Toyo Tires and Desert Trophy Truck Champ BJ Baldwin have teamed up yet again for the third installment of Recoil. If you’re not familiar with the videos, take a look at part 1 and part 2, but not before hanging your head in shame. Each video outdoes the last one with high-flying jumps, a crazy hooning, and some type of furry, yet menacing woodland creature. (You should have been keeping up all along.)

Anyway, Recoil 3: Sasquatch Hunter showcases Baldwin’s hand-built, 800-horsepower, Baja race ready Chevrolet truck in all the right ways. Its massive coil-over shocks and robust suspension system allow the truck to jump over intense obstacles and land without breaking a bolt – time and time again. The outrageous amount of horsepower spewing from the V-8 allows for smoky burnouts, no matter the speed. The slow-motion footage shows just how much abuse the truck can handle.

But who’s BJ Baldwin, you ask? He’s the back-to-back winner of the Desert Trophy Truck Championship in 2010 and 2011, the winner of SCORE-international Trophy Truck competition in 2006 and 2008, and has more than 18 years of racing experience behind his name.

Though Baldwin has a serious racing career, these videos are all about having fun. And if the impressive jumps aren’t enough to impress you, the truck’s ability drift sideways without flipping over or blowing a tire will. Much of that credit can be given to the truck’s wide stance and the beadlock wheels holding the Toyo tires in place.
