Hey people,



I met up with Braze again and we had a brief bash at his local Sunshine
Coast BMX track. Great track, interesting jumps. Braze and I
tried to race out of the starting stalls but i was still in reverse so
Braze nailed it fowards and Itook off full speed in the worng
direction. Anyway we tried again and we collided in the air on the
second jump ( a medim sized table top) and yeah, Brazes truck stalled.
Anyway after that Braze went to the skate bowl and on his first jump he
smashed a spur, fuel tank and a motor mount.



After I arrived back in Brisbane I decided to go for a bash in a new location I found and here are some of the pics









Jumping over the bonnet of my car, I made it and I was stoked to
actually get a shot of it. I didnt want to push my luck and try again
so I only got the one shot.









A shot of my truck after a not so happy landing







Round ......





and round .......







and round. I tried a few different sized pipes, its heaps of fun and
relatively easy to do. Just make sure you have a full tank of fuel to
ensure plenty of fuel pressure so the motor dosent play up.











Obviously a failed attempt at dropping off the ledge, I hit a clump of grass and , well yeah, u can see the result.





Wheelstanding up the hillclimb. this used to be a great 1:1 scale
hillclimb my mate, brother and I used to do in our 4x4's but access is
restricted. We can still do it with savages though












More hill climb ....









and some more ....







We gave the savage a rest and plaued around in my mates Hilux. In this
shot he is bottomed out on his transfer case. It has 35 inch BFG Muds
and a locker in the rear, he is pretty hung up and I had to snatch em
strap him off with my truck.

Some good pics dan. I would like to run my truck in the pipes soon aswell. Jumping your little truck over your big truck is a nice touch. Bit unfortunate about your tank braze... i got myself a new tank after last sunday and so far damage free.

Some impressive pictures Dan! I can't wait to see this new location!



I was gifted a old but mostly unused pre-digital video camera this
weekend, so I'll be all set to film and photograph our bash session
next month.
I'll just need to borrow an analog capture card from
somewhere so I can get it into my computer.

Run in the Picco near 'that large park' Monday arvo.
