on his IG.
I saw that video where that Luge crashed into you on youtube. Incredible you were able to walk away from that, Skatan must have been looking out for you that day!
