Lil' Rich: Man with super human capabilities?

A couple of months ago I was talking to Rich and he told me a story that I didn't believe. He claimed that he lifted one of the front tires from BZ's buggy off the ground. BZ was in shock and told Rich that the tire had a lot of weight in it. I asked him how the hell could he lift the tire off the ground without it just falling over. He said "it was still attached to the buggy." I said there is no way Rich, you are full of shit.

I talked to him again after Globe and he said he did it again when he was at the event and BZ had added even more weight to the tire. Again I let him know that he was completely full of shit and there's no way he lifted the whole buggy off the ground. I told him he would have to prove it when we were in Hannibal. He agreed.

Sunday after the event I reminded Rich and he said "what will you give me if I can do it?" I told him I had a brand new Scrapper shift knob I would give him if he could do it. His eyes lit up as he fully realizes that the Scrapper shift knob is possibly the most coveted shift knob in all of motorsports. I have weighed my buggy on scales and as it sits the right front tire weighs 975lbs. Rich walked up to the buggy, grabbed the beadlock ring on my right front tire and lifted it off the ground at least 2"! I was in disbelief and told my spotter to try it (I wasn't going to try because I know I'm a pussy). Brian tried and couldn't even lift it enough to take the bulge out of the sidewall.

True story.

Ya, he carried that knob with him all night, even to dinner!
I think he's grown out of his own name.

That might be true but I watched him face plant off a roof here in Boulder. It was a graceful fall of about 8 feet.

Bill, you got your ass handed to you by the short Werock helper dude (Sorry, forgot his name)...It's no wonder that Rich whipped your ass too!

I can believe it. I'm a skinny little bitch and I picked up one of the tires on tiny at Off-road Expo a couple years ago, so did Dustin.

I dont care what anyone says though, Lil' Rich is still worthless when it comes to wrenching

It'd be more like a moose knuckle! For the right price/cause, he just might be conned into something like that.

I was telling all the guys at work about this and they all figured if that sissy yank that couldn't even kick a football could lift a tyre still attached to a buggy then it couldn't be that hard.

Long story short, 5 out of 7 could lift any tyre. It was pretty cool as i didn't think it was possible.
