4x4 challenge pics costa rica 29 pics

sunday went to a track to see some 4x4 wheeling, had some fun, it could easily had rained over a feet of water during the 9 hours i was there, maybe more.

had a few pics from the bunch i have to post em. at the begining the 4 cyl had better chances passing and from 17 only 6 could go through. from the 6cyl class ony 1 came threw from 11 and from the 8cyl class only 1 came through out of 8.

and not all trucks were junk. there were some BA.. a couple frinds running in the 8cyl class had beasts... a red one had mech issues and the engine died on the first water hole.

the other one got stuck to hell. ill show pics of the rear tire later... 38's bogger with 3 inch wide chains and they looked like slicks....

onto the pics

here the "sliciks"
