I'm pretty sure that's a case of friends motivating you to do a little show boating and not enough experience to know what too much is. It also looks like he totally missed the race line and like hit the edge...

That's been a VERY popular spot for years! This is footage from back in '02 of the same spot during a race... In that opening shot jump in this one, Dan Vance, the driver actually breaks his back on that landing. Another side note, I'm actually riding shotgun in the truck at 3:31 and I think I've told a few of you that story of having to dump oil thru the transmission thru the entire race soaking my race suit in oil till I physically felt like I was on fire from chemical burns and then crossing the finish line with the shackle bolt about to fall out after having a couple flats... This video shows all that evidence. That was a LONG day!!! LOL My advice, if you ever find yourself having to rig up a coors light funnel to pour oil into the transmission nonstop virtually while on the fly. Take my word for it, tape the funnel low enough that you can visually see into it so you can tell when the oil has backed up and is about to spill over the top. Cause everytime it does that, you're bound to hit a jump or a whoop and have the entire funnel's worth of oil cover fly out and cover you in oil... hundreds of times over a few hours too...

That's a 7S, pretty much the same thing as a jeepspeed. Not much you can do when you're limited to 12" of travel and no bypass shocks. It's actually not nearly as bad inside as it looks from outside. I remember it feeling pretty much the same as Jason's truck honestly.

I have a Napoleon Complex?

I wouldn't even begin to think about hitting a 3ft tall vertical step at speed. That is just retarded.

I've hit that jump probably 30-40 times in my truck doing about 30... Let me know when you want to go do it. Depending how things go, next time I hit it will be in a bigger truck and going faster yet. But in all seriousness, I love hits like that!!! Cruise up to them reasonably and pin it right at the base to compress the front end and rebound it hard off the lip! That stuff is so fun!

You can see the face of it here... It's not that bad of a jump, the landing can be harsh if you smack the face of a whoop perfectly wrong though.

LOL, looking for those vids, I had to watch this quicky 8 second one. This is a pretty famous jump in Mexico cause the crowds can get crazy. Watch the left side... talk about sketchy!!!
