Extreme drive: Formula Off-Roader
Nothing else on Earth comes close. Like dragracing up a cliff. Massive power, minimal comfort
Posted: 11 Nov 2010
Turning is a slight issue; the hill is so steep that unless you accelerate away and down, the car will flip, so I just keep it nailed pretty much all the time, except when I crest a rise and jump, at which point there's a blissful moment of silent cinematic airtime followed by the hardest hit in the backside I've ever experienced. After an hour and two re-fuels, I run out of gas, and the adrenalin crash commences. As does the fear of death - with no seat and unforgiving suspension, I managed to break something inside me and passed blood in my wee for a couple of days after. But it was worth it: as extreme drives go, I'm not sure anyone's going to beat this for a while.
We say: nothing else on Earth comes close. Like drag-racing up a cliff. Massive power, minimal comfort.
