Rock Bouncing, Is it a thing in Thailand ?


Recommended Posts

There's a real live one parked in one of the owner's auto collections at Nong Nuch Gardens, down past Pattaya. Given the owner's deep pockets and penchant for owning the real thing, It's probably a Tim Cameron original.

 

I haven't seen any in Thailand "in the wild" so to speak but with all that blip-blipping of the gas pedal, I reckon Thailand's truck drivers will excel at this.

It would be nice if they had there own Rubicon trail here like in California.  Of course then there would many upside down as they do not truly know how to 4wheel drive.

Dont think the Thais will take kindly to ripping up their land or national parks.

Where did I say I was going to rip up national parks ?

Yeah not seen anything like the rubicon trail here but have done some extreme off roading with a few Thai friends, was ok but not something I'd be keen to get into.

Mate it was a genuine question. I do not know of any trails for these kind of vehicles in Thailand.

We have them in the UK and I'm sure they have them in most western countries but over here?

Why not, those videos have been approved by Greenpeace, Greta Thunberg and AOC and the Squad.:thumbsup:

Wow, you built this on your own?

 

Looks like NOT a simple thing to build!

 

Mind if I ask how much something like this is, all in?

 

 

no not yet.

 

I can build something similar in my home workshop but many components would need to be imported but I think I can  keep the finished cost under 3 million if I use a locally source toyota V8 and transmission as cores.
