Re: Hard Trails

There is a big difference between Brutal and Smasher.

Smasher is fun trail full of options and allows you to pick your poison. Smasher definitely opens opportunity for pucker factor for many different build levels. It's probably going to be best suited for medium fun run and will still have plenty of fun lines for the braver more built rigs.

Brutal lives up to it's name in every sense of the word. Before the trail even begins your rig will be tested with a hill climb. I'd have to say if you can't make it up the hill you have zero business even trying Brutal. There was one smaller build than My XJ. He was on 31's locked f/r and a good driver. Even with the drivers skill level the rig was taken to the breaking point twice. While one on 31's might be able to drag their rig through there. It's not going to happen unscathed or broken. This trail is better suited for much bigger builds. Given what we saw yesterday and how much this trail demands. Be cautious about running this trail.

The planning committee is currently coming up with build level requirements for these two trails.
