Cool video though lol our heavy jeeps get work done without any throttle!
No debating that!
I looked at my buddy and said, "Why are we doing this?" then "You we could take out the bottom and it could swing around toward us."
What the video doesnt show is me freaking out once it broke because I couldn't see where it was going... I punched the gas toward the house, lol. The video does show my buddy got a little nervous too.
We're known for doing half way stupid stuff... nothing too crazy though, just not ideal.
Fun times though. Glad it worked out the way it did. If I didnt take it down, another storm would have.
