Thanks for finding my video above and below :

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vW-A2ZgHheg&NR

That was a video i made for a friend i brought my FG of. The FG didn't break on any of those jumps and it hasnt had the alloy arms put on yet. We missed one wheelie on video that went the whole oval length and hopefully we will get that next time on video.

Thanks again for posting the link on showing that fg's can jump good...

Hi Propane, & it look's like they can take a pretty good beating! There was a lot there, I wish the States would go Large Scale, not a lot around here[&o]. I like the Sand Dun's, but do U think all that sand would mess up a lot of thing's, bearing's gear's, etc.? Still look's like a blast![sm=thumbup.gif] Yes your video had a lot & some rough [:@] landing's! Nothing broke, Cool! [sm=lol.gif]

yeah... We have large sand dunes around here and i will be testing the fg in there next. Long as you double check the filter and bearings after each run in sand, it shouldn't be a major problem in thinking.

Hi Propane, The sand dun's here are small on Galveston, Texas. I live 10 miles north of there. I want to take my FG MT5 there, but I think I would get a Pre filter for the Pre filter. LOL . It would be nice to have sealed bearing's also. The salt water [:@] or should I say just the salt in the sand would worry me. O'Well maybe one day I will take a chance!

yup,some trimming is needed on the front cause the wheels will rubb when fully turned, and on the rear some is also need or else when fully loaded suspension the wheels also rub, but its no to much hacking,still looks pretty goodas it sits right now.
