    As typical I spend 1,000's of dollars on my tough truck for the coshocton County race





    There was only two cars out of 91 entries that ran ( if you dont count the probe welded to 4" square tube stacked 3 high and then welded to a bronco frame) We ran one right after another.

    The first car got stuck on the 2nd jump on the track.

    The track was CRAZY. every bump in it was atleast 2feet tall and steep. Not a track designed for 2wd trucks, or cars of any sort.

    I took out the oil pan on the secodn jump, oil went everywhere and I lost oil pressure ( wonder why) I stayed on it hard and made it 34 of the way around the track to the 15-20ft table top, and launched it, completely cleared that thing and bent the front end 4" into the air and disconnected the coil wire, ahd to get hauled off the track but the jump was worth it. Motor locked up this morning unloading it

    Off to the scrap yard she goes next week.





    No video yet becuase my cousin and I went with no cameramen and we ran 3 vehicles apart so we didnt have time to record each other. I rodered a dvd of the event so I cna pull the video though

    Now that I have high speed INTERNET again I was able to download some file converters and get the videos on youtube. Quality is crappy and there are watermarks on them but you can at least see 'em.

    Im hoping to pick up a cheap grand to run this year. My cousin picked his up for $200 and has placed top 10 at every event he has ran with it, I can normally lace in the top 25 with my beaters if they hold togather but im ready to get something that will last all season and then some.
