MADRAM11 T-SHIRTS, DVDS, AND MORE:
Little walk around of Peter Baslers new buggy called Momentum. This is the
first buggy he has ever built and it is Badass to say the least. It
features a 1100 horsepower Big Block that
runs on VP Race Fuel, Custom built Ouverson Rockwells, Custom built SCS
Straight Drive Transfer Case, PTC Powerglide transmission and many other
This buggy literally shakes the ground when it is sitting there idling. I
can't wait until he gets it on the side of a hill and holds it Wide Open.

Hummer H2, H3 & H3T vs Jeep JK at Beasley Knob
3 Hummers (H2, H3, & H3T) and a Jeep JK hit 93C at Beasley Knob. At the
first big hill climb 5:00, the H3s both spun their tires until winching and
towing themselves out. There was a stock Nissan Pathfinder that made a
valiant effort, and made it just as far as the H3s before getting winched.
The H2 made it through, but I wasn't there to see it - had to leave the
park for a bit to get the wife. I filmed myself going up the same section,
and the jeep did not spin a tire at all. You can jump to 11:47 to see the
JK hit it.
IMO the H3s failed due to a lack of articulation - no flex whatsoever in
the front. One had lockers, the other only limited slip, but it didn't
make much of a difference.
Jeep Willys with Tank Tracks
Bolt on tank tracks on a modified Jeep Willys powered by a Buick V6 engine.
The Tracks were manufactured by a company called "A. F. Wagner Industries
Inc." of concord California. They were made sometime during the mid 60s
and there was only 6 sets made and were apparently expensive and thus may
be the reason there were so few made. They are called "Wagner-Trac" and
were made specifically as a set of tank tracks for a jeep with a wheelbase
of 81 inches. The wheelbase is not adjustable so the wheelbase is critical
and just like a tank you would have to install turning brakes to drive the
Jeep because the steering is null and void as soon as you bolt them on.
They are all steel construction so were probably designed for offroad only.
Supercharged Jeep Rubicon Unlimited testing snow chains.
This isn't snow that has just fallen like your use to. It's snow that has
been on the ground all winter freezing and thawing. You could cut blocks of
it out, you can walk on top of it. The Jeep almost drove on top of it.
It's like clawing through a solid block of ice.
I didn't put the rear set on because I realized that I didn't have
clearance for them between my rock rail and tire. I'll trim it down and try
again. Just having them on the front made a significant difference.
End of the Road For This Weekend (part 1)
It was a bright and windy April day in the Cascade Mountain with 20 inches
of new snow on top of 18 inches the previous week. This time we had more
men and better materials to cross the avalanche chute. The avalanche danger
was minimal so we braved the drifts to see how much further we could drive
this weekend than the previous weekend. It took two hours to go 1/4 mile.
This is part one. Part 2 is at

Vid of B2:
This had to be the deepest the creek has ever been. Dave's iroc's performed
great. He wasn't able to get out but the vehicle was able to keep moving.
