not to bad.

took my old lx bogging once. cars wash had to send it through 3 times to get it clean.

from the doors forward you could see out the windsheild only where the wipers would touch! lol Hitting 2-3 foot water/mud holes at 35mph was fun! lol

I went muddin in my scort GT back when puddles were abundant offroad! I didn't get stuck and I drove through puddles that were coming up to the top of the bumper, I made a snorkle so I didn't suck water! my buddy also followed me in his lifted jeep to push me if I hydrolocked lol, never happened and I had a blast!

someone told me I couldn't mud in my scort, so I did!

Took the tracer mudding once, Got stuck about halfways down the road because of some big truck ruts. A cop came bitched me out then asked me how the hell did I make it that far. Luckily the guy that came in pulled us out in his mudding truck had a slednecks sticker and the cops liked slednecks. But everyone was amazed how far I made it lol

^ small cars + big ruts don't mix well at all :lol: I remember last march i took the escort with snow tires and followed my buddy in his ford ranger up some dirt(mud lol) roads and he was suprised i was able to make it all theway. i think these cars do alright in the mud is because they are so light.

yeah I was amazed myself at how far I could make it, but deep ruts=no no lol, scraped the bottom pretty bad on some high rut mounds but still man these cars being FWD and light works for them! if you raised it up about 2 more inches it'd be hard to stop unless you hit a big mound or hill.

great stories guys! fun times!

here is a pic of my mudding fun with my bud and his jeep, I'm in the jean jacket pointing at my scort obviously! :D


so much fun!

yeah...... you shoulda seen it after the mud dried LOL, took forever to get all the mud outta the driver side window track, I just took it out and put the hose on it lol.

but it was SO worth it, and the 4k miles worth of wear I put on the front tires spinning em at 60 going 10 mph, mud and dirt chews up tires fast! but worth the fun :D

yeah my engine bay is still somewhat dirty looking but I don't care, when I pull the head off again I'll clean the firewall up and brake booster etc.

I had just finished my exhaust a few days earlier, polished it up nice, went mudding, it looked like mud so I repolished it and the oil pan got messed up too, so I'm still working on the dirt damages months later ha ha, course I went through puddles that were DEEP ha ha, I've got a good trans and new clutch so no more of that for meh! that is when I made it run and drive OK and I just got it through emissions so I was celebrating by kicking the tar outta it. it was a one time, 2, 3, 4, 5 time thing no more :p ha ha. that's what the green jeep is for ;) which now it's a yellow jeep and very nice! 8.5 inch lift ;) that's only a 3 inch lift in that pic of my car and his jeep, oh yes!

keep em rolling guys whether it be on dirt, ice, pavement, water heck keep em rollin!
