Maybe not when it's happening, but after

When its happening, its not so bad. Its too quick to do much thinking. Its after, when you have to look at your squished rig and figure out what to do with it. That when it sucks, at least for me anyways.

But like Kevin says, he can spot you for that, he is rated expert in spotting you into a rollover. :eek::D

I was thinking about what I would do if it was me, and I'm pretty sure I would cut the top off and cage it, or maybe figure out some crazy fab, I don't know, maybe not sure, could make a fun project. Now I'm getting ideas for our black ex, hmm.

I really miss you two.

Mike, it looks like you lost power like the night run at Truckhaven. I remember you saying you having brake issues when you lose power. Pretty much what happened?

Brian, I did back off of the skinny pedal because it seemed I was going too fast, I don't remember the engine dying But Kris did said he is pretty sure the motor died. The brake issue had been corrected, before the wheel feel off, I was at times having to pump the brakes, but after that was repaired the brakes performed great, as I was going backwards, the brake pedal was solid. I thought I was going straight to the beginning point and was just going to ride it out ant get another start, I didn't realize I was coming down at an angle.

True dat, Once I realized that I was going over, my thoughts were just to hold on and ride it out, while rolling I was just gripping the steering wheel as hard as I could, those recardo seats that Jack himself installed keep me in place and now I swear if it wouldn't have been for those seats I would of bounced around more, the seats have what I call adjustable wings, and I had them adjusted snug on my rib cage.

Once out and regaining most of my senses, (luckily I don't have much sense so it didn't take long to regain most of them). my first thought was how much damage?
