    Yeah the back of the body kinda reminds me of some of the 2Xtreme Racing bodies used in the late 2000's, especially Iron Outlaw in 2008. Not to say it's a bad thing cuz I liked those, but I'd say what they currently have for the truck is right in the middle. Not amazing, but not bad either. At least it gives me the feeling that it's a preview for something a lot better coming, which it seems like it is.

    Knowing how hard the seats in those Hall Bros trucks are, that crash got me nervous. Really glad Mark's okay.

    That ride truck looks amazing! Really like the unique design to it. RJ Turner will be making his Monster Jam debut on July 15 at Lebanon Valley Speedway driving War Wizard.

    Well fellas, this is Heavy D's first ever in-competition freestyle. With that fact in mind, this run was absolutely stunning for a first timer. Heavy D killed it and I couldn't be happier with the end result. On a side note, I don't think I've ever seen a truck slam that hard into another truck before. Linsey's crew is extremely lucky that only really hit a tire. And on another side, Heavy D's crew chief was Colt Stephens.

    My jaw is on the floor and as heavy as a ton. Not just after that, but also after realizing that this is the second year in a row that happened, and with the same truck at that. Quad Chaos, more like Barrel-Rolling Chaos.
  7. So just recently I downloaded Rigs of Rods 0.4.6, and I'm having a few issues right off the bat. Some trucks that I spawn, such as Razin' Kane 2015, either have white tires or don't have tires at all, and just the rims show. Also, the game crashed if I pressed a single button after spawning The Black Pearl (Over Bored in that same pack works fine). That, and if I spawn it first, it's chassis is a transparent red. How can I resolve these issues?

    Axe is set to finally make its Monster Jam debut on October 27 in London, Ontario with AJ Ganci behind the wheel. A bunch of lineups for October and November have been announced, but most of them only have 6 trucks as of the time of this post.

    Was Matt secretly taught by Tom Meents? Goodness gracious....

    So my mom recently emailed MJ about this past Saturday's show at MetLife. Can't post exactly what they said because she showed me it off her phone and, well, it's not my phone so But what she got was actually a very detailed response. They mentioned how muddy track conditions provide a completely different experience for the drivers than dry track conditions do (obviously), so they did their best with the conditions. Because of the freezing cold and rainy conditions, only about 10,000 fans attended, rather than the usual 50,000-55,000 fans (I sorta see how; the highest level seating was almost completely empty). They also did indeed make the decision to cancel Two Wheel Skills so that the trucks could still run their best for Freestyle, and because of how muddy the track was. So that's just a brief summary on their response, and again, there's no one to blame for this show being terrible. Next year we just gotta hope for better weather. (They also mentioned how thunderstorms arrived near MetLife a little after 9PM, shortly after the show ended and after I got home. Another reason why cancelling Two Wheels was smart)

    Travis Groth grabbed his first ever Overall Event Win last night in Lexington. Also, in Frankfurt, Todd did this:

    So I just got back from MetLife, you know what that means. Another year, another review. MetLife Stadium 2018 Review Pit Party - This year's pit party was interesting as always. It took me quite a bit to get the Souvenir Yearbook, but I eventually got it and at that point began to hop on lines. This year I met Brad Allen, Cory Rummell, Brianna Mahon (for the 2nd time), Jamey Garner, Linsey Weenk, and Scott Buetow (for the 3rd time). I also asked Brianna if there was a difference between driving Whiplash and Scooby-Doo. She said not really, besides the windshield. I asked Cory how it felt winning the DDS, and he said it felt amazing. My dad told him that it's a dream of mine to become a Monster Jam driver (True fact peeps). Due to the weather conditions, I had to leave the pit party just under an hour before its closing to not get myself drenched. It was all downhill from there..... Racing - This was honestly a very interesting bracket. I missed all of Round 1 because I was in line getting a poncho (Everyone around me had one. The rain was that bad). I did pay attention to the screens inside the stadium, and saw Cory pull off a nice upset over Ryan in the first round. Brad made it to the Semis which was really surprising, but there was something that shocked me; Scott made it to the Finals. He ended up losing to Adam, but damn, he was on a roll during Racing! After the race, his motor was overheating and he went into the pits instead of his spot. Two Wheel Skills - We witnessed something that's never been done before with this competition; for the first time ever, it was cancelled. Not kidding. They went straight to Freestyle and didn't do Two Wheel Skills because of the weather, which was honestly a smart move on their part. Although I would've liked to see a different competition take its place. Freestyle - Where do I even start with this mess....for starters, some really good guys went out way too early. One example is when Colt Stephens went out first for the second week in a row. Scott went out fourth, and Bryce went out fifth. Cory went out tenth and had the biggest air of the night. Moving onward to one major problem, people were shut off for completely stupid reasons. Tom got shut off simply for BLOWING A TIRE OUT, while Colt and Linsey got shut off for no good reason. Scott was shut off as track crews were leaving the track and wasn't allowed to refire. Seriously? It just makes my blood boil thinking about the calls made tonight; they were beyond absurd. That, and nobody went for a backflip. Not even one driver. Maybe that's just a nitpick on my part but seeing that backflip ramp untouched at the end of the night was really odd. But back onto a more positive note, Lee and Ryan did have really good runs, and Lee ended up winning. Even though Ryan should've won, can't deny the fact that Lee had a great run as well. But it unfortunately didn't make up for what a mess this Freestyle competition was. Excuse me for this rant but it truly was a mess. And not the good kind. Overall - This was the first time I went to a Monster Jam show that sucked, and it was also the first letdown for MetLife Stadium. This was worse than Arlington, and maybe just as bad as Indianapolis. At least with this one, there's no one to blame for as to why it was awful. We just lucked out this year, and this was what we got as the end result. One of the worst stadium shows this year, following what was a phenomenal show last year. How sad. Rating - 3/10. First stinker for East Rutherford. I learned my lesson about muddy shows.

    Didn't know they ever did that O.O kinda surprised they didn't mention how certain moves are done (saves, bicycles, etc.) Kaylyn Migues took her first ever Overall Win last Friday night. Pablo Huffaker drove Grave Digger for the final time last night (Saturday) in Florence. If this is really the end for him, he was truly a spectacular driver, and will always be remembered.
