I bet Mike and his nut swingers had a circle jerk watching his super sweet pro 73 truck on the news.

No shit. I bitched about the truck being underbuilt for that jump and not a Pro2 as claimed, and that he drives like an idiot based on personal experience, but I know nothing about the guy's personality or anything. He may be a cool guy and get along great with me and my friends. He's obviously got common interests with many of us, so why automatically assume he's a douchebag?

to be clear that truck is a pro lite 4 cylinder 22re. short course truck. body caught a gust of air and sent it flying wrong. he is rebuilding the truck for this weekend. just sayin

To be clear, I fixed it. I am fairly certain I would like Mike as long as he doesn't call it a trophy truck or pro anything.

To be more clear, why does he call it a Ford Raptor? I'm not hating on the guy, I enjoyed the video, I am hating on his truck...it is/was a POS

I think he might also have a so-called Pro2 truck. I saw another video that had his name with a white glass Raptor-looking bodied truck that sounded like a V8. Hopefully that one had a better frame. I like the style truck and like I said before, it's probably built better than 90% of the junk at Silver Lake, but I still don't see how that's a Pro-anything. ProLite style, sure, but not a real ProLite truck. Feel free to prove me wrong with something other than opinions and word of mouth.

I thought he was a jackass by watching other videos of his driving at SL. I didn't start really dogging him until his nut swinger bronco bitch pm'd me repeatedly and said he was going to pay me a vist. Now I am just bashing him in hopes bronco bitch comes and give me the wrister he promised.

I can't bag on this guy. Give me 4 wheels and a helmet and the risk assessment portion of my brain gets much smaller. Add roll cage and it pretty much disappears. I don't think I would go wide open around the full park when there are people everywhere but I would have no problem hucking the thing off the top of that hill with a spotter. That could also very well be an old pro lite chassis retired for play duty. If the rear clip was triangulated as well as the sst chassis I build parts for at work it would have went ass over tea kettle after it augured into the sand instead of taco-ing the frame and setting down nicely. Well planned crumple zone if you ask me......

Iam just loving the comments on the video over on Youtube. DuneTV1 is praising this guy like he is a god or something. Calling him the "DA MAN" and how he had
$30,000 wrapped up into that truck ! Freaking hilarious i tell you !!

Who cares, the guy is out there having fun and hurt nothing but his own rig. He also has a silver ford raptor that he constantly beats the hell out of, so breaking things doesn't seem to be a major concern of his. Yes, he may have more balls than driving skill...but that's entertainment for the rest of us.

I don't understand why people are praising him like some sort of hero for blowing a jump and trashing his truck, but the same goes for the people hating on him for having fun out there...as long as he has a spotter for jumping, follows the park rules, and hurts nobody but himself....let him be. It's natural selection at its best, eventually...they weed themselves out.

I agree with all of this, except for the fact that he doesn't have a spotter most of the time and regularly endangers other people in the park. The same goes for lots of other people out there, but this is the only guy we're currently discussing.
