would love to hear him explaining what he has to be aware of, and what he does to ensure a safe landing in those jumps.

I wonder if NJ's rig is all bone stock Cab stuff?

I would hope his lines are at least beefed up or modified for doing such nutty stunts....

So driving a Mercedes and wearing Diesel cologne helps in successfully jumping of buildings with a kite? :roll:

Perfume is poison, full of toxic chemicals not listed as ingredients, The stunt is a stunt, not for you to try and do.

I wondered if it was real? I guess it must be? but why not follow him all the way down? There's no wind on the water when he lands.
Seems nuts without a parachute at that height.

I recognise Nick and Damien Walters (jumping off the car and back on again as it drive past). Anyone recognise who the parachutist was?
