Monster truck fail

Monster truck fail

MONSTER Duramax driver has demonstrated how not to perform a ‘stoppie’, at the Iron Horse Mud Ranch Super Bog event.

The Iron Horse Mud Ranch in Florida has seen its fair share of trucking hijinks. It’s there that many monster feats have taken place, but it has also seen plenty of drivers bite off more than they can chew. We’ve seen plenty of trucks roll, drown, even catch fire – but it’s been a while since we’ve seen a failure of this kind.

In this recently emerged video, the driver of the ‘King Max’ mud truck found the limits of his front end. The Monster Duramax, seen rolling on 85-inch AG tyres, was captured horsing around in front of the camera, experimenting with the car’s ‘stoppie’ capabilities.

After a few attempts, the driver tried again under full throttle, locking down the brakes and forcing the entire front end to fold under.

John, the owner of King Max, is well known for his ‘wild’ monster truck builds, so chances are he’ll be back in action soon.

The Super Bog event is held every year at the Iron Horse Mud Ranch – 520 acres of swamp land that has been transformed into a mudding hot spot – in Perry, Florida.

Super Bog sees hundreds of people come together to camp and thrash their ATVs, UTVs, 4x4s, SUVs and even their RVs for an entire weekend.

The event is also host to the World Freestyle Championships.
