    My son an I put in a hard weekend of seat time tring to prepare for TRR. We violate dirt roads between OKC and Tulsa. We are getting better at watching GPS and conversation between pilot and Co pilot. My biggest question is when you are running the track at TRR. Do you run traction control on or do you need to practice drifting the truck? 20191116_162051.jpg 20191116_162758.jpg 20191116_162051.jpg 20191116_162051.jpg 20191116_162758.jpg 20191116_162051.jpg 20191116_162758.jpg

    Off-road mode, traction control off and rear locked is how I run

    Drive to your abilities. If your finding your self driving around a bunch with it floored and waiting for the traction control to let go then you might be ready to try it without. Even with it off it do t feel like it lets me have it all.
    Baja 2wd everything off.

    Always turn your traction control OFF when offroading. TRR is an Awesome track!

    I am exited to give this a shot this weekend! on the TRR track will it require a lot of drifting? Are there any other driving techniques that a person should practice in their truck before going?

    The track at TRR is a mix of rocky technical sections and high speed sections. There are turns you can drift in and others that you need to slow down for. It’s a fun and very scenic track.

    a great place to go is Texplex in Dallas. There is a prerunner event every month there and next one is December 14th.
