First off roading experience near Ripon

A mate of mine who lives in ripon invited me to this small play park near to where he lives, not expecting much we set off, me in the fronty, him in a suzuki jimny, and when we turned up, i was greeted with this!

Was epic fun! i had no idea how tough these little trucks where! it grounded out, smacked the diff, hit trees and had rocks thrown at it, yet it powered up almost everything i pointed it at, ploughed through water and made it over terrain i wouldnt dare walk over! let alone drive over!! the truck deffinately humoured my complete lack of off roading knowledge and made it over more than my friends jimny! (though to be fair, the suzuki was on road tyres)

got a couple of videos too!

Casualties include both indicator side repeaters, one of the rear wheels looks slighty odd (possibly a broken spring) the locking wheel hubs keep ticking their arses off and the passengers window fell into the door lol oh and a ton of paintwork damage!

Cheers all
