REPOST!

There's a video out there of a Nissan Hardbody that got MASSIVE air off a snow jump. I'll have to find it.

that's one of the stupidest things I've ever seen anyone done, not only is he risking his neck with the hard landing, but he seriously risked his friends riding in the back and in the last one you can clearly see them snap back, that had to be a hard hit

there's another one i saw where the guy destroyed his car and got hurt real bad..I'll post it when i find it

what is the world coming to these days

EDIT: heres the other one, its a first gen too

these people are nuts.

These are the kind of dare devils that drive up insurance rates for the rest of us. Personally I think their licenses should be revoked.

well a couple of old friends and i were out drinking in our local gravel pit one afternoon and i had my ranger there and one of the friends had his s10 there.. well a few beers later this friend decides he's gonna jump his truck (its a bush truck, not a pavement driver) and it jumped it a few times cracked the bell housing... he got it moving again with no clutch and jamming it into gear and was hauling *** doing like 60km/h and landed, smashed his head on the steering wheel and bent it.. then not a month later after he gets it fixed he rolls the friggin thing.. squishes the cab, dented the whole drivers side, cracked the windshield, dented the driver's fender so bad the hood wouldnt open, and of course it came to a rest on its side so i had to pull him back over... and he's driving the thing today.. its amazing the truck is still going.. its a 88 S10 4x4 regular cab, 2.8L 5 speed with no brakes..

and we did get the jumps on tape, its on an ex-friend's video camera still.
