Question Why Rock Bouncers Don't Air Down?

The question has been asked numerous times.

The answer is:
Because sometimes their tires leave the safety of the ground. And they need that small amount of air pressure so they dont bend a wheel when they return. See Exhibit A-Z

You're Welcome.

All I see is a bunch of reckless stupidity with a lot of people too close to the action that could get hurt.

But under your username would suggest its no big deal.




Those guys do what they do well. If someone left one in my drive, I'd beat it like a hooker that owes me money.

It was a mounting issue with the alternator. Fixed now.

What do they do well? Waste a lot of time, tube and fuel? Let their rigs burn to the ground? Throw a bunch of dirt around getting not much done? Hmm, who has the video of all the rock bouncers trying futilely to make it up a hill climb and rolling back down and then some crawler comes up and idles up the climb?

I'll be glad when this rock bouncer infection dies off. It makes us all look bad.

Comes into a thread about rock bouncers...talks about how he hates rock bouncers. (Sheldon voice) Fascinating



They put on a hell of a show for the crowds. Would you say otherwise? Think maybe thats what they are trying to do?

Kinda like those crazy guys in Norway, Sweden, etc

Rock bouncer is not going to die off, boring slow rockcrawling comps will die off though. Lets face it, KOH is great because guys are doing JV at new speeds versus years ago. It is more exciting. 1st gear lo-lo crawling brings the yawn as a spectator.
Maybe Baja should be limited to 10mph just so everyone is safe and you can follow the action better

Last time I checked there were no rules about posting opinions in Shitchat. Not to mention that there are already a couple thousand threads posted here with some random video showing something unsafe and everyone pretty much universally points out how unsafe it is, how stupid it is and how it's ammunition for land closure and other issues and yet because it's posted by some rock bouncer advocate, this is allowed a pass? The hypocrisy is breathtaking.

As for it putting on a show, yes it does. I'm sure people enjoy it but to me this is like monster trucks. They can be entertaining under the right circumstances but out in the woods less than 20' from people protected by nothing more than a strip of caution tape is not what I would call ideal circumstances.

Could it not be said the same for any sport?
Rockcrawling up the same obstacle by 1000 different jeeps.
Lap after lap at Daytona.
Lap after lap at Indy.
Lap after lap at Monte Carlo.
Lap after lap at (insert race/event)

That jump in the first three vids. The ascend does not look so steep that they'd need to go all out to make it up. So they're pretty much getting whiplash, breaking steering and suspension components and really wearing on the drivetrain for what? Entertainment? Seems like it would get old quick.

Call me lame, old fashioned or a pussy, I don't care. But I prefer more technical driving, rock crawling, formula off-road, trial off-roading etc.
