Of course in hindsight its easy for us to judge, but I blame the spotter 100% b/c the driver is following instructions and doing what hes told. Of course he could have said, "nuh lady.." but he didn't know any better and was extending trust to learn to rock crawl..

"it's gonna slide" yeah it's gonna slide and flip the fuck over.

"I thought" you thought wrong bitch!

"it's not your fault" no, it's definitely your fault, and the dumb fuck driver
Sadly, I am one of those people that find amusement in watching these mishaps. As long as no one is injured its all fun. These people who wreck their toys either have money to burn, shit for brains or both. I would never risk abusing a new vehicle of mine like this for recreational fun. To each their own.

Oldie but goodie... regardless of having a good spotter or not..not knowing your vehicles threshold as far as getting ready to flop is on the driver and on no one else, that driver ovviously did not know his.There are very few I trust 100% when it comes to spotting on the trail

Exactly... actually there is NO ONE I trust with 100% until they've proven themselves..

I've had drivers shake off my directions before & thats fine, I make them understand that they're on their own, I excuse myself & become a spectator
