Re: Landed, but front end not down yet... (photo)
Ken, I will go with you there! This corporate crap is fun to watch but I wonder what many of us could accomplish with RedBull beneath our wings! Those ramps, the entire set-up, at least a half million bucks! But, this pic you show of Henry is one angle! He landed smack on the 10th car square! And, I know, you say so what? It's fun, it's real! I agree Ken! But, I'm not the tool that is claiming I set a world record! I'm not the tool who tanked it 2 years in a row! If Henry wants to turn to the crowd and say did everyone have fun then great! It is real! He is not The Man Ken! I'm sure he's a nice guy but what he did here is what we used to call playing hop scotch instead of jumping! The damn crash was in his head so he played hop scotch when what he should have done was just rip it off the ramp like a pitcher throwing a fastball! So, fun yes, the man? No freakin' way! Hop Scotchers aren't ever THE MAN!! Especially with a FKN straight run in! 70 freakin' feet! C'mon Ken! But, I'm right with you on this corporate crap!!
