Talking

here is a few pics from the X-Games in Cambridge, MN. They were taking in '07.

They call this jump "Menard's Mountain" as that is who sponsored it by giving the lumber to build it.




This last year, Ryan Lutz came out and it was awesome seeing him race. If you get a chance to come to this event, it is over Labor Day weekend. What a great time. they also have other things like a spud run.





Yes that is good 'ole mashed potatoes!!!!

Someone mentioned this in an earlier post:



Alright guys,

For 2 months now Alan Burton and Adam Drake of team Losi have been working on designing a Losi 2.0 buggy that could set a guinness world record for jumping the longest distance and landing it without crashing. They have been working with the engineers at losi to develop a car that would approach speeds of 70 mph and have the right suspension package to withstand the impact of the takeoff and landing without upsetting the car. Well, at Losi anything is possible and it appears after 2 months of work they have done just that. They will be using a losi 2.0 chassis with a newly designed 40 tooth spur gear and 20 tooth clutch bell. A new rear wing has been designed to accommodate for the increase in speed. Losi hard XBT tires with firm Foams, Nitrotane 30% fuel and a GRP .28 highly modified motor and pipe will provide the power. The losi is capable of speeds in excess of 70 mph so it will be something to see when these cars hit the ramp.

Alan approached me some time ago and wanted to know if we could build a ramp that would get them the distance. Well you know the answer to that and what better race to do the jump than the Psycho Nitro Blast. The jump will take place during friday practice at 3pm outside of the arena on the access road. The PNB will be building a seperate drivers stand and constructing the ramp that will send Burton and Drake the distance. The ramp will be roughly 4 feet high and 24 feet in length. Its going to be ONE BIG RAMP!

It is free for anyone to come and watch. You will not want to miss this, it is sure to be one heck of a spectacle. If you know Alan Burton and Adam Drake, they will be shooting for 200ft plus. We are very excited to see these guys go for it and you know at the PNB, Nothing is ever to big or crazy enough!!!!!

Here are a couple more from this year's X-Games. In the one, I barely landed the car. Total death rev in mid-air.
