The commander hit the dirt at the Slash X Poker run. I forgot how amazing the commander is in the hard dirt. Barstow is the offroad HELL for anything except a trophy Truck or Class 1 car. The terrain is insanely rutted up and rocky. There are obstacle just waiting to make your life and weekend a nightmare. Once you break good luck getting that UTV out of there..lol. The poker run had lots of cars XP, Rzr, Rhino, Teryx, VW buggys, custom trucks, bikes, etc.. and even though it wasn't a race guys were running all out. I felt sorry for vehicles without a REAL GOOD long travel. I've always been a desert guy but Barstow made me want to return to Glamis asap...lol Glamis with its huge bowls and fast but relatively smooth terrain was something that ran through my head as I hit endless whoops all day. These whoops were not like normal desert whoops but HUGE with rocks all over the place. It was a good day in the commander. BTW I recently got the diff replace (warranty) and the whine is gone. All I heard all day was the deep grunt of the rotax motor and the deeper roar of the muzzy exhaust. It was wonderful being able to hear the pitch of your motor. I actually had to re-learn the different sounds of car. The best part was running in huge whoops at top speed with the hum of the rotax motor running down a pack of XP drivers and pulling off to the side trail to past them.....PRICELESS. My rear suspension is a little tight but as long as I stay on the throttle and kept in it the car track true and straight. Andrew is going to fix the pre-load and the springs so that this makes the it handle even better.
