Now you got it... remember i said that the vehicle was in the ditch and you had no access from the B pillars forward from the outside. That is not to say you couldnt have made rear access to the interior of the vehicle through the back window... and then cut the windshield, A pillars, and the top of the B pillars from the inside... and then if you wanted to cut he C post from the exterior. I was really hoping that you guys would have read it that way because you really made the other teams think twice.... especially when they came up to me and said... hey they cant do that. I was giggling inside thinking, they sure can and did a fabulous job at it. And yes you are right again... if you ever go to a wreck like that on the road and you perform a total roof removal like you did, i would give you all a standing ovation. It was perfect in the real world... for the jolt... your team just missed the fine details of not being able to cut the B post from the outside. I truly cant wait to train with you all again and show you a few new tricks... in my mind... Mira Rd Rocks... your attitude and commitment is fabulous... you guys made me proud... and did a fantastic job. I cant wait till this year.
i hope that helps brother...
I truly loved what you guys did... and think aboit it all the time because you all taught the rest of them that it was truly possible to do that. I had come comments afterwords where some teams said... hey that's not right... it made me laugh. if you guys would have slid in from the back and did all the work inside, you probably would have won... anyway there is always this year... so keep practicing... i look forward to seeing you all again sooner i hope.
Stay Safe Brother...
I have been so busy on the road and working on our web site and the DVD series i havent had a ton of time to put it in here like i was hoping to. Also thanks for the comments on the course at Mira Rd,,, it was also nice to see you all at JOLT and i look forward to seeing you all there again this year...
In the meantime... keep in touch and Stay Safe
