Cliff notes.

Guys goes huge and trashed his pro lite 9000 short circuit trophy truck(with helmet activated start). Most say it was cool, others hate because it wasn't them. An argument ensues. Liv2keyx steps in and says this guy isn't hardkorz, I'm hardkorz. Most agree with this and he leaves. A shitty yellow jeep becomes the new subject of argument, and people get butthurt. Most agree the yellow jeep is in fact shit. More butthurt occurs. I'm sure I missed lots of arguing and more butthurt. If anyone has any questions please feel free to PM Kickstand or Hancho

Let's correct the notes here...
Usual person has to try and degrade everybody else. Said person doesn't agree with somebody else, gets "butthurt", so then has to get all his internet buddies to try and bash others.
Same story, different thread.

I highly doubt you will get a serious good answer here.
Moving the motor forward would change weight distro, and mostly likely hurt more than it helps.
My motor is in the most forward position it can be, and doesn't help. Longer wheelbase out the front, leaving the engine in the same location, that may help with wheelstands. However, I don't think that's a concern there.

I'm sorry but the official notes have been published and no changes will be made. If you would like to submit something for the next set of cliff notes( to be posted after another 20 pages) please PM kickstand.

I can only give a third party account, twice removed of what it is and what happened...

Evidently first time down the track with a new engine (allegedly cost $75,000, seems kind on pricey to me) and new chassis (close to $30,000).

Engine is supposed to make about 1800 hp, left hard and wheelie bar snapped.

Many junk parts after this one.

I'm told the photo was pulled from a video shot on an iPad.

I know the car was sold last fall, They were asking $9000 for the car as a roller with transmission. Not sure on the new motor. The guy runs in the ec4wd. If you go to there website there is some info on the wreck.

Nice find.

I thought the story I got was a little overstated.
