    Why would she tell him to turn into the grade? I thought pretty much one of the biggest no-no's of offroading is that you don't go sideways on a grade.

    You thought correctly. She had NO clue, yet the whole time she speaks with such authority, that's why it makes me so angry. Not to mention that fact that no one intervened, not a single on of those stupid shits. Someone should have come forward and said hey let's take a look at this and then at least if your proceed against my advice I've done everything I can to prevent you from flopping.

    "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

    Another example of jeep spotters trying to conjure up a witch potion while spotting.

    Reminds me of the pinyon mountain video from a couple years ago.

    I would have punched that dyke in the face. I guess the driver isn't too bright for listening to her either. I laughed at the end of it, you can hear her in the back "god dammit, I'm stupid"

    See build thread.
    It sounded like there were people mumbling in the background about it not looking right t something; too bad they didn't speak up. You know the driver knew it was a fcked approach too. Everyone's fault.

    Yeah, at second glance her failure was to not check the that front driver, she was watching the rear and that front driver climbed that little bump, dropped back down and he rolled. "he was on the line wasn't he?" No... I think had he been a little bit farther over he'd have made it like the AEV Jeep. I guess that's the line and that's a sketchy fucking line but she fucked up regardless.

    At about :58 the AEV jeep has his tire right below that knob

    if you are coming close to a flop...
    get a strap or a fat boy on the corner and hold it down as it tips
    at least you can save 10,000 in damage :D

    it was very clear to all that was going to happen
