    That wasn't a typical all plastic big wheel. It was built a lot sturdier than the one I used to have. It's got a spoked front wheel with a pneumatic tire.

    You took the words out of my mouth. The big wheels I had 30 years ago had all plastic wheels and sat about 3 inches off the ground. I can remember skidding in the driveway and the wheels would get holes in them.

    I wonder where that was shot at, for once its not in his backyard.

    I can't believe he's still doing little things like that and not working on his WRC and other racing options, his body is pretty messed up at a pretty messed up already, I guess it's hard to stop doing what you love. Even if it means riding a big wheel off a ramp with no foam pit.

    I wore out my Knight Rider front wheel and went hunting for a replacement... We found an Incredible Hulk Big Wheels in the alley being thrown out, and swapped the wheel over. :D
