Brute Roll Over

Found this on some other forums... from what I read, the Brute's throttle went haywire and went full throttle with the HEMI under the hood, hit a tree and a JK before rolling over. Everyone was OK from what I read, just bumps and bruises, and the guy with the C-Collar was wearing it for precautions. The White JK was on it's side before being righted.

I wheeled with those guys in Llano and Palo Duro last year. They have a shop called Screaming Lizard Customs and they're owned by the Grubbs. The Grubbs owns several car dealerships around Texas.

My point is; these guys were the biggest group of pricks I've ever seen and they're work is shotty at best. Search over at JU and you'll see what I'm talking about.

If the throttle went hay wire cant you just push in the clutch or stand on the brakes.

with a hemi, brakes wont do much, but clutch or tossing the shifter into neutral will work if you dont panic.. which takes lots of practice and training for most people. a lot of people are "pre-trained" TO panic, or its just human nature. Takes a lot of practice to learn to keep your composure under situations like that.

shitty though, even if they "had it coming" still sucks to see a nice jeep like that get wrecked. good thing the JK wasn't too beat up from being collateral damage

It's a thread about the white Jeep they had in Llano last year with the V8 and the coilovers. I think it had a red rollcage with a PSC front stinger just like the one above with the red tip. They had it on a ramp and couldn't get 2 feet up because the rear suspension wouldn't flex. I think it's in the "Pics and Videos" section.

I'll see if I have a picture of it.

EDIT: Found it.

yeah like jcs said, even if those guys had it coming (and i don't know that they did) it's a shame to see jeeps banged up like that.

All the HEMI conversions that I've seen have used the 5-speed autos. And yeah, with 425Hp, the breaks won't do much. Plus the HEMI is a "drive by wire" system... there wasn't a whole lot he could have done, other than try and avoid everyone, which he failed to do.

i disagree about the practice and training, i was in my CJ5, and i was coming down a steep hill with a sharp turn at the bottom it was an s turn actually, from flattening out and taking the turn fast the spring that holds the throttle down popped off so my engine went full out as i was coming down a hill in third gear (out of three) and around a turn and then another, i popped the clutch and killed the engine, pure instinct, and this was all last summer before i even had a drivers permit to drive on the road with my parents in the car

now granted a wide open hemi will accelerate a lot quicker though!

Everybody is different, some people are better with it than others, but most normal "shepple" panic bad in unusual situations. I stand by my opinion, and I have seen it proved under a plethora of situations, ranging from automotive, to going ghost hunting, playing with explosives and fire, etc. etc. etc.

Moving on with the topic at hand.. I would like to know what they plan on doing with that. Most people roll a Jeep and say, well.. time for an AEV conversion or tube fenders etc... This guy took a BRUTE and rolled it... wheres the next step from there?!!

Funny you should mention Grubbs. I know the guy that traded in that Rubi, before they did all the work to it. He never had that Rubi off road, and bought a JK. Grubbs immediately chopped his Rubi, into the Brute you see pictured, after the trade in. That is just pretty damn funny, for the arrogance, that you already mentioned, about Grubbs. Couldn't have happened to a better group of pricks, except maybe if it had happened to the Poison Spyder guys................

Ha! I couldn't agree with you more.

Funny thing is that they were there to PROMOTE their company to a captured audience of Jeep enthusiasts. If they were smart and had played their cards correctly they probably could have gotten some business from it. But they were stupid and acted like a bunch of arrogant assholes and guaranteed themselves that the 250+ people attending will set spend a dime with them. People amaze me sometimes.
