Damn, shitty to hear. Full of Hate was no joke.

We hit pretty hard on the waterfall on Full of Hate. Rolled on our side, but when we got off of that mess, we had no brakes. U-joint was squalling on the inside of the knuckle. Made it to the wash before Big Johnson before losing 4WD. Ended up being a broken spindle, allowing the hub to try and escape off the car. Only part we didn't have on the car, no time to hike to pit 2. Still a blast. We'll be there next year.

Not sure what to make on the coating. One wheel flaked pretty bad on the inside, but I think it was the process. I had to be an ass hole with the shop to get them done, a week late..... When I went to pick them up they were too hot to touch, thinking they shorted the bake time and the bad one was first out. I loaded all of them in my old rabbit and about died from the heat on the way home. Had to be 100 with the windows down. I was nice a pressure washed the oil off the leaky sunfire hubs, the worst company I have ever dealt with x10. If anyone is shopping for aluminum hubs buy elsewhere.
Cj8, here's a pic of the 205 with the top plate for another 4400 I'm doing that's going behind a 6l80.

CORNFED 16 hours of driving home from the leduc offroad swapmeet so i guess its a great time to update this.
We made it down to the lakebed thursday night late. Got everything unloaded and head out with Tim from from Crawl to shoot it in the afternoon Friday. He shot about 840 pictures of it over 4 or so hours. Checked everything over sat am and took it for a quick rip, man the thing handles unreal. Amazing what 13 inches uptravel will do, even before messing with the shocks. Chris from Alltech helped on the shocks, Fox shipped everything way off what it was supposed to be. Dickk came down sunday night and got to run some trails in it. I codrive in a 4800 buggy so I was focused on that from Sunday on. A guy from Toyota driver came into camp on wednesday to shoot it and Dickk and him went to shoot it, that when the roll happened. He said everything was shot on video so hopefully there's some video since I actually never heard it outside on the throttle.
Everything pretty much worked great, had an issue with the wiring for the fuel pump relay in the engine harness, that was it. And it's in limp mode every time it's started so we just left the programmer plugged in and cleared codes before starting it every time. Tried every morning to get 208 to take time to tune it, which never happened. I've heard from alot of pepole he caters to the big name guys, I'm not so..... I think the 6l80 will be really cool once it actually works right. For now it wants to be in 2 higher gears and downshift 2 gears when you hammer it, which is not good if you get in trouble in the rough. 1st gear is great in the rocks with the 205.
It didn't get raced because we didn't get it done in time to get any miles on it first.
The catalyzed clear from the can held up pretty well, the stuff mixed and shit from a fun not so much. The rustoleum from a can that's all in the cab seemed to hold up great.

Josh40601 here are the pics.

You know you have a bad ass rig when it looks bad ass sitting on its lid. And after it is rolled over it only has dents and scratches

from the pics, it just looks like the body and paint are jacked up. The buggy itself doesn't look affected. I'll see if I can get a pic
