    Before I got the video, I thought I went to \"top truck challenge\" now....

    I'm pretty sure it was really "top tit challenge". i think having a woman involved in the narration was great, we need women involved, mostly so they'll let us keep playing, but she could have worn a little less silicone. I knew what to do if I ran out of RTV. :-0 SHOW US THE TRUCKS!
    Needless to say I'm pretty disappointed in the video. I don't even remember seeing any mention of the tow test! There was some pretty good breakage and none of it was shown at all. There were some cool takeoffs in the acceleration test, and some interesting braking maneuvers and none of that made the cut.
    Boooooooooooooooooo.
    I was pretty happy with the coverage of the mini rubicon though.

    I don't have a problem with that...[​IMG][​IMG]
    I haven't seen the video yet, but I was under the impression it was all the action...not just bits and pieces of it.

    They prevent other media and spectators attending so they have a lock on coverage then produce crap?
    I will not but it then. The mags are getting soft also. Bummer.

    Yeah, they could have showed more events and competitors, I totally forgot about the tow test, what else did they conveniently forget to cover? I thought the part where, let's call here Bambi, went for a ride in the white Ford in the mud bog was pretty stupid.
    The mini rubicon was very cool though, you were as giddy as a school girl. [​IMG]

    I bought the 97 tape
    the cheap porno soundtrack has me leary about giving them any more money
    why would an automotive journalist not understand that what i want as a soundtrack is the sounds of the action?
    so this $50+ one is all bimbo???

    I haven't seen the newest one, but after buying a couple of the past TTC tapes I will agree with Stephen. Sure, hot chicks are nice but when I buy a truck video I want to see the trucks, each one of them for each of the entire events. The last one, either '99 or '00, had a bunch of stupid fast motion clips and all of the events were shown in short clips making them real choppy.................no more TTC video's for me.

    BTW, the Rick Russel videos are produced the way the TTC should be.

    Rene, don't waste your money. I'll send you my copy to check out. it was painful to watch that holleywood blvd. reject mutter out a word

    Bimbo: What is that contraption on the back

    5.0 Jeep: It is a air tank.

    Bimbo: I bet that helps!

    After a bit i just fast forwarded whenever i saw her.

    If i was the F-150 driver i would have pushed her out of the truck and into the mud...

    They did show all of my mini rubi run, and most of brian in the 'trap, and the S10 in the logs, so those are good clips, but someone could edit out that 7 min. of tape and have 90% of the good stuff from the tape.

    Re: Before I got the video, I thought I went to

    I just got done watching Zakk's copy of the tape; all I can say is that is two hours I'll never get back. Your Mini rube run rocked! The tank trap looked painful though...[​IMG] How much body damage did you end up with?
    On a business level, I guess I don't understand the use of restricting access for spectators, then serving up crap like that tape... I need to look back at the issues of the magazine, but I was dissappointed with this year's tape after having seen the past years.

    Re: Before I got the video, I thought I went to

    I just pushed the mirror into the door some, nothing really serious. After that I went to Kremling and wadded up the LF fender.
    with the front locker I doubt I could have driven that hole with no body damage, but I know I could have winched it with no damage. But if's don't count now.

    Re: Before I got the video, I thought I went to

    I borrowed last years tape and boy I'm glad I BORROWED it. All it did was make me mad. How anyone can play crappity "porno" music during the acceleration test is beyond me. I wanted to hear some V-8 music. Aslo, I wanted to see each vehicle make its run on EACH obstacle in its entiretey. I can understand resticting the spectators just for the sheer logistics of it, but please sell me a better tape. I would pay the obscene amounts of money they want for it if it was good. Someone should send our venting to 4wheelparts/fourwheeler.

    I thought the video would have been like last year's. They really didn't put much in to it this year. :(

    If it's not broke...Why fix it?

    I guess we need to send it to fourwheeler, maybe individual emails would be best, let the writing begin.
    Not sure of the email addy, check the "letters" section in the current mag for the editor's email.

    Re: Before I got the video, I thought I went to

    Holister is BLM run if I remeber correctly. The restriction on spectators probably had more to do with that. At Dixie run they didn't tell anybody where the rock crawl was because of some rules about spectator sports on public land. I don't know the wording but at Dixie run the organizers got the riot act because of the crowd. Something about proper security, bathroom facilities, insurance, etc.

    Re: Before I got the video, I thought I went to

    but the point still remains that if you are gonna delay the release of an anticipated video, make sure it does not suck! I REALLY liked the 2000 tape. I thought the ORD Jimmy would be covered like that. If you are gonna steal $40+ dollars from hard working people at least wear a mask...

    Re: Before I got the video, I thought I went to

    TTC is really not set up for spectators at all, and I think they do the right thing to limit it as much as possible. They don't have the facilities or manpower to do crowds, so keeping it quiet and guarding the gates is the only way to keep it under control. I've seen what a mess the rock crawls can be and they definitely can't do that! But you would think they would have awesome coverage of it to make up for the lack of access.
