the maiden voyage!
...was a bust. About 15 minutes into the park the malfunctioning detroit in the front axle decided to blow my center ujoint in half. So i got into the play area, but never actually saw a trail.
5 minutes before that dave blew the same joint and it split the stub shaft in half. Later on Ox broke his traction bar on the rear axle in half, and with the portals he has so much axle wrap without that bar that we had to bring his back out too. Will punctured another gas tank, but we managed to patch it with some gum & he continued on. Later on while going thru a water hole a chunk of ice came up and knocked his serp belt off, but luckily didnt damage it and we just put it back on.
Steve slashed one of his brand new X-Terrains, and then lost 4 of the 5 studs on that wheel when the lugnuts must have backed off due to the spare tire being on an aluminum rim, so we ended up pressing 2 new studs into the rotor on the trail, and then putting 3 more in on the trailer in the hotel parking lot when we got out.
