Great video, they must have been using that to show how well the Cats could maneuver over rough terrain.

Whoa! So this video shows us that seat belts and roll cages are a really good idea. Several people caught a chestful of control column, one guy was flung off, and the big tractor brought the roof down on his head! Yeouch!

I loved the ejection seat on the one crawler. Looked like a big help in winning the race :smilewink:

Very funny video.
The guy that fell off of his machine made a really good recovery.

I've heard stories of the Bulldozer Gangs that used to ride into towns and wreak havoc, pillage and plunder. Very glad the pastime fell out of favor with the invention of whiplash.

That was a great video. I know my back and forehead are sore now. Amazing what they would do back then for fun.

Wow that was wild. It is a wonder that one guy didn't get run over by his own machine. You know they were all feeling that in the morning.
