That thing sucks. He has zero control over it. His solution was "MORE THROTTLE!!!" to every obstacle, and knocked over a ton of trees, and fully tore up that trail to future use! He couldn't even get over some easier stuff, because of the power!

That's one way to make it over a TANK TRAP though!

The technique appears to be to floor it and hope for a lucky bounce.

Did anyone else see the breakage coming?

You couldn't pay me enough to be that guys copilot. When you're going that fast and that out of control in the woods a limb could easily poke through his cage and end his life. Reminds me of watching Baja Racing. Only from a safe distance.

Makes for good entertainment though.

That is what people think of when they think of us driving on trails. I do not know anyone who drives like that.

I was amazed @ how little control the guy has- as Bill said its all about the right bounce.

I'm told that that particular off-road area is a former coal mine, so he's not damaging the environment any more than it it already has been.
But still, that rig is absolutely pointless IMO. I fail to see the skill requirement to operate that (more like the stupidity requirement). Like Pierce said, all it would take was one misplaced tree branch and you're done!


The devil inside me wants to take this thing full speed and mow down what's left of the Occupy Wall Street demonstrators or maybe a Greenpeace demonstration.
