Default Off-Road question?

Can you have 3-4 passengers with you while off-roading? Or just tell them to take a hike and meet them at the other side of the mountain or sumthin'?

Good Luck in keeping them as friends after you tell them to take a hike.

I would say it depends on how serious the trail is.

Many times the passengers are nervous about riding through a section that may end in a flop or rollover.

Sometimes you need to lighten the load, or reduce the CG, and ejecting the passengers is the easy way to do it.

Definitely not for a whole trail, just sections.

How 'bout half and half (in case someone has to spot you going thru trail obstacles)? I know it'd suck to walk the whole trail just to watch someone drive.

It is like asking a passenger to open a gate. They probably don't need to spot the whole trail.

If the whole trail is that bad, you will probably be with a group, and there will be people wandering around everywhere.
