    On the bright side of your Raptor getting delayed, you'll have a couple extra months to schedule your trip.

    Wish there was an East coast version.

    I have to point out....looks like all those trucks had bead locks. Kind of like at the GT350 track attack all the cars had track pack.

    I didn't watch the whole thing this time. But the truck he is in in the beginning just has the BL capable wheels, not the actual BL ring on.

    I was there in late September, exceptionally well run event, had a great time. Truly amazing what you can do with the trucks. I think all of the trucks had the Bead Lock capable, only a couple had actual bead lock rings. I asked about it and they said originally they were planning to convert all to the true bead lock, but they found it wasn't needed. I believe the run the tires at around 28 psi and they have never had a problem.
    Great time, if you can find a way to go, I highly recommend it!

    Just got back, excellent program. It is correct that most of the trucks were bead lock capable but not actual bead locks. Out of the 18 or so in our program maybe 1 or 2 were actual bead locks. Instructor said they've never had one throw a tire.
