At one point, I noticed both of Marc's entries were very close together, and both at 0 mph. I'm going to go out on a limb and say the backup car was UTILIZED FOR THE FRONT DIFF, AND WITH ONLY 2WD, mARC DECIDED TO PARK THE PARTS CAR. Ahh fuck! Hate that cap lock key.
I still don't understand why 2wd is so debilitating for the utes. It seems to suit all of the other classes just fine.
I believe Marc's front diffs have complete custom internals built using un-obtanium materials by the folks over at Fortin. Marc has as much money in his drive train as some do in their entire vehicle (minus acquisition cost of car, obviously.)
"Baja 1000 update. Jason started and was running to plan. He was 5th to 7th position up to mile 110. Car was strong. Had the first pit stop and while fueling a flash fire burst the car in flames. Rear of car burnt. 3 guys were mildly burnt. Jason was hit good. One person was rushed to San Felipe hospital to be treated. Thanks to Matt Burroughs team for the help getting our teammate to the hospital. Now we are driving him to the states for further aid. Our guys repaired the burnt parts for an hour. We fell to 20th place. Jason continued to 290mm and moved up to the top 11 physically. He handed the X3 off to Logan who is now picking off positions and is working into the top 8. We still have over 800 miles to go and we will fight to put the x3 on the box. Last report is the car is fresh and strong. More to come . Dan will get in at 540mm"
Wayne hasn't updated for like 5 hours now. Still shows him at RM209. But he should be well beyond that.
Kristen has been down for a while at RM 171. I just heard her try to raise weatherman on the radio but she didn't come back. Hopefully she isn't calling in to say they are out. I couldn't tell if they are stuck on course or in a pit working on the RZR. they are in an area where they could be in a pit.
