heh cant imagine that in a bug.
yeah. it kinda scares me as it is. like i said, my dad stepped on the gas hard once and he told me he almost shit himself. i noticed on the engine, they put some bolts on the bottom of it so when it does a wheelie, the bolts would hit the ground instead of the engine. it looks like its seen alot of wheelies too cause the bolts are all bent and almost completely gone(some serious wheelie grindage). but the thing that still surprises me the most about this bug is that i drove it 215 miles with no problems, and i only used about $40 in gas when i brought it home. theres no way in HELL my truck could have done that. it would have blown up, and if it didnt, it would have cost me about $300 in gas. i think i made a pretty wise choice about selling the truck.
