There’s a good chance that we’re wrong about this but it seems to us that rock bouncing is to off-roading kind of like radial and small tire racing is to the drags. It is a wild off-shoot of stuff that guys have been doing for years but it has sprouted roots and really grown into something significant and awesome.
Then there’s this video which features the monster truck tire equipped buggy of Ryan Miller. As wide and as long as this thing is and as laboriously as it begins this attempt, don’t you know the thing actually looks pretty good. The huge tires seems to soak up some of the big knocks, and obviously the motor has enough power to turn all the tires and their locked axles as well.
The really amazing thing to watch is just how much material those big tires begin to move when they are sitting still and are clawing for traction. They dig massive trenches and at one point in the video the tires grab a legit boulder and send it down the hill.
After saying all of this stuff, it is important to note that the truck does function and climb really well. It has to be weird trying to drive it with the massive tires and stuff but Miller does such a cool job in a situation that was far more technical than grip it and rip it.
