So is he actually on a new track, or is he just kind of running around and hitting portions of the track that are already there? I haven't been to ET in a few months, but I know I didn't like the way the Vet/quad track has been layed out for the past 6 months.....have they changed it now?

Billy you beat me to it. Yes this video is from a few months back when we finally broke out the MTEG truck to have some fun with it and test before the Del Mar tough truck race.

At that time I talked to these guys about doing something out here at E.T. relative to Del Mar. The interest was there as they were captivated by what the truck was doing on the old quad/utv track.

Since then I have not heard any word until this random flyer surfaced. I really don't think this is the course they will be using the faces on the jumps are about 2-3 times as steep compaired to what the norm is. I will stroll over there and see what's up today it's apprx. 10 mins from my place.

It does look like fun though and I'm sure we will be there in the MTEG truck to rip it up.

Ohhh...bummer. I thought maybe they changed the track.....I loved it a year or so ago when they were running the UTV races out there - probably the best layout they have had to date. Fun on a quad AND a UTV....wish they hadn't changed it!!

Let us know what you find if you head over there! :)

The track looks the same with no changes yet. It will be interesting to see if they use the same course/obstacles for this event.

as long as its not a mud race and its true to the standard tough truck entry fees ($20-$40)

they should do a big air/ long jump contest too

Todd the Prolite has no motor in it right now it's sitting on the ground in the shop with a baseball sized hole in the side of it.

The mickey truck is the tuff truck anyways I'm working on a third gear as we speak.:D

Are you coming out? It will be a gas I'm sure.
