    Default "Hell Bent"

    This guy, Tim Cameron, has been dominating the "Rock Bouncers" for a long time...

    He doesn't "always" win, but he's a good driver and he knows how to build a helluva rock bouncer...

    He started the season with a bouncer called "Stand Back", but it broke too much... so he got this "Hell Bent" chassis ready to go (with the same engine etc) in a few weeks..

    He was way behind in points for a little while, but then he went on to win the championship by just a few points... just slowly chipping away, and it came right down to the end...

    This buggy is awesome!

    Today YouTube algorithm suggested me TC's most recent compilation https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pEN0IhnVsaomaths_help/ love it!!!

    This time they included an inside POV camera, you can see it around min 8:00, looks amazing to me, in my opinion they gave it too little video time to this angle, I'd think ppl would like to see more of this.

    Ok I have a question... Those vehicles are an amazing piece of engineering but I wonder why they don't put the driver's seat and controls in the center instead of the left side. I would think you would get a better look at your vehicle's relationship to the course and less chance of getting the dirt thrown in your face.

    Len, there was a single seater named "Under Rated", built by the same guy (Tim Cameron). It dominated for a little while, even had a hill named after it when it was the only one able to climb it...

    I don't know why he moved away from that style but, the guy knows what he's doing and he dominates the races so, who am I to judge?

    Here's a compilation for that one...



    A couple of other great ones I remember from that series are; "Outlaw" and "Screamin Blue"... Built by other guys...

    Tim Cameron seems to come up with a new rock bouncer every year or two, and then he sells the used one for $80K or so, iirc.

    Right on Leonida, I'm glad you like it!

    The two main Youtube channels I know of for those rock bouncers are "Madram11" and "Busted Knuckle".

    Now that is a point I hadn't thought about...... you right! maybe if they put the driver's seat in the center you'd get a better view and improve your reaction time?

    Ohhhh..... well, it had to have a good reason. I'm assuming that's the best way that's why driver's seat is to the left. Hmm makes sense. Thanks for shedding some light into this
