nuthin' but a Monster Energy commercial, but worth watching

Excessive, materialistic, fantasy, reckless, but shows some of the capability of a Trophy Truck.

Man, how can that thing do a full spin drift on pavement without flipping?

Sweet.

You could do that too, if you can just keep the tires spinning on the pavement!

I love how t leaves the garage like the Batmobile used to leave the Bat Cave.

The drift on the curved concrete (dam face?) is pretty cool too.

It's all cool but that dam face drift is great and power line road

Desert truck with 800+ HP and 30+ inches of wheel travel for going across hundreds of miles of 3 ft whoops. Impressive.

Re: nuthin' but a Monster Energy commercial, but worth watch

I've been lucky enough to test and race a few top of the line Trophy Trucks over the last 10 years and they really are amazing. BJ has more seat time than just about anyone and has developed into one of the top 5 drivers in the sport.

Driving a Trophy Truck through 3 foot bumps at 90 mph is a rush, but these trucks are built for it and handle it like you can't imagine until you experience it yourself. I've taken a lot of first timers for a ride and you have never seen more giddy exuberance or pure shock!

Our shop just finished up a Trophy Truck for Jason McNeil, owner of FiberwerX. I've race with Jason in his previous truck a few times but haven't driven this one yet - looking forward to it. My partner Glen Straightiff did most of the build and Juan (JuanCo) who does our electronics, gearing and transmission mods, built the motor, 8 Stack Fuel Injection, transmission and did all the wiring on the this Trophy Truck. It is a work of art! I have some very talented partners at Agile Off-Road.

Here are some pictures as it was leaving the shop:
