    Near Sunset Crater which is by Flagstaff, AZ

    0W9A5639

    That wall is called the Chief in Squamish, BC. Weston, Malia, Emilee and I lived in the Vanagon for a month on this trip…. Together… haha crazy

    0W9A6477

    Near Smith Rock Oregon. This is where I cracked the exhaust in half and it sounded like a Harley all the way home the next week…..

    When I was trying to climb some towers near Hanksville, UT and hit a very muddy section… Dug it out a bit and winched it out (luckily the winch can attach to the rear hitch) Somehow those bushes in the background were able to pull the beast out. I dont think we would need the winch in this situation anymore….

    I’ve hiked the chief, it’s hugely popular for climbers but there is zero chance i’d do it

    hell I did not even like being on the top of it

    great pictures

    Jason built you a nice rig.

    I see why it was used-up & tired when it arrived here now. haha

     

    Check out the the race capture ap. I have installed the mk3 unit with the ECU to read all senders and display engine information on your phone.

    It takes a minute to build your dashboard, and get set-up. I’ve only had a little time to mess with it.

    This one? Ya, Jason killed it. What you guys have done after him is what he wanted the finished product to be. He is psyched to see what KCW has done to it. Going to be ultimate for sure  09F6C404-E97B-419D-85AC-5AE0F567A7A7

    Yep thats it. It uses a CAN system that I had little trouble getting set-up. Probably just need to read more tutorials and stuff. It has a lot of options for race track timing stuff. Most of which we’re not using.

     

    Friday night? Saturday morning?
