Windrock Trip 9/2019

Another trip in the books! We headed to Windrock for a couple of days of fun and of course it delivered. We were there 4 days but only recorded one day. We start things off with my favorite trail in the park, good old trail 39.

Re: Windrock Trip 9/2019

Nice video as usual. What are the new tires you were referring to?

Back to Airplane Hill we go. We had done 39 a couple of months back and were able to get up this section but it was dry as a bone then. It was a little more challenging this time around.

Re: Windrock Trip 9/2019

Ole trail 39 is hard on parts. Chris knows all about that. As you will see in the video, his RZR decided it did not want to go up Airplane Hill. His RZR took a pretty bad beat down unfortunately. Luckily Chris was fine and Ruth got an opportunity to get a couple of good pictures taken.

Next up was Sonny, Joey and Brad. After seeing Chris roll it definitely made the guys think about it a little more. We were making great time. We made it to the bottom of Cadillac Hill in about 45 minutes and did the whole trail in just over an hour.

Re: Windrock Trip 9/2019

Chris gonna fix it or let insurance total it? What all was damaged? Read something in vid comments about a shock mount broken. Should be able to weld that up.

You should never underestimate the predictability of stupidity.

Re: Windrock Trip 9/2019

It is totaled. His insurance is covering it. Here is what he said in one of the comments on the video.

"I can tell you the LF shock mount broke during the flip, the doors were bent, all three frame sections were bent, the dash was pinched in, my switches stopped working because the couldn’t move, the rear tail light was busted, the rear fascia was bent, the front fender was ripped off, it just kept going. The repair estimate was $31,000."

Wow, sorry to hear. Hence why I usually winch at that spot, not much room for error. Folks - video does not do that spot justice, it's butt puckering.

Re: Windrock Trip 9/2019

Bummer. When I first watched the vid, it just looked like a fairly slow roll and possibly only cosmetic damage. Watched again and paid more attention to height of that drop and I'd guess that anything short of a full tube chassis crawler would have been equally damaged.

Believe it or not he actually got lucky by flipping on his side because if he had went over backwards it would have done multiple endos back down the hill. That ledge is 4-5' and on a steep grade. It could have been much worse! Glad he's okay.

Luckily he has insurance and they are covering it. Yeah that spot is really bad. I wish there was some way to show that through a gopro but it makes everything look easy. lol

Yeah the way he landed on the shock mount is what killed him. It broke the tab off and that whole side of the frame bent. I have rolled a couple of times and luckily I landed on the cage first instead of the lower frame. That Gatekeeper Designs cage ain't bending unless you roll it off a HUGE hill.
