There's a nutty show on MTV - usually Sundays - called Nitro Circus

Now, before you click the back button..

It's a crazy mix of motorsports action headed up by Travis Pastrana & company doing some of the funniest & craziest crap, and this was one trick they tried

Except he landed the Monster Truck on its' roof on the top of the jump

If you can ever tolerate the channel long enough, check out the show - funny as hell

That's exactly what I wondered. How many times did he land on the roof before he got it down.

Where's my beer and that half inch wrench?

the rear mounted engine helps an aweful lot on the weight transfer. I dont think a front engine truck could ever get all the way around. It doesnt mean I dont want to try it though :-D


We talked about this vid for quite a while on another website I frequent.

I noticed it didn't have a body on it anymore!! Looks like someting broke pretty bad in the back end when he landed too.

Very cool vid tho.
