    On a spur of the moment thing we ended up going to the monster truck show saturday night in Anaheim. Even got pit passes. We actually went over and talked with the owner of the Bounty Hunter, Scarlet Bandit, and one other truck. He let us come in and check out his hauler and trailer. He talked with us about all kinds of stuff, SUPER nice guy. It was a blast despite it being FREEZING!! anyway onto the good stuff

    Scarlet Bandit--NOW this was my favorite. This was a BRAND NEW truck. this was it's first show. It was also the girl driving's first race back in 2 yrs. I think that's what she said. The whole truck didn't have a spec of paint missing or a dirty part

    Scarlet Bandit..started her freestyle AWESOME but then you could hear the motor loosing cylinders. She then stopped soon after. On here exit the motor was spewing blue smoke and sounded to be runnning on 4 cylinders. So much for that BRAND NEW motor huh?

    El Toro Loco--had an AWESOME save where he landed on the side of another ramp and that kicked him onto his side. He stood on the throttle and spun it back onto all 4's :bow::bow:

    Digger took the win just Barely..I think Max D was better doing his run ona flat but Digger flopped it at the end and won.

    Overall a good show especially for Anaheim. The pits were really cool I've never done that. We're thinking of going back in 2 weeks for the last local show.

    Like wrasslin'. "Wrasslin' ain't fake" :haha:

    Seriously, actually, though it's not my bag, that's some SERIOUS engineering and fab work going on there.

    I haven't been to Monster Jam in years. I would go, but the arena here seems too small for it to even be fun.
