Geez this guy has a lot of $$$ to trash cars with, considering you can option the TRX up to somewhere around $100,000. I am well aware of how well its suspension system is set up though. But even its Bilsteins can only take so much before they call it quits.

I'm actually kind of impressed how well it handled that landing. It looked like it landed on the PS front first which puts a lot of force in one spot. It probably helped that it was soft, muddy soil and not hard pack.

There's always been no-talent grifters making a buck off of their stupidity. Now they just have a bigger audience. Not that you don't already know this.

Yeah, in the lead up I was thinking that he was going to collapse the front passenger suspension. I can't imagine the whole cab isn't tweaked though looking at how that rear glass went, it may be a salvage vehicle at this point.

Kinda want my click back, but the data point of the truck taking that kind of right front impact and still rolling is a fair takeaway I guess.

Yeah, just amazing how easy it is. No need to get picked up by a TV channel, have a talent agent, get sponsors, etc., all you need is a camera and a YouTube account.

How did I know it was going to be Streetspeed717 while he did probably ruin a new TRX he is a genuine car guy.

He jumped a brand new Raptor off the same "ramp" and it only broke a bed mount and dented the front skid plate. He took way more speed in the TRX though :Dhes crazy haha(y)(y)

Rich people doing expensive activities in a "safe" area that won't hurt innocence. No problem by me.... USA currently need more economic injection from the rich.

He's a good dude, been doing some crazy stuff with his cars for a while and does really good giveaways. His first jump was with his new(er) Raptor...that was really fun to watch. Also, his hot wife drives the Lambo SUV. Give him a chance, his content is pretty solid, especially his Corvette stuff with his neighbor Rich.
