Absolutely! I don’t usually have OCD that bad but that bothered me a lot haha
Give us the report!!!
If you have the chance, you absolutely have to do it. The instructors were absolutely great, and stayed engaged the entire time. They constantly gave real-time feedback to the individual drivers. Even if you’re an advanced off-road driver, I’m confident every one of us could learn something from them, and I got the feeling that they’d give you just enough rope to get to your own limit in some of the more challenging sections.
It was definitely not just some dude-ranch marketing bullshit. It was a legit school session.
ETA: I gather from here that the jump is the star attraction. Don’t get me wrong, it was cool to experience, but it was also highly structured (I’m sure for good reason), and kind of anti-climactic.
That said, it was cool just for the reason that it was added because of student out-brief surveys. It says a lot that they would do that.
In response, I suggested they needed to add a parallel-parking exercise, so you better get there soon.
I agree. The key was maximizing speed which meant going as fast as possible without spinning the rear wheels too much since they make you do it in 2H to save the drivetrain on landing. It wasn't all that challenging. The jump I took in 1975 in a '62 Chevy PU was way more exciting because I rolled along on the front wheels for what felt like forever waiting for the rear to touch down while wondering if the front bumper was going to catch on the pavement and flip me end over end. But it had no seatbelts and the gas tank was six inches from my ass. In comparison, RA was very anticlimactic.
LOL I'm glad I already went. I asked for more laps on the course instead of the jumping. The laps were the highlight for me. It would be nice if they gave you a choice between the two, but I didn't think to ask for that.
Found A little spot for some Off Roading fun!
Start/Stop Button: Tiny detail, real carbon fiber, inexpensive, and allows the stock start button lighting to show through.
It's super helpful when you don't post where this is available!
I like that a lot. Googleing now
Just don’t click the carbon fiber option Tuffskinz... unless you don’t mind their price. It’s an insulting number in my opinion though.
Does this count as a raptor mod?? Let it snow!!
