HCH is a god, I'm just not sure what he is the god of yet. I haven't seen him in a while.
And you know this because you've seen pictures of it.
And exactly how many Jeeps have you built to go fast?

I've also seen video of it out of control.

I don't have to be a rocket scientist to know that when a rocket blows up it was a bad rocket. Just like I don't have to build lots of sand drag jeeps to know when one of the ones I sees handles like shit.

I'm not sure what Jeep you're talking about, but lots can happen in sand drags even with a great chassis setup. Jussayin.

Oh, and clearly HCH is God of "being a dickhead wannabe-know-it-all on the internet".

So because you've also seen a "video of it out of control", you know how it's built?
I've seen it go down the track not "out of control" many times. Depends on the conditions. I've seen many many cars "out of control" on the roads. Must be GM, Ford, and every other car manufacturer doesn't know how to build a chassis either, because I've seen a lot of stock vehicles "out of control".
In other words, you're trying to be the authority on how a sand drag Jeep should handle, yet you've never built one. Have you ever even driven one? Have you ever driven anything moderately quick?

Except a wannabe, I'm all that I will ever be, and I'm okay with that

The yellow one, that was all over the place at Schuss, all over the place in some sand drag video I saw, and all over the place in some dune TV video.

We've already covered that fact that it has a badass motor and is a good looking jeep, but the chassis set up doesn't appear to harness the power very good, at all.

Wat?

Well, then he sucks at driving because he can't control his vehicle. You tell me. It's one or the other right?

I mean, either it handles good and he's a good driver and can make it go straight like tons and tons and tons of other vehicles out there.

OR

He sucks at driving it and those other guys are better drivers....

OR

He sucks at chassis set up and can't get his vehicle to harness the power and drive in a straight line.

You tell me.

Yes. It is always the bikes fault, never the riders. Duh.
