Check out the GPS tracker posted earlier, it shows he was wandering around. This is why I asked and just remembered, "turtle" was on scene first, so surely he would have pressed it. Must have been a malfunction. Worst case scenario.

I'm not sure what you mean, I don't follow desert racing so you'll see I already asked about the GPS tracker. Now i see something about an SOS button on the bike they pushed when the other riders arrived on the scene. Wouldn't you think KC would been ... more »

One more question - this "SOS" button they speak of. I'm assuming it's on every bike and race vehicle right? Can they confirm if KC pushed this button for help after he crashed? I figure it's just another part of the tragedy if he pushed the button and ... more »

Got it, sounds like system was down or the tracker wasn't running real time, what a bummer.

Yep, sounds like karting. I'm able to load and unload by myself but definitely need help at the track with lifting on/off the stand. There are always someone at the track who needs the same help I do so it's just a buddy system. Just stay away from the

Ahhhh, that explains it. I figured technical difficulties might be the case down in baja. Well that really sucks, what a damn tragedy from all angles.

Hahahaahaha, you only learn this after you've made the plunge. The weather station and Nitrogen tank are included in the "shit ton" of stuff I mentioned for karting, I have those as well and the list goes on for days. So many variables, even at the same

Cam, after reading your response I have a few questions considering I do not follow desert racing so I'm not familiar with the tools the promoters use to track the riders. You mention a GPS tracking system which I would assume is standard for all desert ... more »

So do you guys think they will actually allow the footage to go public of him railing down a sand wash straight into the side of a cow at full speed? (assuming that's what happened).

I doubt you would ever see the GoPro footage even if it was recording at the time of the accident. Those batteries only last so long.

You definitely need to consider the setup piece heavily. If you are very competitive and want to win you will have to learn how every little 1mm adjustment affects your handling, and you have to nail it while chasing the changes in track/air temp and

Rock, the DD2 is pretty much dead, it was crushed with the economy. Unless you are competing at the regional/national level or world finals you would be lucky to see a field of 3 DD2's a local race. It's a great package but way too expensive. The Senior ... more »

Grieby, This is going to turn into a novel, but I'll keep it a short novel as I don't want you to make a mistake. Just know that most guys getting into karting from moto make the wrong decision and end up realizing they should have "listened".... coming

wear ear plugs for better focus...it's easier to focus on your own breathing, and also tunes out the other unwanted "noise", not necessarily engine noise.
