    Peanut Gallery possible, or walk the trail and take video/pictures.

If you hit all of the LT buggy lines, than the CD main fall and last notch are more difficult, but you would feel fine with the rest of the climbs. UT is really no comparison, unless you hit the one notch. That will give you an idea of the driving skill required on CD. Would it be next as far as progression? A big Yes!

    I'm currently armored-up with 35's but might be on 37's by then. It's on my upgrade list so might do it sooner than later if I can get the funds by then.
    CD is an awesome trail and what I ran when I wanted to step up to the next level. I was on 35's, SWB TJ, locked F and R and set up for recovery. I had enough armor and strength in my axles to run it reliably. Still broke a factory Rubi rear locker on the old exit... It is a great way to learn some new skills. The trail is narrow in spots and is a series of falls, as it climbs out from near the river bottom. The falls vary in height and difficulty. It's all in a night's work, if you feel up for it.
    yah, Huck you newbie, Rubicon drivin', mall Cruisin', bling-bling, bolt-on, got no drivin skillz, drove thru a AutoZone with a crap magnet attached, H2 wannabe, poseur! Pay attention!
    If you would pry your sorry arse out the Scottsdale Fashion Square once in a while you would know more about the BLM and the USFS (you do know those acronyms, right?).

    And not to mention you will have some EXCELLENT spotters there. This run is designed KNOWING you are new to this level, and folks will take the time to help you learn. If you are up for the pucker, it is a great opportunity Poi Boy.

    I’d love to go hit this one, been running LT buggy lines and only got stuck on the last obstacle before the exit prior to UT (been running without lockers and with) and unfortunately, Im currently disqualified by the “two operational lockers caveat” hahah... if I can fix it in time, then I’m in

    I had so much fun riding with LO PHAT last year and learned a lot about what it takes to do this level. Maybe some day in the dub but I'll do the peanut gallery this year or if there is an extra seat I'd love to ride along and help out, take pics.

    I just saw the video couldn't believe it. Something so easy that could potentially save your life, why not belt? Don't get it.

    You run it since last year, Pierre? If no...drive again. You know what to expect, so now fine tune and use less.spotter. always good to grow. Jump in behind me. I don't really like "spotting", but I will drive the lines...you just follow.

    As for spotting, on a trail/run like this, my feeling is that the attendees should have a pretty good idea for what to basically do. I like to observe... letting the "new" driver feel it out, show them the basic line, but not walk them thru 100%. Not much growth from that, in my opinion.
