That sucks, looks like he over extended his shock and snapped it right off, expensive mistake.. unless he is sponsored of course


That LED light bar is looking great Alon - I was curious.. what model of LED's is it using? I ordered up a Solarforce flashlight running a single P7 LED and it is -bright-... tempted to look into what it takes to fab up a bunch of P7's (Cost around 15 bucks apiece) and the proper resistors to make a little bit of a custom light bar for the front of my rig.

Landing honestly felt just fine, the second I landed I wanted to go hit it again...until I realized I had a flat tire.

I dont know if it was the adrenaline or what but the landing really felt pretty good.
