My KOH Experince.

This year I went to KOH to volunteer and test the truck. I was assigned to amazing locations to do race and crowd control.

I rolled in around 3 am Wednesday


Wednesday: My first location that I performed crowd/race coarse control. It was really cool to see the start/finish of the UTV race and meet all the drivers.

Cars rolling out for KOH qualifying.




Thursday, Friday: I was stationed at RC 1. It was out in BFE and near the Marines Base.

Tuesday was the EMC race.















Friday was the KOH race. I took more video on this day.




My carnage.

This happen while looking for a camping spot in the dark. I turned left to cross this wash and the next thing I know my axle is hung up.

I have some issues to work out.... I was able to catch one of the SAW guys and figured that the valving in the shocks is way to stiff on rebound and compression. So back to the drawing board for new shock mounts and valving.

Thank you, the pictures were taken by my phone. That's to bad that you do not have time but there is always next year.

Couldn't you just flip the rear hangers so the shackle would hang down instead of up?
