Teamwork can be key when trying to make it through tough situations, and these off-roaders totally understand that.

We would never recommend trying to drive a vehicle through swift moving water…unless of course your machine of choice is a remote control car.  The owner of this Jeep Cherokee RC car isn’t afraid of a little water.

La Rioja, Argentina – Stage 10 in this year’s Dakar Rally was a much shorter stage than yesterday but featured much of the same narrow WRC-style course. Given this, Robby Gordon and navigator Kellon Walch knew that it would not be suitable for the SPEED Energy / Toyo Tires / MAPEI HUMMER.

Starting fourth today allowed Gordon to keep pace with the 4wd cars in order to stay within reach. Gordon put on a spectacular show with his vehicle, pushing corners through river crossings and jumping cattle crossings, ultimately giving the locals a reason  to cheer. Gordon finished fifth, 6 minutes and 51 seconds behind the stage winner.
