Team Truxx,Crossedup LCQ to KOH 2011 Video

I have really been meaning to get together my thoughts and memories into words. The week was amazing. Mike at the wheel, me in the Codog seat and an amazing team tirelessly helping us all week.
Here is a gimps of our week and our race.
Thanks to Truxx and Crossed-up for having me as part of your team.

We finished. The frustrating part was we picked off a ton of people in the first 75 miles got into about 20th. Then our engine died, we switched to the second pump and filter. It ran about a mile then died. Come to find out we were sucking our foam into the fuel filters. We had to stop every 7 miles or so to clean them back out. Major PITA and it killed our chances at a top finish. Owell its racing and we finished that 2 out of 3 for me. I can live with that

Thanks a lot for sharing that with us, I would have missed it in the other forum for sure. Great editing who ever made the actual video! I love the timelapse clips.

Mike and and his crew at Crossed Up put together a beautiful rig.

Justin, can you elaborate more on the foam plugging up the filters. What kind of foam, fuel type, filter type/size/quantity etc.

Was that a catheter "leak" during the pit?

Why the change in tires?

Yes that was a catheter leak hahaha.
As far as the tires. We did some prerunning with the krtb and were not happy with thete performance in the rocks. To be frank they fucking sucked. The cc's were night and day better.
