Things got a little western yesterday going after the record. Even with a 14 mph crosswind and landing a little sideways we did it! We hit 247 feet and got the record back!!! We’d been fighting wind and rain this entire week. The winds were gusting up to a 30 mph cross wind. Everyone was told I wasn’t hitting it because of the wind. But right as we they canceled it the wind died just enough for @gregggodfrey to give me a green light. As I was heading to the ramp I saw the flag pick back up from the wind. I almost lifted off the gas from it. I then thought well let’s see what happens and hit that skinny pedal. I ended up hitting it at 84 mph. The back kicks over to the left as I’m in the air. I dropped my driving stick and grabbed the wheel with both hands. I land and it kicks hard back to the right but I was able to counter steer out. What a ride!! Thank you everybody for the support! And thank you to @desert_speed_shock_tuning for dialing the car to fly perfectly flat! What an awesome event to be a part of!! @heavydsparks @the_diesel_dave @diesel.brothers @discovery @polarisrzr @hcrracing @methodracewheels @evo_powersports @sdrmotorsports @sparcousa @bfgoodrichtires @godfreytrucking @superatv_com @gavgodfrey @hans_smco @pgodfreyy @chansgodfrey @jswankers @courts_taylor @warfightermade and everyone else, thank you!!

Es gibt jede Menge Personen, die jeden Tag an die Grenzen ihrer Offroad-Fahrzeuge gehen, aber wenn es um weite Sprünge geht, dann wird der Pool an harter Männer schnell kleiner. Tanner Godfrey übersprang im Rahmen des Saisonfinales der Diesel-Brothers (TV-Serie) mit seinem RZR eine Distanz von 247 FEET (75,2 Meter)  über eine Douple – kein Boden zwischen Absprung und Landung – und füllt erneut die Rekordbücher.

Technische Folge: Die Kobenstange eines Federbeins hat sich auf Grund der hohen Kräfte bei der Landung massiv verbogen und wanderst in den Müll!
