    My comment was based upon the suspension. Obviously they tweaked it to give it the normal compressed look.

    Hey Norm,

    Ya - the suspension "self" tweaked itself after numerous drops. I believe the car survived 4 trips to the ground

    4 times???? What were they looking for that didn't happen on the first drop? Maybe they were trying to get the jumper to get in the car,and drive off on landing...? Silly T.V. people...

    The power of an Atom is a terrible thing to waste! Atom owner/operator since 2007. The more you chase perfection,the faster it becomes. John Force for President! (I asked him once in person...he laughed)
