Over backward

Hey @Snowhawk2015 sometimes it's easy, sometimes it's hard.

When @Snowhawk2015 and I did this obstacle we looked at each other after and said, well that was way easier than expected...

Driver error? 1. Too far right, 2. Giving it gas, 3. Getting it bouncing. 4. Tires looked like they are not aired down.

A lot to be said for KL low CG and longer wheel base.

Being manual didn't help either, if the clutch hit the floor he would have rolled out.

Yes, we both (@snowhawk2015) did it in our KL's and according to the crowd we both made it look easy. To be honest after doing it I felt very let down that the Trailhawks made it feel easy, I did it in a Yamaha Rino 10 years ago and it was a lot more dramatic lol. I had the front tires come up like in the above video but I let it roll back down no brakes then moved left to make it a bit easier and it went up with the tires spinning.
