mr. mc93yj, thanks for your video. its neat. thought about going that day to watch. just sit in my toy and watch...uhhh....professionals?
gotta comment please. i have only been there 4 times but always got the impression that the facility towed the line for event day. that management would have had checks in place to prevent that embarrassing stuff. the baby stuff ends and serious hats go on. proper equipment, proper everything. i didnt see the orange arrows.
What are the rules?.......did that clown just slip thru?...........what was with all the debris? loved that support staff he had!

any input or insight is appreciated.

google it............their website doesnt do it justice.........do a google map satellite and zoom in. some of the forest trails are visible and creeks covered by the trees.

that happen sat afternoon before the race.like all parks they have rules just some peope don't pay attention to them.He had no business doing that jump witha stock rzr.race rules are pretty simple helmet,goggles,doors or nets they have changed the track in some parts for safety reasons but kyle warns everybody about that jump before every race it's really not that bad if you hit it at the right speed

And for going to watch pros at the badlands that's not gonna happen we run the trec race just for fun the money you win if you win does not pay for much it's more about bragging rights to the few guys that race every trec race.but if you ever get a chance to race next year I'm sure you would have fun.a 4 seater ran and he said it was the funnest thing he has done in a while

You guys should come down and run with us in 3 weeks October 24th. We pay $250 to win in each class and we have a bunch of gift certificates to give away too. Home We have a bunch of guys coming from Iowa with stock to turbos. I am working on a video of the course I just took. Try to get it uploaded soon.

Thats why I installed 5 point harnesses.

Guy was lucky he was only spitting out teeth imagine getting landed on by someone else.

I have a quick question, and please excuse my ignorance. I dont do jumps and I am not asking this to start, just curious. When you see a jump like this how do you know how fast you need to be going to stick the landing? I mean if you come up short its pretty unforgiving so it looks like you pretty much better get it right the first time........

Are there some sort of signs that get posted to let you know if its the first time you run the track? I havent ever noticed anything like that in any of the vids.... But it seems like a hard thing if you have to find out by experience! lol

I am not that fast to heal up and cant afford that many parts to repair mine... So I will stick to my rock crawling and just watch the jumps on you tube!

At this jump the owner of the park built it and jumped it first in his rzr to test it then let everyone know how fast to go he said 50 is a good speed lands you at top with smooth landing.myself I like the feel of jumping closer to bottom
so I go a bit faster But I will admit I have almost wrecked a few times from going to fast

So then you do usually get some sort of idea of how fast to go! Thats cool, and the price for not taking the advice is STEEP as seen in the video above...

Don't forget, you must be on the gas all the way up the ramp and let off in air, NOT before! Helps to keep the nose from dropping.

Pin it to win it! After seeing the aftermath of not clearing that jump, I salute you guys for having the balls to do it!
