Yup,mud needs tire speed or it's all over.  Fricken Sherps are cool things though! BTW,welcome to the site!

Yep,good vids and looks like a fun place especially not having to worry about who is coming at you with the one way thing but might get a bit old quick with so little differing terrain. I know I would have fun but not enough to make a trip. You ,on the other hand,will be quite glad you made the trip to LS for sure! Great prep for a St.A trip...... ;D ;D

if i remember right the brocks aluminum clutch mod ( posted link on last page ) is like 1.7lbs lighter than stock and balanced.  fabr i have no doubt that many have welded them together and ran them but thats a fair amount of rotating weight imo.
The rotating weight is within a tight rotating radius. The few inch/grams it could possibly be out is inconsequential. The mass to accelerate is basically the same thing due to the very small rotating radius. Pretty much a non issue unless drag racing looking for another possible hundredth or more likely a few thousandths of a second. I mean,do you balance your frictions and steels in the clutch? Nope,why not? Because the few inch/grams out doesn't matter.  The Brocks aluminum part is not balanced at all (neither is the stocker),it is just machined and if the thing is machined accurately ,which can be doubtful in the aftermarket,it is inherently good but it is not balanced after machining. The balance is dependent on machining precision.

Until St.A gets overran with people it is my preference . 24 hour drive either way for me so I'll take St.A first. LS is 4 hours for me soooooo guess why I bought a place there. ;D Ya,LS is only 1500+- acres but there are a few pretty tall dunes especially with now much they have changed at the north end the last couple years .I've never seen this much change in this short a time before. Buttercup is almost gone,IMO.

Russia's Unstoppable 4x4 Finally Meets Its Match In Texas

<p>More than two years ago we were introduced to the Sherp–a heroically unstoppable 4x4 tractor thing from Russia with 63-inch tires. I sort of figured it would be relegated for official use only. But don’t worry, some mud-bogging boys got ahold of one and plopped it into a pit of Texas clay.<br />
</p>

This is from the fine folks at . RSS Feed via Jalopnik, some good, some bad, but always something to talk about.....

Haha. Finally. Nothing can beat Texas.

i have a few videos i have spent 20 plus hrs editing. been years and dont do that anymore lol

nice videos btw. the first one looked like a really wide fast trail. that looks like a blast. the vehicles lined up on the dunes like doves on a powerline seems to chboke the flow down. nice flatter straight away to open your toys thats always a must! havent watched the 2nd yet and will but i would suggest waiting until LS to adjust rebound for high speed hits  ;D
