    Worked for me, thanks for posting!

    Crazy how good those guys are, making it through sections with no lockers that I probably couldn't do *with* lockers!

    If you missed it, here is the full race (11 hour) stream. I will try and repost/edit this with Gladiator sighting time stamps.

    3h 35min - Finish first loop, in pits for driver change.
    7h 14min - Co-pilots from gladiator spotting other vehicles
    7h 35min - Crawling in Jackhammer (post race interview, "aftermarket lockers failed, no lockers for rock sections.")
    7h 41min - Lower right hand corner of picture in picture, in Jackhammer north.
    7h 55min up to 8h - Jackhammer crawling / Jeep train.
    8h 16min Crawling with just a little push from another racer.
    10h 42min- Gladiator becomes official finisher of KOH EMC.

    Thanks for sharing!

    The Gladiator (car #5337) finished in 43rd place (with a time of 10:04:17), which is commendable considering the majority of the field does not even finish this event.

    If i knew you were going to do this, i wouldn't have figured out how to screen capture the race, then edit out the sections, and then host them, and then post them. :angry::angry::angry:

    Oh well.......it was fun to watch. Thanks for posting this, their full video is higher resolution too.:CWL:

    43rd overall sounds a bit rough, lets go with the Gladiator finished 6th in class!

    Of the 133 cars entered in EMC, 48 finished, 45 finished in time and the rest were DNF. That's 36% completion. The fact that the Gladiator made it, and made in within the time allowance is more then impressive.

    Jeep should take this things to auto shows as is like ford did with that raptor that did the baja 1000.

    I hope they distill a story out of this, and share it. Was it 43rd in the 4600 class? Or in all of the different groups (including modified.) Definitely needs a lot more details to see what the other 42 were.
