Monster truck devolution...his chiropractor will stay busy.

I think a rocker style suspension setup would help him here.

Press Any Key To Continue.

Almost...Seemed like he was either a little too fast or they needed the landing ramp a little bit taller and more of an angle. Truck flipped perfectly...Awesome

Nothing would of saved that landing.
He landed on the right rear & it bottomed out while the rest of the truck was still falling below it.
Thus rolling it over. A ton of rebound would of slowed it down but it would of still rolled.
If he hit the landing square, He would of pulled it, even with the slight over rotation.
Not useing a chopped Pro2 would of helped also.
