Default Drake Guinness Jump attempt #3

Hey guys, here is a video of the 3rd jump attempt by Adam Drake. I have the first two jumps also but the video is way to long and I need to get the program to edit it. (Still Learning)

But this was the 3rd attempt which ended in a hard hit. Watch and see:

The first jump was the best one. It landed, chassis slapped, rolled 2 or 3 times and landed on it's wheels and drove away. It was like 143 feet or something.
Second attempt was a lawn dart.

24hrs of practice today, ending at 7am Saturday morning. Drivers meeting at 8am and 3 rounds of 10min qualifying start at 8:30 am. Most likely won't finish qualifying until 6am on Sunday Morning! Mains start at 8 I believe on sunday.

It wasn't a 'race buggy' it was modded with a .28 engine, longer 1off chassis, tall gearing among other things. Sometimes promotional 'stunts' or things of the nature are good for the hobby to try to attract outside interest. We need to make this hobby grow so thinking outside the box can go a long way in accomplishing that goal.
