yeah, I liked the fact that at the end when you backed off of it, the shocks just extended and all was well. Almost like Ralph said "is that all ya got?"

This is how These "vendors" should show the design strengths of there chassis . I'm sure others would fold.

I know I would not do it with my hustler .:-(

I did it the other day with a Hustler and the chassis held up just fine, no bends or damage at all. I had planned to do it again today but I've been busy running my 5BSS all morning. Now that I see JIA's vid... what's the point.

If a chassis is well built it will withstand being run over no problem. I will eventually get a pic of a Hustler under the wheel of a heavy rig, but right now I'm going back to run another tank through the 5B.

Didn't go the wuss route and do just the frame...ran over the entire RTR rig.

It's unharmed...not even a bent shock shaft.

I dare you to drive him off a cliff.

My goal for my next tuber is to be able to just be pounded upon by anything, I know for a fact that I will need to go solid steel.

oh and DAMN, Ralph is a beast

Why am I reminded of the "hit me" scene from Raging Bull?

Too bad there's a nuclear-testing ban. I think that's the only thing that could really hurt him.

I'm pretty sure the twenty ton press would do some damage.
