For those that have wondered about their BB performance off road... I was going on a hiking/fishing trip in Idaho yesterday and took my stock BB through some rough road. There were quite a few rocks and holes to dodge, and as someone who had no off road experience until yesterday, I was impressed. As I have looked, there was no underbody damage either. My wife and I climbed 2,000 feet of elevation in the BB. For those wondering, you have a capable car, even with a 1.5 L. Wish I had pictures of the road... but needless to say I was very impressed.
