If you listen at the end, I think one of then started their period.


In all seriousness, I'm glad they are ok & it's great to be able to poke fun at something that could have been much worse....

exactly why im currently in the process of converting my buggy to dual masters and dual brake pedals both completely independent of each other, ive had my brakes go out more then once from losing a brake line and consider myself lucky it didnt happen in a spot like this one did.

caryt Dam....would never have thought that could happen there, like others said wtf caused it and what up with the brakes?
08-31-2016 07:34 AM
Pipelayer Scary! It acted as if it was in nutural.

Overhauler I'm not an automatic driver so I'm confused as to what happened. I hope driver fills us in. May put in those extra harnesses

YotaAtieToo Like everyone said, glad everyone was OK #1

This is why I want to punch every one in the face that thinks there is only a possibility of a roll when doing something sketchy.

Was he shifting from hi to low? seems like even 1st gear in hi wouldn't be that fast.

This also reminds me why I want a mechanical ebrake on my rig Vs a line lock.

I'm putting this on Martini Tree next trip

craig195 My old girl never gets out of low range on the trail. Drum brakes though and I get a thrill after every water crossing. Often as it happens I still forget
08-30-2016 04:27 PM
RCKRATZ no compression braking in the trans you can get moving like that no matter what the tcase is doing
08-30-2016 12:16 PM
NorCal_Chris had to have been in neutral or something. Glad they were ok but that video should have stopped a few seconds in to the bushes on the left
08-30-2016 12:16 PM
CanadianZuk You can see the battery vacate from under the hood on one of the rolls. And yeah, they stayed pretty damn calm considering. Glad they are OK

from the video, I doubt that he would have been in low range. I have a 5.0 atlas/automatic and very rarely ever need to hit my brakes on very steep downhills......but, where this guy was, I probably would have been in hi range also and wouldn't have been able to cram either front or rear in low range. that's what happened to the famous lady coming down lions back in moab. she tried to change ranges in her transfercase and couldn't get it back in gear. we are getting ready to do the rubicon again in a week and half.......I always respect the trail, even though it is not what I consider hardcore. thank God there were no injuries with the people involved!!

erictylers1 Good save and good on you having a cage that worked and seatbelts put on.

There's a fine line between a rough weekend and a fatality.

craig195 Okay, glad no one got hurt but even with no brakes how's it get going that fast in low range?

I doubt my cage would have survived that.

Yes. 1 fatality on Con without belts. This incident, relatively uneventful...driver had a really good cage (if you notice, it wasn't even bent) and he said they had 5 point on.
