100%...this machine was built to make us laugh...not to cut fast laps... we have Truggies and buggies that cut killer laps, this machines entire purpose was to be ridiculously over powered and be a pile of fun.... For what we were intending it turned out to be a smashing success...every single person who has driven this machine has come away with a huge smile of their face...and isn't having fun the whole reason this hobby exists..... this is a fun machine first and foremost, we couldn't give a dam how good it gets around the track.....being able to clear the triple just makes all that much better IMO

Uncontrollable is fun Im still trying to talk the president of our track into building a 100' sand drag strip for sand drags I would just love to stretch out a 1/10 scale chasis and put an absolutely rediculous Clocked big bore motor in it with some paddle tires for drag racing!

Even though you prefaced your post with this, you did indeed come across sounding both mean AND critical.

There were some benign comments mixed in, but the "dork to not-dork" ratio was pretty one sided.



Neal did what every full scale hot rodder has ever done....stuffed a big, honkin' engine in a vehicle way too small to need it, and then let 'er rip!

The "make your face ache from smiling", fun factor alone is what makes this project a big success!

I think it would be cool if you put a flotek body on it. It would make the jumping more predictable and with the fins it may jump straighter. It isn't a sure fix but it helps the jumping a little bit. I don't drive nitro but those jumps were awesome. Just my 2 cents.

And you have to wonder why these people don't like you?? It's nothing to do with engines - it's the obnoxious, incessant trash-talking.
