    OMG...That video was the coolest thing I have ever seen. /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif

    The dude in the GM truck with the snorkel that did the full throttle, brick-on-the-gas-peddal attack on the Tank Trap thing...OMG. Umm...OMG /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif That was umm...inspiring. Any specs available on that truck? That is exactly the kind of beating I want my truck to be able to survive. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I did the video. Robin drove the truck. It was our first run ever on rocks . The truck basically had 4 hours of wheeling time on it since the rebuild. It worked great.

    We will be making an offical full length video that we will sell. There was huge carnage on many trucks and there is wicked footage. Whatever monies are raised from the video will go into next year's event. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
