    I would hate to have to pay his tire bill and if I were in that, I would have a full face helmet on.

    Good point. Perhaps supplied air with a large filter somewhere on the machine? Less mass needed on your face that way.

    Spends WAY too much time in the air bouncing off the walls.

    To me, this is much more impressive, and will probably go where the first can't.

    I can see it's got four wheel steering, but it appears to also be independent front and rear. Can that be? And how is it steered?

    I'm not familiar with this. Is the point to build a big powered cage and then just ram it at full throttle through the woods and up the hills, in an attempt to knock them down?

    I enjoyed the video. The operator most definitely has a "Stubborn Streak". I wouldn't place much emphasis on Insurance needs, but I would be more worried if the machine flipped over and bent the protective cage tubing in a way that would prohibit the occupants from getting out. Just a thought.
