    Wow! He is almost as bad as whistlindiesel, it amazes me that people get paid to destroy high filler vehicles.

    No matter how rich i was , i don't think i could purposely damage something so expensive. I know how hard i had to work to get my 2010 raptor and mod it , and my 2019 raptor. Plus all my other toys.

    I guess if your making more off it than you paid for it . maybe.

    I cannot believe he didn't tie down the tires in the bed!!!

    Too bad he got over zealous with the speed. Easy to do with 702 HP, I know that myself.
    He needs to do that again with the same speed he did with the Raptor.
    And in dry conditions so he doesn't hit the jump at an angle.

    Now, I see that Dodge didn't do their homework.
    Seems like they didn't add extra reinforcements in the rear of the frame before the rear tires
    to "help" stop the the bending and flexing.
    But it did take Ford until the 2013 before they did that.

    I love that signature because it's so true. My wife pays as much attention to guns as I do to shoes. There's the long one, the short one, and the wide one. And I think she has maybe three pairs of shoes. But I can't remember what any of them look like. Every once in a while I do notice that the closet looks like the back room at a shoe store and I wonder what she puts in all those shoe boxes, but it never stays with me long enough to mention.

    My first reaction is that I agree completely. Then I start thinking, one of my big faults, and I ask what is the difference between his videos and pro sports, TV, movies, music, plays, opera, etc. They're all a huge cost in time, effort, and money so that people can sit on their asses and be entertained. Then I realize that we could do away with all of the things I just mentioned and I'd be perfectly happy, so my third reaction is that I agree with you again. :)

    Are you kidding me, he sent that TRX 20 yards further and twice as high.
    Plenty of videos of "Raptor Jump Fails"!!!!

    I watched, well skimmed, the new video and I wouldn’t be shocked if his “R&D experiment” doesn’t lead to some common modifications to the TRX platform for people who do decide to run em in the dirt. Remote reservoir relocation kits for example and maybe a redesigned battery tray.

    The truck is legit totaled.

    At least, for educational purposes, I now know about the weak spot battery/ecu mount.

    I think that mounting those resis on the cross-member is an awful design decision. I'd consider them a weak spot as well.

    Many think that the weight in the box is what smashed the window. No way. The window shattered because the bed hit the cab hard enough to deform the cab and smash the window.

    All in all, it shows me some of the failure points, but I stand by my previous opinion. the TRX is a tarted up street truck.

    He wants to say that he launched the TRX harder and farther and that's why it broke.


    here are a few pics from November. Bone stock 2020 raptor. The dude hucked it BIG. Bigger than that TRX jump. No damage ( save for maybe the seat foam).

    So tell me again how a TRX can compete with a raptor offroad.
