I don't believe they aired down at all.

you could really see them bumping around.

they are TV hosts. I wish they would have set a better example of wheeling, cause this is how we get a bad rap.


My question, did they buy the Brute or was it loaned to them? If so, I hope a discount is in order if that gets sold... :-D

If the Brute can survive Adam it can survive anything!

I am pretty sure that is a demo Brute that AEV built and took on the Rubicon and to other events prior to Top Gear. I am sure before it's sold it will get a thorough once over along with a discount.

Default Brute

It was good entertainment. They did pound the sh+t out of the vehicles. A couple buddies at work saw the show and felt the AEV Brute was "legit", the real deal. Overall pretty cool.. I hope the company picks up some additional interest and buyers.

Was not happy with their version Tread Lightly.

I happened to notice that the Brute had over 14,000 miles on the odometer. My guess is that one of the boys at AEV (maybe Jeff?) had been breaking that bad boy in prior to the taping of the show. Good Times

Indeed, I noticed the same. If the tires were aired down at all, and I don't think they were, it could not have been too much as those tires looked to be very much inflated.
