This morning the Tin Benders headed out to do Last Chance Canyon as a shake down for Snake Charmer (who totaled at TDS), and a DAY run for Fattkid. Eight rigs headed out and just about there, while still on pavement at 55mph, Snake Charmer did a left side two wheel maneuver that looked like he was going to try out his new Tin Bender/Fattkid built roll cage!!!!!!!! The steeering column seperated !!! Got it stopped and welded the shaft--- Hot Rod cut the sidewall on a rear tire, Stomper tore a bit of his sun shade top on a lay-over, Weatherman's teen age daughter did a great job of driveing the XJ !! (in spite of haveing her dad as spotter !), Snake Charmer tore both new front fender flairs loose and broke an ARB line, Fatkid got a few more dents and scrapes, Tin Bender on the other hand--- welllll-- layed it over on the side, dented both front fenders, both rear fenders, creased the right door, caved in and 'can openered' the left door, and broke off the front half of the left rear leaf spring !!! (took tie down straps to hold the rear axle fore and aft), and finished the trail. !!! Porch Puppy and a 'newbie' ran clean !! Eight rigs and 14 people---- a warm, perfect day in the desert haveing fun!!!!!

It's hard to see from where Krusty took the pics, but your climb'n pretty good when you make the corner where Fat Kid is. He's right on the edge of go'n over. In fact he did on the last night run...lol That little Sammy Flex's pretty good, right @1000 on a 23..
I'm with Fat Kid, Flex is HIGHLY over rated, hell I ramp a 560 and can more than hold my own....
