    Heres the pic we got of my friend Ben jumping one of his hummers. At the crest of his flight the skid plates were about 7 feet off the ground, he could have easily cleared a car. He had to be sore in the morning after the landing, it bottomed the bumpstops HARD and bounced twice. I'm amazed nothing broke, I guess they really are built like a tank! [​IMG]

    I'd say he was doing about 45. He flew a bit longer than he planned and landed in a bunch of bushes and small trees. Someone has a video of it but we're still trying to find it.

    I've never actually seen one hit, but I've seen the aftermath. The tires can bounce over a mile away. I don't think thats much of a waste, I'd take my old CUCV that I drove through Iraq over a Hummer any day!

    I checked the videos page but decided that the corporate network folks might take issue with me downloading a 108MB file! [​IMG]
