Default MDB calls out Diesel Brothers minibike for a race

Have you guys seen this?
Minidragbike is calling out the electric minibike the diesel brothers built for a race. I for one would really like to see this happen.

MDB is always calling people out. That would be cool to see someone eat humble pie haha.

The DB are claiming 100hp on the electric bike, I just don’t see it hooking up if it’s that. It would be a fun race to watch anyway.

The 6 door megacab was a newer 6.7L ISB with a built Ford 4R100 transmission. Their Monster Jam truck BroDrozer has a heavily modified Duramax under the hood.

Kind of tempted to watch the electric bike vs Lamborghini but at the same time not really. Liked them better when they were kind of nobodies and didn't have a show on Discovery.

Interesting..
We don't get a good up to date on their show on the Discovery channel... Were kinda late to the game due to our government metering programs.. Nextflix is really bad here aswell...

I haven't watched the episode, but they do show a mini bike in the preview so it might be it.

Wow, what a bunch of malarkey. Sorry about that. Didn't really think that would be a thing. So here's what you can do to scoot around the malarkey. Get a virtual private network (Express VPN seems to be a winner. NordVPN was recently hacked and compromised) and it should allow you to watch the video because it can mask your location as in the United States. Caveat is, it's a paid service. https://www.expressvpn.com/ben That should get you a discount. Hopefully it'll work for you.

This would be kool to see!
IMO The electric bike should "walk away" from the gasser
...at least "off the line"
...but, to "win the race", it really depends on the "set-up"
(power to weight ratio, gear ratio, battery capacity etc.)
