I produced an awarding winning video of MOGFEST 2012 and have come to realize that Bozo Zesty had used his middle finger to show his ability to distort

Thanks Bozo Rolling Eyes

Dude, that's what even Everett Barnes calls the Samba Salute.

Nice clown though...

Oh, and I call BS on the award winning video Wink
Post it up.


No BS here Pal. I will re-post it after I cut Bozo out of all the pictures and video. It will take me like 2 hours to do and recreate. Thanks once again Bozo Rolling Eyes
Whatever it takes Wink

Award winning prior to ever being seen by the masses... Rolling Eyes


You call BS on my video? Do you think all I do is take stills of you and your finger antics when I stand in the middle of the pit with an orange vest and blinky light on? Think again Bozo. Question

It will be a far stretch better then the you post up, after I spend more time now to re-produce it, thanks again I can always count on you to be you Laughing But then everyone can. Classic Jeffery Wink
Thanks Friend. What's a middle finger between friends? It is the Samba Salute! Sensitive much?
Let's see this thing already Evil or Very Mad
I always enjoy your videos. I don't have the patience or attention span for editing. It's a well known Zesty character flaw

Oh, and one always must have a hand on the oh sh!t handle while riding with David. Please remove one of Bozo's hands now. Continuity error Arrow

All are imported ex military machines, mostly setup with the backhoe and loader, but a few have huge snowblowers attached with diesel pony motors.
The owner has been trying to get me to trade a Syncro for one.
Should I do it?
They look unbreakable.

Regarding FrankenSuby's axle failure, it is worth noting that the stronger 930 axles may be rotationally stiffer and allow for much higher peak axle windup forces. Axles are the shock absorbers of the drivetrain and we used to regularly test powertrains to be sure the axle would twist to absorb shocks like a tire spinning in air and hooking up on a rock. An axle is constantly twisting to absorb drivetrain forces even in normal street driving. By doing that, a stock axle lowers the peak force on things like diff gears and CV joints.

In my offroad experience, the conditions described are exactly when people often break components - spinning tires that suddenly hook up and create torque forces way above the engine's actual rated torque. Bang. I hate that sound...

JC, thanks for the vid of MF '12. One of these days I'll make it back out for the event, but in the meantime I'll relive it through the photos and vids.

Pete, you were all over that pit - and to think that's a daily driver! Applause Ever get that rear locker set up? I think it should be on the list for '13.

You truly were "The Pit Master" Cool David "Frankensubie" had the ballziest lines for sure. Zesty popped his cherry and popped a few vehicle parts aswell. Very Happy

Im guessing the propshaft skid rails are bent on this Van.. Burley makes some stronger ones Smile

Yes, my propshaft skid plate is bent to sh*t. So is my brand new propane tank which replaced the one I destroyed last year. I definitely need a stringer skid plate and side rails. My prop is actually hanging under the plate in one spot now. I added a decoupler for this year which made a huge difference. My goal for next year is to add front and rear lockers. The one time I had to be pulled out this year I would have been able to do with a rear locker. Pretty minimal on the carnage this year though.
