Re: penrose 4-17

Just out of curiosity, those of you who have run BV Carnage and Patriot, which do you think is the harder trail to get through?

Re: penrose 4-17

BV Carnage. Patriot ain't much better with "Air Hole" and "Coffin Rock", but with the exit having changed/deteriorated like it has and is argueably easier now..... BV Carnage is just one long nasty trail that just keeps pounding ya.

Interesting. Well, seeing as I haven't run either in a couple years..... I can't say I've got a good current idea about either.

But from postings here and on other forums...... lots of rigs have driven the exit on Indy lately. Not many at all have driven the exit on Carnage. I think the sheer number of obstacles on Carnage vs. Indy keeps Carnage ahead as the nastiest of the two.....

Re: penrose 4-17

carnage is what, twice as long? and took half as long to run? im not talking about the time including the other rigs running. im talkin the time i was in my jeep driving....

ya carnage is rough the whole way and is in no way easy, id run carnage again before i look at patriot again.

carnage on 35's - gonna be a long day and gonna take some hits but it is definitely doable...

patriot on 35's - just stay home (and thats coming from THAT GUY who thinks you can do anything on 35's lol)

youve driven both more than me, but that is my opinion as of running both in the last month

Re: penrose 4-17

Maybe my info is a bit skewed because I've generally run 'em both with a "large" group (5+ rigs) so time is not really what I'm baseing the difficulty rating on, just the number and difficulty of obstacles on their own merit.

I've run Carnage both up and backwards and yeah, you can keep moving with good rigs.... I think Led and I ran Carnage backwards in about 45 min - 1 hour in an off/on light rain once we had winched down the exit...... getting set up to winch down took a while.

Re: penrose 4-17

im not basing it on time either, im using it as an example.

carnage bv is .9 miles long and took about 2 hours

patriot is .12 miles long. and took over 2 hours.

patriot, being 1/8th as long as carnage didnt take longer cuz it was easier....see what i mean?

i also think different rigs will have different times on the trails. me being super low was getting caught up all the time on patriot. where as if i was another 2-3" taller i would have been fine

Re: penrose 4-17

i will say this though. this is prolly the last time ill head down there with a large group of people that i dont know. there was a lot of mouth running (looked to be alcohol induced) and nut swinging going on. i like to go out with friends and have fun on the trail - not listen to people talk shit and ruin it for everyone else......
