So yesterday morning I was invited to the "Flat out good time" run hosted by Daystar international. Thought I would just post a few pics for ya. Rally point was @ 7:30am at the Spanish Arena, where the Daystar crew hooked us up with breakfast and sign in that included a few goodies. Smile I got some wicked trail gloves, shirt, a backpack, other odds and ends and a very nice cam can for my rig.

The first really fun obstacle is the chute. This guys line is totally optional.

At the top of the chute is an optional section called the waterfall. This was the only part of the trail I opted out on.

This is what a rig on 37"s and a Hemi look like coming up the waterfall.

Yup, Jealous.... I am not really into celebrity stuff, but it would have been pretty cool to wheel with Ian!

Glad your having a good time! More Pics please!

Some of those new Falkin MT tires that haven't been released for sale yet. Got to see them in action as some of the Daystar guys was running them thru their paces on this JK8

Tereflex rig coming down Easter egg hill. No one crunched metal here but a few came close.

My view of the Nukizer rig taking his turn down Easter egg hill in front of me. Yes they are trying to keep the rig from tipping over and it was close.

Move. My turn.

This shot gives u a better idea of Easter egg hill. The Easter egg under this rig wants to throw u into that rock on the left. And believe me. There are plenty of marks on that rock.

The last obstacle of the day.. The intimidator. No picture I can post will give you the effect of actually experiencing it
To the left in this pic is around a 500 ft canyon. U only get about 12" of play on the passenger side. Depending on the width of your rig

And last we went back to town and I had Metalcloak run my rig on their CTI to score my flex and check for any issues after our run

Scored an 830. Got a few ideas for improvement. Everything is still working great and hey. I drove all the way from silt to Moab. Wheeled all day with crazy rigs and drove all the way home same day and no issues. I'd say that makes my rig pretty solid
